      Does your child's behavior concern you? Is your relationship on the rocks? Are you struggling with, depression, anxiety, anger, self-esteem or maintaining sobriety...and want to get better? Is the current environment around you, stressing you out? Do you need a neutral voice and a no judgment zone to vent?

      Well I'm that guy. I am a Board Certified, Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor, and Licensed Clinical Addictions Specialist. My natural gift of helping people, initially lead me to a career in law enforcement.

      However, I saw a dire need for counseling within the agency and the multi-cultural communities I patrolled. I transitioned into counseling to better serve the public. As a qualified therapist, I have vast experience working with multicultural populations and working with outpatient and residential treatment programs.

      Working several years with adults and adolescents battling addiction and mental health problems, I realized my greatest joy came from inspiring underserved youth to be great, despite their circumstances. I also help professional athletes and law enforcment officers.

      I use integrative approaches to meet clients where they are. My philosophy and approach invites clients to think outside the box. I am an empathic counselor who views every client with an unconditional positive regard. My commitment and sincerity in helping clients solve life challenges, make me trustworthy in the therapeutic relationship. Call me to begin your new process.
