AREAS OF SPECIAL FOCUS
I am a strong believer in the saying “insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result”. This is why I’m committed to assisting in the process of self-discovery, healing and emotional growth. I am motivated to help heal wounds, rebuild trust and intimacy, and resolve conflict in a way that builds not destroys. I draw from my education but also from decades of experiences of burnt bridges and new beginnings but mostly the message of hope.

A SEASONED COUNSELOR
I have experience working with and being in the recovery world, including but not limited to drug, alcohol, pornography and sex addiction, anger and codependency. I facilitated a men’s codependent group for several years. I served as a lay church counselor prior to my formal training, providing counseling for men and married couples. I have worked with children of divorce who were experiencing social, emotional, or behavioral problems, single parents and blended families. My education has helped me but I have sought out additional training to assist individuals, young adults, and couples for various issues such as depression, anxiety, trauma, grief/loss, and conflicts in relationships.
COMMITTED TO MINISTRY
I was raised Lutheran but walked away from God and the church in my early teens, I returned to a relationship with Jesus 20 years ago with a new understanding, commitment and passion and I have been committed ever since. I have been a member and serving in multiple facets of ministry and leadership, including but not limited to Lay counseling, Celebrate Recovery, Single Parent ministry, and Men’s ministry. I have been a small group leader and facilitator for divorce recovery, financial peace, and blended family ministries. After volunteering as security I was hired and have been on staff with a church for 3 years while completing my education.
COMMITTED TO FAMILY
I believe that great marriages and relationships don’t happen by luck or by accident, they are the result of a consistent investment of time, thoughtfulness, forgiveness, respect, and prayer and that any marriage can be saved. My parents were married over 60 years before my father passed; my sister just celebrated 50 years of marriage and my brother over 40. I have had the misfortune to personally witness and experience the trauma of divorce and its rippling effects on children, family, friends and everything it touches. This was a strong motivating factor for me changing careers at this stage in life, to advocate for reconciliation and restoration and mental health awareness and education. I am motivated to help heal wounds, rebuild trust and intimacy, and resolve conflict in a way that builds not destroys. I am a proud father of a wonderful 28-year-old son who is currently serving in the armed forces as a Navy Corpsman/Combat Medic stationed in Hawaii with his wife, who is also serving our country in the US Air Force. I am also a bonus dad to a 7 year old rescue Chow Chow mix named Sadie.
