About Us

Everyone faces challenges in their life and times when things are overwhelming.  When that happens, it is wise to seek out counseling as a resource.  Even though this may be a new experience for you and some people are nervous at first, I know from all the years I’ve been a counselor that you will quickly feel some relief that you are addressing the problem and are closer to a solution, even from the very first session.  No matter how big you think the problem is, you can always make progress.  At our center, we help with individual/family/relationship/marital issues and substance abuse or other addiction concerns.  We also offer a small, intimate, personally customized outpatient group rehab program that is intensive and includes one-on-one counseling, peer and multifamily groups.  It is essential to me that family members or those close to the family be involved in this process.  We use ANY AND ALL effective approaches to help you relieve your problems and improve the situation.

I have treated clients successfully as a Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist for over 28 years specializing in marriage and family counseling in addition to substance abuse and addiction issues.  I have used clinical hypnotherapy for over 26 years to help resolve trauma issues and aid people to stop smoking and address a myriad of issues using our subconscious mind as a resource.  I am also a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor and a supervisor for LPC Interns.  Click HERE to become acquainted with my staff.

My approach, and what I teach all of my staff, is to be active in your counseling experience, to give you observations and input with respect to your options and alternatives.  Although I cannot make decisions for you, I believe people come to counseling after they have exhausted their own resources and are looking for information and ideas about how to proceed.  There are skills and methods that really will help you to feel better and relate differently to others.  Once you decide to move forward, things change quickly for the better.  Just getting started in counseling is a great stride forward for you and opens the door to much more growth and progress.  I have been in personal alcohol and addiction recovery myself for over 33 years and I bring those experiences into our sessions to help if that is your concern.  I have been married over 33 years with two adult step-children. I am an adopted child and also a step-father so those life experiences enable a greater understanding of blended families and parenting.


I want you to know that you can turn things around.  All it takes is a phone call and a willingness to get started.
