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

-Woodstock by Joni Mitchell

The mind is key. What you think, you become.

The consequences of combat

Takes its toll on all who serve

In my 28 years military career as an active and reserve Navy chaplaincy, I became very aware of the emotional, psychological, and physical toll on service members and their families.

Over those years I’ve counseled thousands of veterans and their families during all phases of their service including pre and post deployment, active and reserve duty, and transitioning back into civilian life.

I’ve helped service men and woman deal with PTSD, anxiety, depression and the critical life adjustments back to the home and civilian life.

Together we’ll set goals that you want to work towards.  And together we will achieve those goals.

You deserve to have

Your post service life back

You deserve a compassionate counselor who can relate to your experience.  I’ve been in the trenches serving during the Cold War, First Gulf War, Iraq, and Afghanistan, and a three yearlong overseas deployment to joint task force in Africa.

The military culture requires us to display an invulnerable exterior, devoid of weakness and emotion.  So it’s natural we struggle with feeling shame in reaching out and asking for help.

You are not alone in your suffering.

I will help you overcome these often debilitating consequences of the bravery and dedication demonstrated when you answering the call of duty.

My six core values

The driving force behind my mission

Throughout my personal and professional counseling life I have weighed my actions, decisions, and pursuits against these six core values.

They represent my highest priorities, deeply held beliefs, and are essentially the driving force behind my mission as your counselor.

My promise is to uphold these core values in service to your well-being.

  1. Work to be authentic and real to ourselves and others
  2. Model a passion for growth toward a new sense of self
  3. Seek ways to become empowered in overcoming obstacles
  4. Pledge to be faithful and dedicated to the counseling process
  5. Struggle to become stronger and more courageous in the process
  6. Strive for a sense of self-giving love that defines our relationships
