I love bringing hope to parents on the verge of pulling their hair out, those that feel like complete failures at raising their children, and those dealing with the overwhelming nature of a diagnosis such as autism or Asperger's syndrome. In each of these situations, my goal is to help you understand what is normal and expected from your child, what has the potential to change, and how to attempt changing it with the least amount of drama and resistance. This approach involves me working with both parent and child, as well as coordinating with outside caregivers and professionals.
I hold dual master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy and Community Counseling from John Brown University. Much of my experience has been working with families of children with special needs such as autism and Asperger's syndrome, as well as infants and their parents on emotional attachment issues.
I'm a charter member of the Arkansas Association for Infant Mental Health and regularly offer trainings on topics such as discipline, fatherhood, infant mental health, and special needs. My most important experience though, comes from the fact that I've been married for eight years and have five children!
