Resilience Consulting
I like to work with rough characters that are stressed and depressed but are searching for peace and purpose in life. I understand how trauma and addictions affect life and change the way we see and understand the world. I offer faith-based counseling if requested.

I specialize in skills that help prepare people adapt and overcome repeated trauma in the workplace and find freedom from addictions.
I've been a certified Michigan firefighter and medical first responder since 2005. I have been a Critical Incident Stress Debriefer and Emergency Chaplain since 2007. I offer Resilience Training, which includes cognitive-behavioral education and skills for firefighters, police, healthcare providers, and others touched by trauma. In 2012, I was given a Counseling Award from Cornerstone University.
