I have spent thousands of hours counseling individuals, couples, and families over the past 14 years. I dedicated the first half of my counseling career to serving in community mental health clinics where I worked alongside the marginalized and severely mentally ill. In other words, I have seen it all.
I have witnessed the dark recesses of the human mind -- too dark for most of us to think about -- as well as the beautiful moments of overcoming extreme challenges and seeing authentic change and growth.
All of us are on a journey of healing and growth. One of those sentinel healing events occurred in my life with a big shift in my career. I attended the University of Southern Mississippi where I received a bachelor's degree in Banking and Finance. At 26 years old I wasn't living up to my potential as an accountant and I wasn't happy. After a year of soul searching I decided to leave accounting for a career in psychology. Graduating with honors from The Seattle School of Theology & Psychology was the beginning of this new journey for me.
I have been trained in the use of the ENNEAGRAM personality assessment and find it extremely helpful when working with clients. I am a TYPE EIGHT. Find out more about the Enneagram and take a free test HERE.
My Myers-Briggs is INFJ.
I have written a novel about a man searching for his authentic self in the midst of expectations of his friends and family, bouts of loneliness, and coming to terms with wounds from his past. It is titled, The Man You Script, and you can find out more about the book HERE.
I also make art from found objects. Read more about my art HERE.
