My Approach to Helping
Often people first meet me when they are feeling down, stressed out, or struggling with relationships in life. Sometimes things aren’t going well at work or it seems too hard to keep going this way. Many times, family or friends have recommended that a person “get help” for a problem or difficulty.
Even when clients struggle to believe they can make it, I believe they can and often have enough faith for the both of us. Feel free to lean on my optimism because I am confident in the journey we will travel. After validating the place people find themselves, I invite them to take the steps necessary to grow, and gently hold them accountable to their goals.
I realize how difficult family relationships can be as well as how rewarding they are. I have a passion for being a husband and dad, which carries forward to the connection with my clients. I appreciate the opportunity I have to help couples and families grow and develop the relationships they want.
When I’m not in the office, I enjoy time with my wife and kids, music, and camping.
