I was born and raised in the Philadelphia area, earned my B.A. in Psychology from the University of Richmond (Virginia), and moved to Portland, Oregon in 2001 to pursue a career as a professional musician. Within a few years, I became aware that my true calling was to be a counselor. I then earned my M.S. in Counselor Education from Portland State University, where I focused on couples and family therapy.
Over the past decade, I have helped many individuals and couples create healthy, balanced, and authentic relationships with themselves and others. I have also helped people break the cycle of addiction and develop a sustainable recovery. It is wonderful to help others make profound and sustainable positive changes that affect every aspect of their lives. This brings me great satisfaction and meaning in my life. I respect and admire my clients for having the courage to look deeply within and choose a better way of living based on their discoveries.
