Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist #80886
Certified Sexual Addiction Therapist Candidate

Are you or your loved one wrestling with an addiction? Do you feel trapped by the wounds from your past? Is your marriage on the rocks and you’re fighting to regain emotional security? I am experienced, compassionate and skilled to help you make the changes you’re looking for. I have spent thousands of hours working with people who are in great pain and provide not only empathy and safety but also practical tools and skills to promote healing and recovery.

I have specialized training in working with those who suffer from sexual addiction and work with all other addictions as well. If your marriage is deeply conflicted I will help you to understand and change the relational dynamic that is occurring in your relationship through the use of attachment based therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, and Restoration therapy. The foundation of my work is centered on the power of Christ to bring change and healing to your life. Call today for an initial session to get on the road to healing and wholeness.

From 2004-2008 I lived in Florence, Italy and Amsterdam, The Netherlands working with a Christian mission’s organization. There I initiated and directed a large-scale social justice project called Serve the City which focused on reaching out to the poor and disenfranchised. I am married and have a son.
