About Me

I  am an interactive, client-focused therapist. My therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. I integrate methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. With compassion and understanding, I work with each individual to help them build on their strengths to attain the personal growth or change they are committed to accomplishing.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Registered Intern specializing in adults, couples, and veterans (and others with work-related or experienced trauma). I use EMDR for trauma victims and others. 

I received my BA in Russian Language and Literature, Slavic and Soviet Area Studies, and International Relations at the University of Kansas in 1966.  I served in the US Air Force from 1968 to 1973, including a combat tour in Southeast Asia (Vietnam) as a pilot.  I received my Juris Doctor in law on the GI Bill in 1975 and practiced law in a general practice for more than 20 years.  My law practice included a wide variety of clients, including divorce, child custody, family law, contracts, real estate, and general legal counseling. 



I joined the Army National Guard in 1989 and served 15 years as an air ambulance helicopter pilot, including 3 mobilizations into active duty in the Army.  My mobilization in 1999 was to Bosnia, where I served a second combat tour in Blackhawk helicopters as a medical evacuation pilot.  I retired from the military in 2005 with 21 years of service.


I am a member of the American Counseling Association and Chi Sigma Iota, a Counseling Academic and Professional Honor Society.


I meet all of my clients by video conferencing/telehealth during this pandemic.
