I have worked in community mental health settings providing in home family therapy, church counseling centers, and in private practice.  I believe experiencing healthy and fulfilling relationships with God, self, and others is foundational to mental health and I am passionate about working to bring restoration in all of these areas.  I pull from the best current psychological approaches to working with relationships and trauma as well as inner healing prayer approaches like Elijah House and Transformational Prayer Ministry.

We see people searching desperately for peace of mind, relief from guilt, meaning and purpose to their lives, and loving acceptance. We know that ultimately these things can only be found in God.

In my free time you can find me on one of the many amazing hiking trails in this region, playing tennis, reading, or hanging out with my wife Tiffany and our Springer Spaniel, Jack.

If we relate to people believing that we can categorize them, we will neither identify nor nurture the parts, the vital parts, of the other that transcends category. The enabling relationship always assumes the other is never fully knowable.
— Irvin Yalom
