I am a father of seven children and several foster care kids. I am over 60 years old and I have lived a life of numerous experiences e.g. family suicide, births, death, divorce, financial disaster/success, heartache. The point is I/you live in the real world. I can empathize with you. My approach is timely, frank, professional and compassionate.
There has been a huge shift in the area of electronics. They, phones and computers, started off as as convenient tools which evolved into an extension of ourselves that we can not live without.. The use of electronics consumes hours of our day/lives and lays waist to our relationships. Many uncontrolled users exhibit all the signs of addiction e.g. tolerance, negative behavior (isolation) and even withdraw symptoms. They must be managed..
The first session will give us an opportunity to get know each other. The purpose is to establish an insight into the other person life. Basically, to get sense if we will be able to work together.

I am a father of seven grown children and several foster kids. I have worked with a variety of different age groups with a variety of issues. I have worked in the juvenile justice system and a long term residential faciality with kids (age13-18) with behavioral issues that may or may not be associated with drugs and alcohol. I have my own private practice that focuses on marriage and family issues. I have also worked with adults who are battling drug and alcohol abuse both in a residential facility and in my private practice. I have an office at my local church in which I integrate my faith with counseling.
