Areas of Competence –

Thank you for your interest in working with me. I am a fully trained and licensed professional counselor in the State of Ohio, and a retired Army officer. I have a very broad experience base that provides me with unique insight into many issues that my clients may be struggling with. I love meeting and working with new people and am committed to helping people overcome their challenges and restore lost hope. Working with people who have been impacted by trauma or abuse is one of my passions and I am deeply committed to facilitating the healing of those wounds. I have experience working with individuals and couples with a wide variety of mental health and relationship concerns. I am also very interested in helping my clients to take an integrated approach to wellness that addresses mental, physical and spiritual health, and I welcome the opportunity to integrate those issues into the counseling process if the client desires.

I have advanced, specialized training in Gottman Method Relationship Counseling, Sex Addiction Therapy, and trauma therapies like EMDR and Coherence Therapy.  It is not uncommon for past traumatic events to interfere with healthy functioning and I am very passionate about helping clients to heal from past pain so that they can have healthier relationships with themselves and with others.
