I am a provider with Aetna and United Health affiliates (UMR, Oscar, Optimum). You will need to set up your account with my third-party administrator headway.co to utilize your insurance plan.

I currently offer counseling 12 pm – 8 pm Mondays and 9 am – 6 pm Wednesdays. I will expand my hours in 2024.
What do I do to get started?
Hopefully, you and I will have a brief consult call, but if not, please use any of the contact methods below to set up an appointment. If I am in the network with your medical insurance carrier, please set up your account with my third-party administrator headway.co.
What if I must cancel an appointment?
What can I expect in the first session?
You will have a 75-minute session to complete a thorough interview of your relationship history and current problems, firm up my session procedure and counseling approach, and sign the necessary paperwork. I’ll work hard to give you something to think through or work on before the follow-up session.
Do you do couples therapy?
Yes, I offer an 6-session package but only for couples ready for a change. If you are about to split up, I am not your guy. I forbid nasty arguing in my office. Please offer each other the same restraint when you’re NOT in session. We will foster kind interactions in the session.
Why do you do couples therapy in six sessions?
There are several reasons. First, we are more apt to change when time is limited. Second, we can increase focus, both you as clients and me as a therapist, within this time boundary. Third, six sessions neatly divide the time into the first session for assessment and preparation and the rest of the sessions for learning primary strategies for reconnecting as a couple.
What are the main differences between coaching and counseling?
How do I know if you are the right therapist for me?
Since you have many choices, see how you resonate with what is shared throughout these pages.
You can research my website to see if I actually offer hope of a solution to your problem.
I’m a good candidate if you want to do therapy with a more “seasoned” counselor. But I’m not THAT old! Maybe I match your faith values.
In the end, connecting with one’s therapist is the primary indicator of success for clients. To test this, how about giving me a call for a free consultation?
Do you work with people from diverse backgrounds, ethnicities, and religions?
I thoroughly enjoy the diversity of a large city compared to the small town where I grew up. I lived overseas for ten years, which helps to expand one’s acceptance of different cultures and lessens narrowmindedness.
I am a Christian who sees the image of God in every person regardless of their background, ethnicity, or religion. That means I count it a privilege to walk alongside you and fully expect that you have all you need to make the changes you seek. No need to worry that I will be hard-selling faith.
