I received my Master of Science degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Capella University. I work with individuals, couples, and families. My approach to counseling is understanding that the clients are the experts on their lives and I am assisting them make the changes they want to improve their lives. I believe a non-judgmental approach is best and I enjoy working with all types of clients. I have received specialized training in sexual addiction and understand the pains associated with addiction for both the addict and the spouse.In addition to specializing in substance abuse and sexual addiction issues, I enjoy working with first-responders and their spouses. I retired as a police officer before entering counseling and understand the unique stresses and concerns of first-responders.
