I am a licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a National Certified Counselor (NCC) with over 30 thirty years experience in professional counseling both in child/youth and couples/relationship counseling. For the last 10 years I have been a military and family life counselor (MFLC) . Over 90% of the issues I have dealt with during my tenure in this position have been relationship/marriage related issues. The challenges facing a military couple or family are immense and sometimes neither partner is completely ready for them, and the challenges they bring. Whether is the deployments, the moving, the housing shortage, the environment, being a military family is not easy to say the least and the need to just talk is immense and so that is what I do. I have learned as much from them as they have from me. So, I bring to the table, experience, a counseling style in CCT or client centered therapy, and a willingness to go that extra mile with you.
