“it is possible to find wholeness and peace.”
About My Work
“As people come to me, I treat them as whole people integrating in normal psychotherapeutic approaches with spiritual resources to help them on their journey to wholeness and peace. I work with individuals (children, adolescents and adults), couples (traditionally married and otherwise) and families (or units within a family) on a variety of issues that bring them into counseling as well as things that arise within counseling.”
My Story
“Details of my broad experience is available on my website. I combine together being an ordained minister (trained at Yale and currently serving in hospital and military chaplaincy) with background and credentials in mental health (licensed mental health counselor in New York and Indiana; licensed clinical addiction counselor in Indiana) to work with a client to find the best ways forward as they address their issues and move back to abundant life. throughout, the focus is on where the client is coming from.”
