I’m a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Clinical Director at Praxis Wellness a multidisciplinary wellness practice, where clinicians work collaboratively to support mental, physical and spiritual wellness. I work with individuals, couples and families as they navigate the milieu of Real Life! The struggles of transitions; youth-to-adulthood, education, career, relationships, death, birth and more – each can be faced with compassion and pragmatism. As an experienced clinician I can be there to help sort through and develop strategies to address mental, emotional and behavioral issues – challenging and providing counsel. As a former Marine, with a distinguished 25 year career, I have high expectations of character, behavior, discipline and organization – this is tempered with empathy and understanding of our human frailty. My experience leading and supporting Marines through training, deployments, and career transitions is instrumental in my counseling work today. ‚Äã At the end of your rope! Experiencing challenges with your adolescent? I specialize in supporting families to implement workable strategies for navigating these turbulent times. I do this through a array of individual and group sessions with your child as well as family therapy and parenting support groups.
