I am one of the founding members of The National Counseling Group. By working with adolescents and adults, I become energized by the challenges associated with helping individuals to improve their lives. With more than 30 years of clinical experience, I have honed my practice of providing evaluations, counseling, and court testimony in cases requiring expert opinions. In addition to my clinical work, I enjoy kayaking, hiking, biking, traveling, cooking, and gardening with my wife and family.
I have been a professional counselor since 1999. My expertise includes my passion for substance use disorders, cognitive behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, trauma, mood disorders, grief, and working with adults, children, adolescents, and couples. I speak, read and write fluent German. I enjoy spending time with my Shi Tzu “Sugar,” and have an interest in healthcare and brain-related research.
I have been in the counseling field since 2014. My work includes substance use treatment, cognitive behavioral and solution-focused therapy, trauma treatment with the use of EMDR therapy, and parenting work. I have worked with children, adolescents, and adults, and have worked in both the intensive in-home and school-based side of counseling, as well as in the out-patient realm of therapy. In addition to my clinical work, I enjoy spending time watching movies, playing video games, watching college football and hockey, and occasionally playing tourist in Washington DC.
