“Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there some day.”
2 Cor. 1: 4: [He] comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.
Philosophy and Therapeutic Approach:
Life can be really hard sometimes, and even though relationships are meant to help us through those hard times, they too can be heavy. I believe that growth and healing in our lives and relationships are the most basic goals of therapy. I also know that growth and healing can require vulnerability, discomfort and courage. I acknowledge that reaching out for help outside of your everyday circle is not easy and just by seeking out this website you are taking a brave step forward. God has blessed each of us with our stories so that we can empathize with others and walk through life together. When I sit with clients I want to understand their story and help them to navigate the varying currents of their lives and relationships.
Expectations of Therapy:
Anyone that comes into therapy has goals for what he or she wants in life, even if they are initially unable to articulate those goals. I want to help my clients understand their goals for our time together and develop a plan to work towards those goals. For some people this process will be relatively quick and for others it will be a longer journey. One of the most important things for me is helping those I work with understand what they will look like once their goals are realized and recognizing when our work is achieved and finished. While we are working together I hope to create a safe space, where we can tackle anything that is creating distress and develop a path to seek relief.
I completed my Masters Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, CA. I was trained as a Practicum student and an intern at Fuller Psychological and Family Services, where I worked with children, adolescent, and adult individuals as well as couples and families, and leading groups for 3 years. I also interned as a school counselor at Hillsides Education Center, which is a therapeutic day school for 3 years. At Hillsides I worked primarily with children and adolescents who struggled to coexist in a public school setting because of a set of emotional, behavioral and psychological issues. Once licensed I worked at Pediatric and Adolescent Psychology Associates, typically with children, adolescents, young adults and families. I have worked with a range of different issues, including: anxiety, depression, technology and pornography dependencies, family and marital distress, problems stemming from ADHD, lack of motivation, absence of direction in life goals, etc.
Prior to graduate school, I was born in Texas, went to undergraduate at Baylor University and worked in youth ministry for my first 4 years after graduation. It was during my time working in youth ministry where I realized that, even though I loved what I was doing I desperately needed more training and equipping. Being able to walk with others through hard stretches of their lives is a calling for all Christians, and I am honored and blessed to be able to do this as a profession.
After working in youth ministry, I moved to Los Angeles where I worked in radio and concert production and then met my wife, getting married almost 10 years ago. I am an avid basketball fan and one of the highlights of every year is attending NBA Summer League and geeking out over all of the past, current and future NBA stars. I probably feel most alive when I am able to play basketball, running up and down the basketball court and getting way-too-out-of-breath in this thin Colorado air. My wife and I also enjoy spending time outside, be it hiking or merely marveling at the majesty of God’s creation. I also love sushi and ice cream just a little too much… but not together, that would just be gross.
