"We are stardust. We are golden.
And we’ve got to get ourselves back to the garden."

What do you get when you combine an experienced…
Ordained minister with an academically trained counselor?
A compassionate and soulful ‘Pastoral Counselor’ dedicated to the well-being of his clients.
I have so much respect for the courage required to reach out and ask for help. So I’ve created a practice in a soothing office atmosphere where you are my priority and your story will be received with reverence and without judgment.
In counseling you’ll learn to access and engage your inner resilience. Harnessing these resources will empower you with the confidence necessary to successfully navigate life’s inevitable challenges.
When it comes to your well being
hopelessness isn’t an option
My 30+ year career as a Educator, Pastor, Counselor, University, and Military Chaplain has taken me all over the globe. I’ve had the opportunity to work with a diverse and eclectic group of individuals, groups, and organizations.
Throughout my career, I have witnessed the inherent goodness within each of us and remain inspired by the strong connections I’ve make with those I serve.
I am deeply devoted to sharing my experience, faith, and love with my clients and will inspire you to do the same in your path.
“I help people as a way
to work on myself.
And work on myself
as a way to help people.”
– Ram Dass
I’ve experienced the effects of war… intimately
As a former Navy Chaplain of 28 years, I am still dedicated to the Navy-Marine Corps’ core values of honor, courage, and commitment.
What works for combat, does not work for mental health.
I continue my legacy of service by working with veterans on the local and state level through a number of professional counseling services.
I thoroughly understand the emotional and psychological struggles veterans face daily. I am ready, willing, and able to help you receive the critical services you deserve and have earned.
Over the course of my career I’ve counseled thousands of service members and their families struggling with:
- Panic Attacks
- Suicidal Ideation
- Family Reintegration
I’ve spent over 30 years helping
thousands of individuals
