Our Interns

At Life Discovery Counseling Services, we have Counselors and Interns on staff. Interns are completing their coursework and internship, gaining skill at integrating their education with practical experience. They are highly skilled and continue in regular supervision with our Clinical Directors until they earn their Master’s degree in Counseling or Psychotherapy.

Graduate counseling interns are completing their Master’s degree and learning how to best hone their skills, so they are not as experienced as our Counselors and also cannot accept insurance. However, they are naturally gifted, highly trained, learning rapidly through weekly supervision, and are still able to provide the services you’re looking for from an effective counselor but at a lower cost. For more information, please see our Interns’ Fees.

Counseling Intern

Westside

Though I am still a student about halfway through coursework toward a Masters in Counseling, I have almost 25 years experience caring for people while serving on staff at non-profits and churches. I have pastoral counseling experience working with individuals, couples, families, and groups on a variety of issues, including depression, anxiety, survival of physical and/or sexual abuse, marital concerns, life transitions, grief over loss, parenting challenges, and spiritual concerns. My approach explores how cognition (one’s thoughts and beliefs), affect (one’s emotions and desires), and narrative (one’s story and its meaning) impact behavior. I view counseling as a collaborative effort in helping persons recognize strengths, identify needs, understand conflicts, discover new options, set growth goals, and make informed choices. While I operate from a Christian worldview and enjoy helping people connect with God, out of care and respect I do not impose my beliefs or opinions onto clients.

When I’m not working, you’ll generally find me enjoying our beautiful state hiking, mountain biking, snowshoeing, golfing or going for a long walk with my beautiful wife of 29 years.
