Are you:
  • Struggling with the consequences of your addiction?  
  • Dealing with legal issues as a result of your alcohol or drug use?  
  • Having difficulty with loved ones or your employer?  
  • Experiencing difficulty within your intimate relationship?  Does your significant other keep telling you that you’re the problem, that you’re not “emotionally available”, you’re too angry, or that you’re not meeting their needs?
  • Feeling down, depressed, anxious, or angry; and you aren't sure where to turn for relief?
  • Coming out of a divorce, separation or breakup? 
  • Recognizing that your life hasn’t turned out the way you want - professionally, personally, romantically, spiritually or financially? 

One of the biggest barriers to men seeking therapy are stigma and fear.  In our culture, we expect men to “be strong” or “masculine” or “to suck it up”.  In reality, it takes a lot of courage and strength for men to admit that they’re having a problem, and to seek out help for it. As a professional clinical counselor, I understand the various issues that you face. I have successfully provided therapy to many men in your position and I want you to know that you are not alone.  I have the knowledge and resources needed to increase your life satisfaction and effectively work through challenges and obstacles.   Contact me today to talk about your pain, and see how we can work together in therapy to help you feel better.  Don't wait for things to get worse.  Now is the time to take ownership and be proactive.  I look forward to working with you.

About Me:
I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in the state of Ohio.  I founded Exploring From Within Counseling Services in January 2016.  I graduated from Columbus State Community College with an Associate of Arts degree in Sociology, Franklin University with a Bachelor of Science in Organizational Leadership, and University of Dayton with a Master of Science in Clinical Counseling.  
 During my clinical internship at Ohio State's Talbot Hall, I had the privilege of working with male adults struggling with alcohol and drug addiction by working in their intensive outpatient program utilizing individual, group, and family therapy.  

The majority of my employment background consists of working at Maryhaven as a Clinical Counselor providing individual and group counseling to adults involved in the Federal legal system.  I provided substance abuse and mental health counseling to individuals who were preparing for Federal prison or who were reintegrating back into society following their term of incarceration.  Throughout the counseling process, I also assisted my clients in developing the skills needed to avoid reoffending and challenged their various thinking errors.  Skills that were worked on included but were not limited to problem-solving; communication; decision-making; career exploration; job skill development; recovery within the family; family support resources; and marriage, parenting, and relationship skills.
I am often asked why I became a counselor.  For me being a clinical counselor is both an honor and a challenge.  I chose to become a counselor because therapy has been and will continue to be profoundly invaluable in my own journey from adversity to healing.  Life gets tough and change is inevitable.  I do this work because I care deeply about helping others.  I enjoy assisting individuals work through the challenges and difficulties of life.  I strongly believe that everyone desires to be happy and free of the emotional barriers that continue to hold them hostage.
