Hi.  I’m Rob.  Nice to meet you.  If it helps, think of me as your Sherpa.  

When someone wants to climb a serious mountain–you know, one of the really big ones–do they just grab some granola bars and a tent and head off, hoping they’ll figure it out along the way?  No. (Well, some do. They don’t get very far.) Someone serious about making the climb will find a Sherpa–an expert who has made this journey hundreds of times. The Sherpa helps them figure out the safest route to their destination, helps them choose the best equipment for their journey, and helps them carry some of the load up the mountainside.  They aren’t DOING the work for the climber–they’re showing the climber how to do the work for themself.

I know that counseling can mean different things to different people–some good and some bad.  But counseling doesn’t have to be scary–and can actually be great!  I partner with each person so they can effectively meet their goals.  Like the journey up a large mountain, what works well for some won’t work at all for others.  That’s why I use different approaches with each person.  Most of my clients end their time with me feeling empowered, confident, and knowing themselves better than they ever thought possible.

I partner well with people new to counseling, who have tried counseling before and it didn’t help, military and first responders, medical personnel, people with chronic or complicated concerns (addiction and mental health, chronic pain, etc.), and Christians.  I work with people 13 years old through adulthood.

To meet the needs of people I work with, I offer individual, couples/family, and anger management counseling.  I also provide D&A/DUI/SAP assessments, life coaching, and workshops.
