Personal Client Focused
Welcome to my practice located in the Old Vanderburgh County Courthouse in Downtown Evansville, Indiana. My goal is to provide a safe and comfortable setting to maximize the benefit of our time together. Part of my personalized service is that when you call the office, you are calling my personal phone. Not an answering service. Not a receptionist.
I am experienced, and my approach is to be direct. I will challenge you in areas where you struggle.
As a Licensed Clinical Alcohol and Drug Counselor (LCADC), I treat a variety of addiction issues. It takes great courage to begin recovery from addictions. I am also a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT). I am the only male CSAT credentialed therapist in the Tri-State area.
Issues addressed with clients include but are not limited to:
- Relationship difficulties
- Assertiveness and communication skills
- Relapse prevention
- Sexual and Relationship addiction and recovery
- SEP Somatic Experiencing Practitioner. A therapeutic approach for the healing of trauma and regulation of our nervous system.
SEP Somatic Experience Therapy
A treatment approach for the healing of various types of trauma (physical, emotional, sexual, motor vehicle accident, surgeries, near death experiences ect.) through the regulation of our nervous system in which the trauma is stored. This may take the form of fight/flight/freeze physiological responses to stimuli, or “triggers” in our environment that our body interprets as a “threat” of some kind. A person may not even be aware of, or remember the trauma. A “telling of their story” isn’t necessarily required to effectively address the trauma that is trapped or stored in their nervous system. I am one of the few, SEP Somatic Experiencing Practitioners, in the area that has completed the nine week training and necessary supervision and experience to achieve this credential.
I utilized many different theoretical approaches including:
- Grief counseling
- CBT Cognitive Behavior Therapy
- DBT Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
- Client Centered
- Solution Focused
