Licensed Mental Health Counselor | MA, LMHC
My goal is to assist individual Christians or Christian families to live healthy lives and for children, adolescents and adults to reach their fullest potential by living lives that are relationally, emotionally, psychologically, and spiritually healthy.
I am extremely comfortable integrating good psychology with Christian beliefs and practices. I regularly pray for my clients at the conclusion of the counseling session. I incorporate scripture when appropriate.

He has over 33 years’ experience as a full-time psychotherapist counseling individuals, marriages, families, children and adolescents in Ohio and Florida. He has also served as an inpatient therapist at Riverside Behavioral Center in Punta Gorda, Florida, and as a therapist and supervisor of therapists at Peace River Outward Bound, where he worked with adolescent males referred by the courts.
I recommend many different resources – too many to mention – depending on the issues presented in the counseling sessions.
