Once upon a time, I didn’t know who I was, and that made me depressed, overwhelmed and insecure. The problem was, I was also pretty functional. I could almost make it through this life - going to work, paying my bills, dining out.
Thankfully, I lost my patience.
If you’re curious or confused or losing your patience, let’s talk. I have fancy theories and I’ve earned my letters - but I’m helpful because I love to be with people as they meet themselves. Wisdom is born when we notice and welcome all parts of ourselves - the angry parts, the frightened parts, the joyful parts. So when you are ready to understand yourself more deeply, it would be my privilege to help you explore!
Before finding my life's work as a clinical therapist, I spent 10 challenging years as an IT Project Manager. My transformation began in 2005, when I joined the Peace Corps and then traveled overland through the Middle East and Africa with my wife. Read more about my journey here.
I am an EMDR therapist, a Certified Hakomi Therapist, Licensed Professional Counselor, Licensed Addictions Counselor and graduated summa cum laude from Regis University with a Masters in Counseling Psychology in 2014. Before starting my private practice, I served as a clinical therapist in the Jefferson County Jail.

I have been studying Buddhadharma and practicing meditation since 2010. My sincere aspiration is to walk the path of the Bodhisattva. Holding this view helps me be more clear-minded and open-hearted during our time together
