Because I am a First Responder of 22 years and counting, I have seen it all!  As I look forward to retiring in the in the next 5-7years, I am transitioning back into the field of mental health where I started my career back in 1990.  I worked in a residential treatment facility for adolescents and in psychiatric hospitals serving a widely varied population for the first 6 years of my professional career.  It was then I began working toward the Master of Social Work degree.  

Even though I am now the FNG (fabulous new guy) in the therapy world, I bring a wealth of experience with me!  As a police officer, responding to mental health calls, negotiating conflict, and managing critical incidents have been the most rewarding parts of the job.  My wife and I are also freelance writers, together having authored over 300 articles for leading law enforcement publications on a variety of subjects, including marriage, ethics, morale, emotional wellness, and managing trauma.  Our writing led to traveling the country as national trainers and speakers.  

My specialties include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety/OCD
  • Couples & Marriage Therapy
  • Trauma/PTSD
  • Emotional Wellness
  • Christian Counseling 
  • Job Burnout
  • First Responders
  • Bipolar
  • Executive Leadership & Coaching
  • Chronic Mental Illness
  • Short-term and Long-term Therapy
  • Personality Disorders
  • DBT, CBT, ACT, Psychodynamic, Mindfulness
  • Athletes
  • LGBTQ
