Are you haunted by the past?

Do you avoid things that trigger troubling memories?

Are you missing out while you do so?

A traumatic experience is one where your well-being, or that of someone else, was threatened or harmed. 

About 60% of men will experience trauma in their lifetime. The effects of trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can impact everything from your sleep, relationships, to your work.

Have you experienced feeling…?


  • Panic
  • Anger
  • Guilt and shame
  • Constantly on alert
  • Disconnected
  • Sad or numb

Do you find yourself…


  • Avoiding things that trigger you
  • Having disturbing dreams
  • Frequently being startled
  • Experiencing troubling, persistent thoughts
  • Never really feeling safe


The effects of trauma itself can make it hard to take that first step to make things better. For more than 10 years, I have been teaching people like you how to overcome the effects of trauma. I specifically focus on combat veterans and men who have experienced other traumas, who want to learn skills to achieve freedom from the grip of trauma.


Imagine what it would be like if you had the tools to effectively deal with your trauma. For some, it has meant being able to hear fireworks going off without experiencing intense anxiety. For others, it meant going to the grocery store whenever they wanted instead of only when no one else is there. Maybe you want to be able to go to your child’s ball games. You can learn the strategies that could make that happen. 

virtual sessions using video conferencing

I am located in Wilmington, NC and I conduct all consultations online using a secure video conferencing system. 

This has been particularly useful to people with PTSD who struggle to go out in general or who have bad days from time to time, making it difficult to meet in person. This allows us to keep making progress so those bad days become fewer and farther between.
