EMDR Certified Therapist

About Me

I began my counseling profession after hitting bottom in 2001. Coming to terms with my past, littered by multiple addictions and trauma, was not easy. But throughout my own journey of healing, God opened doors I never thought possible. Serving 26 years in the military, I advocated for recovery before joining the private sector. I understand the complex intersection of culture, faith, and sexuality. Because of my own journey into healing, I have deep compassion for people in the grips of addiction. It is a great honor to help others ready to deal with past wounds, take intentional healing steps, and move out of isolation into a more connected, joyful life. In addition to my passion as a therapist, I co-founded, a resource providing a facilitated weekly support group, consulting services, and presentations to church leaders and congregations. I have also co-developed Faith-Based Acceptance, Abstinence, Congruency, and Practice Therapy, a culturally sensitive approach for Christian men who experience incongruent feelings of same-sex attraction. At Walk by Faith, we value diversity and the many paths God lays before us. Supporting your journey while you determine your own path is our incredible honor. We look forward to the opportunity to work with you.
