Reaching out for support when dealing with difficult obstacles in life is one of the most daring steps a person can take. I am grateful and blessed to be able to help individuals on that journey of self-discovery, recovery, healing, and restoration. It’s an exciting adventure that can bring hope and safety to those who embark on it. 

While pursuing my education to become a therapist at Grand Canyon University, I worked as a behavior coach providing in-home services to families with children who struggle with various behavioral issues. After finishing my master’s degree in Professional Counseling I transitioned into working as a full time therapist at Family Strategies. My goal as a therapist is to help individuals reduce shame, create long-lasting healthy habits, experience lifelong healing, and construct meaningful connections with family and friends. I am currently a CSAT (certified sex addiction therapist) candidate through the International Institute of Trauma and Addiction Professionals (IITAP).

When I’m not working, I love spending time with my wife and children. Together we enjoy trips to Disneyland, spending time with friends and family, watching movies, and chasing around our two young children. Along with that I am very passionate about superheroes and host a podcast discussing the inspiring themes of superhero films.
