I am originally from the East Coast and grew up with parents who were in ministry as Salvation Army officers running drug/alcohol rehab centers. Their work moved us around to several states before settling in Pennsylvania where, after college and graduate school, I worked as a Human Resources Professional in various positions around Philadelphia. I felt God calling me to change my career and location and moved to Southern California to attend Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena and pursue a Marriage and Family Therapy degree. I then went on to fulfill all requirements to earn my state license as both a Marriage and Family Therapist and Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor. I also earned my CSAT (Certified Sex Addiction Therapist) by completing the requirements for this certification through IITAP, the International Institute for Trauma and Addiction Professionals. My wife and I now reside in the Conejo Valley where I have my private practice in Westlake Village and see clients (adults 18 and above and couples) both in person and through video sessions. I encourage potential clients to contact me for an introductory consultation call where I can hear more about their situation and provide an opportunity to ask any questions about my approach and how we may collaborate to work together.
