About me

I am a constant researcher combining traditional and current modalities into my treatment style. I am well versed in DBT, CBT, Solution-focused, Psychodynamic, ACT, Client-Centered, and The Gottman Method. I have traveled the country as national keynote speaker and I am a professional author.

Humor Heals
My clients describe me as accepting, compassionate, and kind, yet direct and able to get to the heart of a complex issue with simplicity, providing solutions they can begin implementing that day. As a seasoned first responder, I have seen it all and know how hard life can be. I know everyone carries pain and it can be difficult to find your way out. I am here to help you on your journey so that you can make the changes needed to live the life you desire.

Personalized Experience
I love using humor in my work with clients. They often describe me as accepting, compassionate, kind, direct, able to get to the heart of a complex issue, and funny. Maybe it’s my experience as a police officer. When you’ve seen people at the very best and very worst, you learn to truly appreciate this gift of life we’ve been given. I want all of my clients to have that experience. As a retired first responder, I also know everyone carries pain. It can be difficult to find a way out. I am here to help clients on their journey so that they can make the changes needed to live the life they desire.
