As a systems trained therapist I believe in the power of relationships. My therapeutic approach honors and explores key relationships in a client’s life as they pertain to the problem that the client brings to therapy, and fostering a strong therapeutic alliance, integrating compassionate understanding to create a safe environment to explore client needs.

With over 10-years’ experience in marriage and family therapy, and as a graduate of the University of Louisville, Kent School of Social work, specializing in Marriage and Family Therapy, he is currently serving as a private practitioner working with couples, families, and individual adults, and adolescents. Among his areas of expertise are Intimacy, Couples Therapy from an Integrative Therapy approach, Family Therapy, Polyamory, Alternative Lifestyles, Pre-Marital Counseling, Sex Therapy, Kink, and Individual Therapy around both individual and relationship issues.
