At the of age 18, the book The Road Less Traveled began my fascination with the human soul - and at age 24, after an encounter with God while on retreat, it exploded into a committed passion. With my own story filled with wounds and the unmet need for someone to show me the way through the pain, this new passion led me to read, study, and train voraciously in areas I came to understand as "depth psychology", "inner healing", "discipleship", "spiritual formation", "spiritual direction", "biblical counseling", and "spiritual rescue".
I perceive the over-arching work of Counseling to be the identification of what I call "Discrepancy" (the gap between our current being and circumstance and God's loving intention for us), and then discovering, together, how Truth (a construct of the Triune God and Scripture) meets our needs and desires for healing, vision, hope, and justice in our lives.
My professional career has spanned adolescent to adult populations conducting Individual, PreMarital, Marital, Family, Employee Assistance Program, and Crisis forms of Counseling across residential foster care, community mental health, and Biblical counseling settings. In August 2013, I entered private practice; and since then, many of my Clients have completed their Counseling work and chosen to transition into a Spiritiual Formation/Discipleship relationship with me. Preceding my professional counseling career, I was a Camp Counselor, Big Brother, worked in Kairos Prison Ministry, served on Tres Dias Retreat Teams for the State of Maine, was an Adult and Teen Sunday School Teacher, and a Sunday School Superintendent. I also have experience as a Worship Leader, both in laity and church-staff positions.
I was born and raised in Central Pennsylvania, graduated Valedictorian, graduated Magna Cum Laude from Berklee College of Music in Boston with a degree in Music Production and Engineering, and graduated from Liberty University with High Distinction Honors. After schooling in Boston, I lived ten years in Maine while working in the upper echelons of the recording industry; but since 2003, I have gladly called North Carolina home!
I have been married for 25 years and have three children: two girls and a boy, whom we homeschooled K-12. My eldest Daughter (21) graduated from Fire and Fragrance Discipleship Training School and Revival and Reformation Discipleship Bible School, both through Youth With A Mission's (YWAM), Kona, Hawaii base at the University of Nations. My next eldest Daughter (19) turned down acceptance to UNC School of Arts to pursue deeper intimacy with God; attended and graduated from both YWAM's Boston-based Creative Arts Discipleship Training School (which included a three-month National Tour presenting the Gospel using dramatic and fine arts) and YWAM's Discipleship Bible School - and in JAN 2022, joined the staff of YWAM Boston after experiencing a call to full-time misssions in America. My Son (17) is a Certificate of Excellence recipient from Summit Ministries Christian Leadership, Apologetics, and Worldview Studies Program; studies Jiu Jitsu, works, self-direct home-schools, and is dual-enrolled in college.
I look forward to working with you!

After experiencing my own heartache and brokenness in life, I had nowhere to turn but to God - and He met me with comfort, love, and healing. It was during that season I felt God call me to Counseling as a profession. I honestly can’t imagine doing anything else! I truly LOVE what I do!
I feel most passionate about Marital and PreMarital Counseling; I enjoy working with Couples to strengthen and restore their relationship to find true joy and love in their marriage - marriage and family are among God's greatest gifts and can be enjoyed to their fullest!
I also counsel individuals in areas such as (but not limited to) Depression, Anxiety, Life-transitions, and Trauma. I consider God to be the ultimate counselor, and therefore, use a Christ-centered, Biblical approach in my work with clients.
Jesus tells us that our lives will be filled with trouble, and His life was no exception. Even though life isn’t easy, we have hope in Jesus; He may not always remove our problems, but He will help us grow through the problems and grow closer to Him. My desire is to be as Christ - a clear voice of reason, hope, love, and wisdom. Jesus said, “I have told you these things, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have trouble. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” Even in the midst of our brokenness there is the promise that the Lord will not abandon us; we know He will walk with us through our suffering. I try to walk beside my Clients just as the Lord does, praying that my clients can feel God’s love shine through me and come to see themselves through the eyes of the Lord!
As serious struggles and challenges of life come our way, it is not uncommon to get stuck in unproductive cycles, unpleasant emotions, or crippling hardships. As a Christian counselor, I recognize these debilitating states and will work to strengthen you, to see things you may not see, to have you try things you may not have tried, and to encourage you in times requiring long-suffering…
I am a Colorado native who moved to the beautiful state of North Carolina three years ago. In my free time I enjoy hiking, going to the beach, and trying new food with my husband. I also enjoy being outside and taking walks – time that allows me to reflect, pray, and draw closer to God.
I look forward to hearing from you!

"My dream of counseling began years ago as I led a church small group. I loved the close relationships we all formed as we helped each other apply God’s transformational wisdom to the challenges of daily life".
Where in the sacred story of your life do you find yourself today?
If this season feels overwhelming, heartbreaking, stagnant, or confusing, there is hope in endless abundance for you. It is my privilege to help you discover that hope within a safe counseling relationship. Wherever you are in your story, there is hope to be found in God’s healing and wisdom… and I look forward to joining you in this chapter!
I view counseling as a collaborative process in which we work to find God’s peace and direction within the story he is telling in your life. I use an integrated, biblically-based approach to counseling, because our problems often have their roots in the spiritual, physical, psychological, and social areas of life. My aim for every therapeutic interaction is not merely to treat the symptoms, but to provide heart-level soul care. My areas of interest include, but are not limited to, depression, anxiety, anger, guilt/shame, spiritual formation, forgiveness issues, and marital/family issues.
I am a North Carolina native, husband to a gifted Spanish teacher, and father of two brilliant and adorable kids. I have had several careers before my call to counseling, including professional musician, banker, and real estate agent; each has granted me invaluable experience and perspective that help me relate to a variety of people. I enjoy an eclectic list of hobbies, including writing, painting, gardening, and playing saxophone.
I look forward to meeting with you!

“I carry hope that people can adopt new names
and build new stories that bloom from their ashes”
Going through various trials and battles with grief has also shaped how I relate to others who have also faced the troubles of life that are inevitable, and are the result of living in a fallen world. I have learned there are always things to be thankful for, even amid adversity and disappointment; I look forward to helping you find healing and teaching you how to obtain a mindset of thankfulness, too!
I aim to help every client realize that they are an individual created by God, first and foremost. I start with a blank-slate perspective: people are not simply a result of their experiences or mistakes – though these things can influence a person’s personality and functioning, Scripture also teaches that God can produce beauty from ashes (Isaiah 61:3). I believe that people can adopt new names and become new creations in Christ. I strive to lead people to truth from God’s word and present the hope that Jesus offers to every soul. But first, I simply meet them where they are.
I am a North Carolina native, raised in the Triangle area and in the church. I enjoy exploring nature and allowing myself to breathe, letting go of stressors and the distractions of life. Music has always spoken to my heart and been a source of comfort, and painting and growing house plants are therapeutic activities I implement for myself (even counselors must find things they love to do as a form of self-care!).
I have always had the desire to connect with anyone I meet, and the ability to empathize seems to be a grace God granted me out of the gate 😊. I look forward to hearing from you!
