I counsel and support individuals, couples and families who feel stuck in life or who have mental health or marriage issues. Anxiety, depression, addiction and family issues are my main focus. My training in social work, addictions, family therapy and personal experience enables me to help families support each other. Mental health issues have been part of my life and our families. We know from experience what helps us recover.
My book “Picture your Life” helps people to clarify and set achievable goals. This book helps people to focus and deal with issues that have been blocking them.
I am a Canfield Personal Coach working with individuals and executive teams. With my training in counseling and coaching, I can be most effective.
My approach interweaves cognitive therapy, positive psychology, and life planning, to help individuals have a content mind and soul. The synergy between positive psychology and traditional approaches creates stronger results and benefits. I am an interfaith person with a Christian background and on request can provide faith-based counseling, to enable hope.

I am so excited to help people live a life well lived. Many people are just going day to day coping and not feeling well. Here is a person I support who is living a life she wants to be part of. This individual had chronic depression and anxiety for 20 years before I started supporting them.
"Tim’s positive approach is always upbeat. He has truly helped me with my anxiety and depression. His advice has helped me move on with my life. I now have more money and am running my own business. He knows how to connect me to community supports that are free and extremely helpful.”
