Brief Bio:
When I put my children to bed at night, they often ask, "Tell me a story about your childhood."  Initially, I thought this was very sweet.  Over time, I have learned that it is their ploy to drag on the bedtime routine and maintain connection with their father, who is often gone a lot.  So, I lay on the floor and think about memories that are typically funny - memories that usually have to do with one of my older brothers picking on me.  They think those memories are funny, and they laugh, and I like the sound of their laughter mixed with mine.  I have a lot of memories of childhood, and I think in some ways, keeping these memories alive through storytelling reminds me I have lived.  I find this feeling often with the people (clients) that I see in practice.  Their stories influence and enrich my life and hopefully, I am able to offer something meaningful into the relationship that they find useful in theirs.  I try to bring these experiences into the classroom.  I look forward to meeting you and experiencing (along with your peers) the things you will contribute to the classroom as well.  Perhaps, in some small way, our experiences together will contribute to both of us becoming increasingly compassionate, effective helpers in the lives of those persons we interact with therapeutically.  

I recently completed my Ph.D. in counselor education at Kent State University. My primary research interests are oriented around the use of relationship-centered counseling interventions to support clients in achieving improved well-being. I am also interested in the intersection between facilitative conditions in the counseling relationship with the world of education, creative pedagogy, and embodied learning.  I currently teach full time in the Counselor Education program at Cleveland State University, where I emphasize areas including: multicultural issues in psychotherapy, group therapy, addictions, counseling techniques, and gestalt therapy. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Ohio and currently work in private practice in Hudson, Ohio. My clinical specialty areas are working with couples and families, where he utilizes a systemic and interpersonal approach to address relational difficulties and to improve communication. I use a holistic approach to address the wellness needs of clients, including spiritual and emotional. My focus areas are working with clients struggling with sexual addiction, drug and alcohol-related difficulties, grief and loss, parent-child relationships, restoring intimacy in partner-relationships, and gender transition. I also have experience providing parent education workshops, individual and group therapy for men's issues, anger management counseling, and the use of creativity in therapy to promote client wellness. I have completed extensive research concerning the use of humanistically-oriented counseling letters to aid clients in between counseling sessions. When I am not busy with school and work, I enjoy spending time, laughing with my wife and three small children.
