Andrew is a nationally certified counselor, licensed professional counselor and an EMDRIA-approved consultant and trainer with extensive background in an Existential- Gestalt approach to growth and therapy. Always drawn to forms of therapy that address the entire person—mind, body, emotions, creativity and spirit, Andrew has developed an extremely holistic approach in his work with individuals, couples, families and groups.
Formerly an educator, musician and Peace Corps Volunteer, Andrew has consulted with Corning Incorporated, small businesses and human service agencies, providing stress management and conflict resolution training, as well as workshops and coaching that facilitate personal growth and performance enhancement. He has published peer- reviewed articles and book chapters, as well as his first book, “The Courage to Feel”, and his soon to be released “How Simon Left His Shell: The Courage to Feel for Young People.” Andrew is a highly engaging, interactive therapist and retreat/workshop facilitator whose passion about his work is expressed in his use of music, creative imagination, experiential approaches and humor.
In addition to working with a broad spectrum of therapeutic issues, Andrew has a strong interest in healing from trauma and PTSD, particularly through the use of EMDR. This interest also informs his approach in working with eating disorders and helping couples create and renew their relationship. His passion for an integration of psychotherapy and spirituality is a driving force, whether in individual sessions, workshops or intensive therapeutic retreats.
