Landon has been with In Balance since 2012 where he completed his Master’s Degree clinical hours at the In Balance IOP, followed by his employment as a therapist at In Balance Academy (IBA). During his time at IBA, Landon has been working on his PhD in Clinical Psychology. Most of Landon’s clinical work has focused on substance abuse, trauma, anxiety, and depression, but he is skilled in treating clients who are experiencing a range of different problems. He has worked in the field of substance abuse and psychology since 2008, starting with his time treating CPS cases, doing in-home family therapy for low-income families with a non-profit organization in Tucson, and working at the Vet Center.
His doctoral clinical hours were spent helping clients deal with individual and family problems using a range of different modalities. Landon’s dissertation and research at the Phoenix VA Hospital focused on assessing PTSD and Depression scales to predict if someone is at risk for suicidality and what the best method of treatment is, then how to apply that treatment to each individual experiencing their symptoms. Landon has treated clients with a range of struggles paired with their substance abuse over the years and has always brought a thoughtful, but straight forward approach that is key in treating individuals and families struggling with substance abuse.
Landon has an extensive background with the military and much of his military career path has been influenced by what he’s experienced in combat and seen during his years in the Army. He enlisted in the United States Army (2003) right out of high school and deployed to Baghdad, Iraq during OIF 1 (2003-2004), with the following years spent stationed in Germany. In 2007, Landon joined the Arizona Army National Guard and commissioned in 2013 through the Arizona Military Academy as an Infantry Officer. He deployed to Afghanistan in 2018-2019 as an Infantry Company Commander and Senior Advising OIC (Officer-in-Charge) while advising Afghan National Army (ANA) leadership in Western Afghanistan. Landon currently continues to serve in the Arizona Army National Guard as an officer.
Landon and his family are Arizona natives and have spent most of their lives here. He has been married to his wife, Kelle, since 2012 and they have 3 kids, Leo, Oliver, and Frances. He enjoys being outdoors and has a love for classic cars.
