Personal Statement

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 Couples Therapy from an Integrative Therapy approach, Family Therapy, Polyamory, Alternative Lifestyles, Pre-Marital Counseling, Sex Therapy, and Individual Therapy around both individual and relationship issues.
