“The antidote to exhaustion is not necessarily rest.
The antidote to exhaustion is wholeheartedness.”
- David Whyte
I am a dynamic, process oriented therapist. This means the therapy process will be different based on the needs of each individual client.
I attend to both the content a client brings, and the relationship which develops between the client and myself. Mutual trust, genuineness, and openness are all important foundations for the therapeutic process. Attending to each of these creates an atmosphere from which clients can achieve the personal growth they desire.
I am less concerned with the symptoms a client is experiencing, as I am with the emotions from which they derive. My process is designed to get at the core of whatever challenges a client is facing. This is usually not the fastest way to behavioral change; however, I believe it is necessary for deep and lasting change to occur.

I became a professional counselor in large part due to my own experience as a client. I was deeply transformed during my initial experience in counseling, and I still find the process helpful as I journey into new stages of my life.
I earned my Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Denver Seminary, after which I founded Albatross Counseling. Prior to becoming a counselor, I spent over a decade in the fields of accounting and finance. I also served six years in the Marine Corps.
In addition to my counseling practice, I am proud to own and operate a childcare center called Growing Hearts and Minds. I live In Westminster, CO with my wife and two kids. I enjoy coaching hockey, mountain biking, skiing, and international travel.
It is one of the greatest honors of my life to journey alongside my clients on their path toward healing.
