I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Wisconsin with over 14 years of experience helping people re-ignite their motivation in their life areas and personal and other-relatedness. Having completed my Masters program at Cincinnati Christian University in 2007, I have been treating couples, using PREPARE and ENRICH as well as the work from John Gottman to improve marital satisfaction. Clients will ecognize the behaviors and practices that keep relationships from being vitalized.
My approach to therapy is eclectic drawing upon Cognitive Behavioral approaches, Solution-Focused and Motivational Interviewing skills, and utilizing therapy tachniques and practice assignments that get into the parts of a person that make up the whole. I focus on clients' strengths and awareness while they challenge the assumptions that limit their potential for fruitful results while doing their own work.
So, what do you want to work on? I invite you to contact me so I can assist you in answering this question and so you can realize a greater potential for your self and other-relatedness.

I've had sessions with another therapist and I feel Joel has made more progress for us in a short amount of time. I would definitely recommend Joel.
Joel has a wonderful demeanor and is a very good listener. He has a knack for identifying the issues and helping us see the other's perspective. We always leave the session looking forward the next.
Joel has been great to work with in a time of family conflict and past trauma.
I feel like my spouse and I are a challenging couple to work with.. I give big shout out to Joel for dealing with our shit.. he always has the right thing to say no matter what we are addressing.
We love him.
1st session was amazing he listened to our needs looking forward to more sessions
Joel has been amazing. I keep telling everyone how every time he talks he makes such a great point and I am always making notes because everything he says is noteworthy. He knows his stuff and he is a great listener.
I am so thankful we were matched with Joel. He is everything our marriage needed.
Joel is very good. He has given us new tool for communicating with one another. He understands where we are coming from and has been helping us to understand thing that we did understand before .
Joel has been very tentative to our concerns and is great at offering advice and techniques to use on how to strengthen our marriage. He listens fully to what we want to share, ensures he received the information correctly, and discusses each topic. My husband and I both have been very happy with Joel as our counselor.
