Integrity is fundamental to my approach. Just like any relationship, trust is the foundation. I hope you will join me on this journey of healing and change. All honest change begins with telling the truth.
I adapt my counseling approach based on the needs/desires of my clients. I am flexible that way. Whether it is understanding thought or behavior patterns, processing traumatic memories, or gaining deeper insight into self, I am here to help.
My wife, infant daughter, and I recently moved from Henderson, NV to Pleasant Grove, UT. Family and faith mean everything to me. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I find that I can connect well with client's spiritual or religious perspectives, whatever they may be.
I enjoy sports as a way of having fun, getting exercise, and dealing with stress. From soccer and running to basketball and pickleball, I am in! I also enjoy reading inspirational and thought-provoking books.
Professionally, I chose to become a Marriage and Family Therapist because there is nothing more important or more exhilarating than participating in the people transformation process. To see someone more confident and happier than ever before . . . let's just say there is nothing like it.
I gained experience while working at a few agencies including LDS Family Services, Pathways Therapy and Wellness, Harmony Healthcare, and State of Mind. I established a full-time private-practice while in the Las Vegas area. These opportunities were the training grounds I used to develop essential skills, interventions, and knowledge to be an effective therapist today. I am currently the Manager of Counseling at Ensign College, and also meet with a number of personal clients in the evenings and weekends.
I hope you will join me on this journey.
