My name is Paul, the owner of NEW Perspectives Christian Counseling. If you are checking this page out, there is a good chance that you or a loved one is seeking some kind of healing. I am glad you are here.
When I started the process of establishing my own practice, I did so with the purpose of helping clients find a new perspective. Therapy, in many ways, is about adopting new perspectives or understandings of the issues that complicate life.
My professional journey has been quite enriching to this point. I spent my first 'big kid' job working on an in-patient, adolescent, mental health treatment unit. I then transitioned into a long career in law enforcement. As you might imagine, this exposed me to many significant experiences. After this career, I worked in the public schools, working mostly in special education and tutoring youth experiencing homelessness. I also coached sports along the way. I then began my career as a therapist, and I love what I do!
I have worked with a wide variety of people. The list of mental health concerns I have encountered in my practice is quite diverse. In addition to the varied mental health struggles, I have also worked with clients from age 3 to 70+.
I work daily with trauma and domestic violence. I have completed over 150 hours of training in the treatment of trauma and abuse. The letters after my name all signify the dedication and preparation that I have committed both time and resources to in effort to better prepare myself to help you. I can assure that there are more letters to come because my commitment to providing relevant trauma therapy will continue until I retire.
DOMESTIC VIOLENCE INTERVENTION GROUPS
I am currently certified by the Wisconsin Batterers Treatment Provider Association (WBTPA) to facilitate abuser intervention groups. I have facilitated and co-facilitated groups since 2015 in Appleton, Oshkosh, Menasha, and Green Bay. I current facilitate this group via video.
This 24-week program is done via Zoom and has offerings on Monday (7:30pm-9pm), Wednesday (5pm-6:30pm) and Saturday (8am-9:30am).
DOMESTIC VIOLENCE VICTIM/SURVIVOR GROUP
I also run a women only, victim/survivor group in-person. Women who are in need for this service can call, text, or email for details.
