Being a guy isn’t always easy. Whether you’re an adult and struggling with work or relationships
or a teen trying to make it through middle or high school. I work with teens to help them
communicate their needs and make sense of their world. With parents, I help them to find ways
of communicating and connecting with their child. For adults, I help them to calm their mind and
thoughts and find passion in their life, relationships, and work. I look at each individual from a
holistic perspective so they are able to gain control and understanding of their thoughts and life.  I
work with people from all walks of life and offer a trusting space of acceptance, openness, and

I utilize an interactive and engaged approach to therapy, drawing from mindfulness, cognitive,
and depth theories. Each person is treated in a holistic manner to understand all the aspects that
cause distress to your unique situation. In order to create a plan unique to your situation, I look at
the whole person from past to future, physical, social, and mental health. I utilize theories that
are proven to be most helpful and are special to my own journey. These include: Mindfulness,
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and
Jungian Analytical Depth Psychology. These modalities allow my clients to see improvements
in both physical and mental health, as well as clearing barriers that prevent them from their full
potential, providing long lasting effects.

I hold a Master of Arts degree in Counseling Psychology from Saint Martin’s University College
of Education and Counseling located in Lacey, Washington. I am also a Licensed Professional
Counselor (LPC) and Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor (CADC). My work and education
has provided me with the opportunity to work with clients and groups in multiple settings
including: adults in an outpatient mental health clinic, young adults in a university counseling
center, teens and adults in an inpatient chemical dependency center, and at-risk youth in
residential settings. I utilize these experiences, additional trainings/seminars, courses/texts, my
own personal journey, and my martial arts training to inform my work with clients.

Due to the nature of the therapy relationship, it is important for me to make sure we are a good
fit for each other, this involves parents of teen clients as well. I offer an initial no-cost
consultation session which allows you to visit my office and ask questions about myself and the
process of therapy. I know that finding a therapist can be a difficult task and I want you to know
that I respond to everyone that reaches out to me for help, often within 24 hours.
