About Me

Strong, positive relationships are extremely important to me. Within the counseling relationship, you begin to see complicated issues more clearly, once overwhelming difficulties become manageable.  By identifying and applying your own unique strengths to difficult situations you begin to not only survive but strive. I approach counseling through a positive, strength-based cognitive therapy. My desire is for you to flourish as a unique individual in your own relationships.

On a personal note, I enjoy spending time with the family, traveling to distant countries (22 so far!), and studying military history.
