I am an experienced Licensed Professional Counselor who is deeply committed to helping individuals, couples, and families identify barriers and overcome challenges to find their own unique paths to the experience of more peace, joy, and fulfillment in all aspects of their lives.

I am the founder and owner of Gracefield Counseling, a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and also Board certified as a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC) by the National Board of Certified Counselors (NBCC)

As a result of my own transformational experiences in mid-life, I am committed to helping individuals experiencing psychological, mental, emotional and relationship challenges to lead lives of greater joy and fulfillment. Beyond my private practice, my counseling experiences include rehabilitating homeless populations in local cities, counseling inmates in high security prisons, and supporting patients and families in hospice settings.

My lived experiences add to my ability to empathize and support my clients; my many roles include father of two adult children, husband of 34+ years, sibling, son of parents who are now deceased, coach/mentor to senior executives, volunteer in many service organizations, and a leader in small and large businesses. My background also includes a successful career as a business executive where I have a strong track record of developing teams and individuals.

My education includes an MS in Pastoral Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Neumann University, where I was honored with the St Francis of Assisi Award in recognition of my outstanding work with clients and academic achievements. I also holds an MBA from the University of Connecticut.

I am a member of the American Counseling Association (ACA). I am also a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP) from the International Association of Trauma Professionals (IATP) and have received official training in the use of EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) by the EMDR Institute of America.
