Life is a journey, and sometimes it’s a rocky road. My job as a therapist is working with people to help them deal effectively with problems to make their journey less painful and more positive and productive.
My experience raising a son with an autism disorder put me in contact with many people suffering from various mental health problems. Seeing their pain and suffering was instrumental in moving me to enter the healing profession. I personally know that no matter how challenging life is, we can be victorious by turning negative events into positive learning experiences with determination, the willingness to change, and the right professional guidance.
I have been providing therapy and guidance to a wide range of clients for more than twenty years, including some 3,000 group therapy sessions at the Psychiatric Institute of UAMS. I have a special interest in treating people with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorders, loneliness, life change, parenting problems, family conflict, codependency, divorce pain, grief and loss, medical anxiety, medical pain, relationship issues. and aging issues. My therapeutic approach is eclectic, and as appropriate makes use of various evidence-based practices, such as Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, along with Mindfulness-Based Therapy, meditations, Spiritual Counseling, Sedona Method, Narrative Therapy, Emotional Freedom Techniques (AKA Tapping), Inner Child Therapy, etc.
It would be my privilege to help you with your journey. With love, determination, and skill, we can turn our problems into some of life’s most precious lessons, moving forward to greater happiness and a more fulfilled reality.
Take that step; find a therapist. And, may that be me!
Note: Today my son is a Ph.D. scientist, working in theoretical physics and living a happy and independent life of contribution, fulfillment, and direction.
