I work with those who have experienced trauma and hardships in life and are looking for a way back to a better life. I have a passion for working with men who want more out of life in terms of career, finances, and relationships. Are you stuck and ready to manifest better experiences in your life? Let's get to work after resolving core problem areas and getting you to a life you can be proud of.

I am a certified provider for Cognitive-Processing Therapy (CPT) which is a specific therapy that has been shown to be successful in treating individuals with trauma or Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. I also have advanced training in depression, anxiety, and men's issues; including working both with couples and individual on romantic and relationship concerns, especially related to pre-marital therapy.
