Happily married with two daughters. I severed 18 honorable years in Navy Medicine and now retired Veteran residing in Middle Tennessee. Extensive background in operational and clinical setting, including mental health care. Tirelessly worked as a Surface Force Independent Duty Corpsman, similar to a mid-level provider such as a Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant.
I created this website as a way not only to help others in dealing with mental health conditions, but to help myself as well. It took me 10 years to admit that I had mental health issues, then another 8 years of slowly accepting treatment. I will not bore you with a long back story of my life. I am here to help, why? Because I know the pain you all go through. For me, providing assistance and care to those in need gives me a sense of accomplishment and reward. Eventually I plan on establishing a Telehealth service where vets (especially those who live remote areas) can reach out, via phone or videoconferencing, to get professional help.
I have applied to attend Fall 2021 master’s program in Clinical Mental Health counseling at Tennessee Technology University.
