I firmly believe there is no such thing as a “one size fits all” approach to therapy. The therapeutic process is unique and different for each individual and couple. I do, however, have the same goal for each one of my clients and that is to help you and your partner become the best version of yourselves. Therapy is about making changes, but it’s not about changing who you are. It’s about allowing yourself to shine.
My approach utilizes aspects of Emotional Focused Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, and Gottman. Whether working with individuals or couples, I will choose the approach that works best for you. With couples, I focus on rapid de-escalation first, then focus on building and maintaining connection. I should also mention that I am a former standup comic and I love to utilize humor during the therapeutic process.
I received my Master’s in Marriage and Family Counseling from Alliant University. I’m a proud father of a wonderful five-year-old boy. I live in Carlsbad and, in my free time, enjoy skiing, cooking, and cheering on my Packers. I’m excited to begin your journey with you towards your best self.
