Psychotherapist, Police Officer, Author, & National Speaker 

Accepting BCBS PPO & Self-pay clients at $30 - $50 a session

As a police officer of over 21 years, I have seen it all!

Law enforcement has been a rich and rewarding career and it is a job I love, but as I get closer to retirement I am now transitioning into my second career as an individual and couples talk therapist.  I obtained my master of social work from Aurora University in 2003 and began a career in mental health back in 1990 working in residential and psychiatric hospital settings.  I believe my vast and diverse experience gives me the tools and insight needed to help my clients through their most difficult seasons of life.

​​​​I work with adolescents, adults, and couples specializing in these areas:
  • Relationship Conflicts
  • Long term and situational depression
  • Bipolar
  • Anxiety/OCD
  • Trauma/Abuse
  • Compassion Fatigue/Job Burnout
  • First Responders
  • School Refusal and Anxiety
  • Phobias and Social Anxiety
  • Chronic Mental Illness
  • Impulse Disorders
  • Personality Disorders
  • Codependancy 
  • Anger Management
  • Short-Term Therapy

I am a constant researcher combining traditional and current modalities into my treatment style.  I am well versed in DBT, CBT, Solution-focused, Psychodynamic, ACT, Client Centered, and The Gottman Method.

My wife, Althea Olson who I work together with at Fox Bend Counseling, and I have been married for 23 years.  We co-author several monthly columns for law enforcement publications and travel the country as keynote speakers.  

I practice at 2 locations:
