About Me

As a teen and young adult I was inspired and captivated by motivational speakers such as Tony Robbins, Zig Ziglar and Jack Canfield. I was intrigued by their messages and ability to change the thinking of their listeners. However, after realizing that the effects of positive thinking were limited and short-lasting when underling trauma and individual differences were not addressed, I continued to search for more. This search led me to explore and learn about many modalities of personal improvement and healing. Today, my practice focuses on IFS, Internal Family Systems therapy. This approach is   interactive, warm, and accepting of all the aspects of ourselves. Surprisingly, even the unhelpful aspect of our though and behaviors do have a desire to help us they may just not know how. Internal Family Systems provides a framework for support and hold a safe, non-judgmental space for individuals and couples. When people are heard and respected, they can listen to  their inner wisdom and grow innate healing ability. It brings me joy to see my clients reconnecting with life and recapturing forgotten dreams. Being a supportive and caring sounding board for my clients has led to my clients feeling more grounded and less triggered by echoes of part traumas. When I am not working, I enjoy the company of my wife and children, hiking and swimming in nature and studying religious texts.
