Background 

I grew up in a ministry family as a pastor’s kid and previously served as a law enforcement officer and in the military. While serving as a patrol deputy I experienced life and death situations—seeing both the best and worst of the human condition. As I progressed in my career I noticed that most of the situations I responded to could have been prevented through alternative means such as therapy. This included both the problems within the different homes and the aftereffects of experiencing traumatic events. I felt called by God to specifically work with individuals and families that have experienced traumatic life events and ongoing relational issues. My experience as a former law enforcement officer and in the army gives me a unique advantage of being able to help first responders, military personnel, and their families during difficult times from a place of understanding. My upbringing as a pastor’s kid and background in ministry also gives me a unique perspective to assist ministry families. I am married with two young children and we are members of a local church.

 

I look forward to working and walking alongside you during this process and assisting you in achieving your goals.

 

Passions

Assisting individuals, couples and families through the difficult challenges in life from an integrative approach with a Biblical foundation. As a former law enforcement officer, I have a passion for assisting first responders, military personnel, veterans, and their families that are experiencing difficulty due to traumatic experiences. I have a passion for assisting the individual and their family as they walk through these difficult experiences and learn ways to effectively and adequately handle them while living a vibrant life.
