Prior to founding Praus Counseling, I served in several corporate and volunteer leadership capacities. Whether leading the Market Intelligence team at EPIS, Inc. or serving as Lieutenant at West Pend Oreille Fire, my service alongside fellow colleagues magnified the importance of the human element. It is from this perspective, of what it means to be human, that led me to establish Praus Counseling. As the owner of Praus Counseling, this vision of what it means to be human is foundational to everything we do.
My primary focus, expertise and experience is working with those who struggle with problematic and maladaptive sexual behavior, sexual addiction, and the accompanying trauma. Additionally, I serve First Responders who struggle with PTSD or other significant trauma. My undergraduate focus was primarily on aberrant and serial offenders and I have experience working with individuals who struggle with a variety of maladaptive and problematic sexual behaviors. My Master of Arts degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling was awarded by Gonzaga University.
I love to spend my free time outdoors. I am passionate about motorcycling, backpacking, rock climbing, swimming, shooting sports and spending time with my wife and 4 children.
