About Me

Are you struggling with a challenging, intimate, social, family, or work relationship? Is it impacting your self-worth and self-confidence? Are you feeling controlled, belittled, hurt, cheated, afraid, or limited? Are you ready to change the dynamics of the relationship? If so, you might find it helpful to meet with someone who has experienced these feelings and understands how difficult it can be to manage these feelings. Let's begin by identifying your talents and strengths to help you live, laugh, love, and let go of past hurts.
Furthermore, as a veteran, I understand the unique issues military members, retirees, veterans, and their families encounter. I am trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) for trauma and abuse. I also use systemic family therapy for family and marital issues as well.
Whether it's finding self-compassion or diving into the thoughts that seem stuck on repeat, I can help you discover joy, passion, and purpose in your life and foster genuine connections with the people who matter most. Contact me today to schedule your first step toward feeling better.

Written by C.A. on Sep 16, 2021 after counseling with Andrew for 3 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, and intimacy-related issues

Andrew has been a major help to me. He has helped me diagnose and verbalize issues in my life, as well as help me find ways to approach them. Andrew has been nothing short of helpful and insightful. Anyone who has the pleasure of working with him will be able to tell he cares right away.

So far I have only seen Andrew once but with that one session I can already tell that he cares about helping me. He has already helped me and I can really tell the difference from my last therapist and with Andrew. Andrew is the best!

Andrew is the kind of counselor that listens and identifies his client, I guess a better way to put it is he’s seeks first understanding and then derives his approach according to the individual he is assisting! I have found myself highly impressed with our sessions!

Andrew listens with kindness and is able to help me verbalize my concerns. I appreciate his candor and kindness during our sessions.

Andrew has been an excellent therapist to us so far! He really, truly listens and offers helpful productive criticism and ideas for us. It seems like he has even been able to correctly deduce different things just by listening. I would absolutely recommend Andrew to anyone who is wanting to start therapy.

Really caring and lovely to talk to.

I can absolutely recommend Andrew with highest praise to anyone looking for therapy. From the very first session he wanted to know how he could help us, and what our concerns were. So many other 'professionals' dealing with ED have simply talked at us and told us how great they themselves are, and have not been interested in our situation, or what we are experiencing. Andrew is not like that at all. He has been absolutely fantastic for my daughter who has an eating disorder. His manner is calm, and he is proactive with his approach to facilitating positive changes around thinking and habits. We are on the other side of the world to him, but he has always been able to accommodate us time wise. I would recommend Andrew to anyone in a heartbeat.
