Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Relationships are a dominant presence in our lives; we are meant to be relational. The relationships we remember from the past, experience in the present, and anticipate in the future are perhaps the most influential force in shaping who we are. I believe there are three types of relationships that therapy can foster health in - a person's relationship with himself or herself, a person's relationship with other people, and, for people of faith, a person's relationship with God. There is perhaps no better gift that could be received than a healthier relationship in these areas. I certainly enjoy working with many individual clients. However, I have found that change is most effective when families work on relationships together in therapy. I welcome couples, families (including children), blended and co-parenting families, and inter-faith families into therapy to take a courageous step toward something better. I have broad experience in addition to that of a therapist that assists me in my work, including professional experience in elementary education, the music industry, pastoral ministry and counseling, and my personal roles as a husband and father.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Walnut Creek, CA

At the core of many personal issues lie old messages of your sense of worth. Those messages conveyed to you while growing-up that minimized your self-esteem. The journey inward toward your past can often be frightening and disheartening. By slowly revisiting the wounded part of yourself, old repetitive behaviors can cease to exist. A new sense of kindness toward yourself will begin to emerge. Allow me to travel with you to discover what is buried deep inside of your soul, exploring what keeps you from becoming all that you want to be.
