I am (before anything else) a child of the Most High God. I believe my purpose in life is to help bear the burdens of my brothers and sisters in Christ. I am a Cognitive-Behavioral therapist whose approach is firmly rooted in the foundation of Scripture. I have been practicing since 2009 and have extensive experience working with adults on a wide range of concerns, though I am especially interested in working with couples and individuals struggling with spiritual issues.
I live in Battle Creek with my wife Allison and daughters Kara and Natalie. I am blessed to have them in my life. I enjoy college sports, videogames, listening to music, board and card games, and spending time in nature.
As someone who has received an abundance of grace and forgiveness from my heavenly Father, I provide effective counsel in a safe and confidential space free of judgment. I consider it a privilege to come alongside you, whatever your circumstances, and offer hope, encouragement, or accountability where needed. If you are struggling, let me encourage you to schedule an appointment today.
