Welcome! We hope you will find support, recovery, and healing in our website and through our practice.

A little bit about some of my certifications and specialties: I’m a Certified Clinical Partner Specialist Supervisor, a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist Supervisor, and I’m EMDR trained. I also have a Masters Degree in Theology from Fuller Theological Seminary, and I’m a Christian raised in the church.  Because of this, I can appreciate both the positive and negative impact faith can have on us.  I respect if you do not want to include faith, religion, or spirituality in therapy, but we can always talk about faith if you’re up for it.

I really enjoy collaborating with other professionals, and I’ve co-authored several books: Letters from a Sex Addict: My Life Exposed, Full Disclosure: How to Share the Truth After Sexual Betrayal, Full Disclosure: Seeking Truth After Sexual Betrayal, and Surviving the Holidays: A Holiday Guide for Couples in Recovery after Sexual Betrayal.

In my free time, I enjoy getting out in nature and exploring.  But more than anything, I live for the simple moments of everyday life: Spending quality time with my wife, hanging out with good friends, and playing with my dogs Ripley (a sensitive Corgi) and Edi (a tenacious dachshund).

My passion is to help my clients restore relational, mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual wholeness to their lives.  I understand that it can be overwhelming to begin this process, so my goal is to provide a safe environment where you can grow and heal.
