Tim discovered his purpose as a sophomore in high school: he knew then that he wanted to serve others as a professional counselor. And Tim has been fulfilling that purpose since 1989.
Tim has lived and worked in the Akron/Canton area all his life. He was born and raised in Akron and attended the University of Akron. There he completed his Bachelor of Arts in Psychology degree. He stayed close to home and earned his Master's of Education (M.Ed.) in Counseling and Human Development from Kent State University. He did some post-graduate work, also at Kent, and then embarked on his professional career.
In 1995 Tim was licensed as a Professional Clinical Counselor in the State of Ohio. In 2000 he was granted the supervising counselor credential. Tim has served children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families. He especially enjoys working with college students because, "They can be so genuine. Students challenge convention. That's refreshing. They also seek understanding, not only of themselves, but those around them," he says.
During Tim's years at Kent State Tim dreamed of the day God would lead him to serve on a college campus. His prayers were answered in 2005 when he was selected as director of the Counseling Center at Malone.
"Working on a Christian campus brings a different set of challenges," he says. "There is the challenge of being in the world but not a part of it; of discovering one's purpose as God intended; and balancing God's grace and our own behaviors."
While Tim has worked with a number of counseling concerns, he seems to enjoy helping individuals who are stressed and anxious. He also likes addressing relationship issues with individuals and couples. When Tim is not on campus he serves in a private practice setting, in a small, private Catholic elementary school, and as a supervisor for the River Tree Christian Church lay counseling ministry. For the few hours each week when he is not counseling or supervising, Tim enjoys spending time with his family, watching Seinfeld reruns, or preparing something yummy to eat in the kitchen.
