Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you?
Simply put, my business is helping others. I learned long ago the positive difference I could make in a child’s life when I volunteered in a classroom. Since that realization, I’ve dedicated my professional career to making a difference in people’s lives.
What life accomplishments are you most proud of?
Being a good father. My children mean so much to me, and the happiness and joy they bring me makes the hard work worth it.
Who is your role model in business or in life, and why?
My role models are my parents. They have shown me love and support that I wish every child could experience. They also provide a wonderful example of what makes a marriage work; they’ll be celebrating their 42nd anniversary soon.
Where do you go when the going gets tough?
I go to my wife. The support and guidance she has given me is priceless. She is someone I can count on to be honest, even when honesty may be hard to hear, and supportive to whatever decision I make. Her strength and determination inspire me to be my best.
What’s your biggest job perk?
Knowing that I made a positive difference in someone’s life. Whether it be helping a couple through marital difficulties, helping a person work through depression, or assisting a child in managing their anger. Helping others brings a satisfaction that makes a difficult job worth it.
And finally, customer service is…?
Customer service in therapy is helping a family or individual in identifying a goal they would like to accomplish and how to best meet that goal. Therapy is providing the vehicle for that person to make that positive change in their life.
