Areas of Specialization: Life Transitions; Career Counseling; Men’s Issues; Mood and Personality Disorders

I have special training in the psychology of work and career life. As a graduate studies professor in organizational psychology, I provide psychotherapeutic interventions to help clients manage difficult transitions — particularly in the workplace.

My clients primarily include: (a) leaders struggling to navigate the dynamics of their vocation and its impact on the home; (b) employees searching to discover and develop meaningful careers; (c) individuals struggling to escape negative internal messages that proliferate unhealthy conflict.

I have been an ordained minister for more than 25 years and I have extensive experience coaching pastors and other leaders who struggle to navigate the dynamics of their vocations. I provide psychotherapeutic interventions to help my clients manage cognitive, mental, and emotional issues while empowering them to negotiate the difficult transitions of life.

I used to help people get better at doing their jobs. Now I help them get better at being themselves.
