Good therapy requires liking who your therapist is. Here is a bit about my background…

I received my Masters in Professional Counseling from Texas State University in 2008, and I love being a therapist. I am especially passionate in working with clients who want to be of service to the world. That includes folks wanting to show up for their partners and kids, professionals wanting to lead their companies with integrity, and other therapists and helping professionals getting support for their work.

My lovely wife and I have been married ten years, and we have a beautiful young daughter at home.

My undergraduate degree is Studio Art from the University of California, Santa Cruz. I’m an artist and creator of the comic strip 50 Minute Fix, which is an irreverent and absurdist take on the world of therapy.

I also specialize in helping spiritual aspirants apply their values in everyday life and relationships. I view relational and psychological health as foundational to any spiritual seeker’s path, including my own. My journey has included meditative traditions of Vipassana Buddhism, Christian Centering Prayer, Hatha Yoga, and Chinese martial arts.
