Welcome!

 

I'm an individual, relational, and family therapist in Fort Collins CO. Since I was a young boy, my passion has been understanding how we evolved, and specifically how human behavior has changed over time, which is why I love working with clients from all walks of life. I view therapy as an opportunity for people to explore themselves, and to free themselves from feeling stuck, alone, and confused. If you seek motivation, support, or some tools to become your ideal self, I would be humbled to join and support you along your journey. We all struggle to adapt sometimes, whether it's in a new or long-term relationship, the workplace, family challenges, or a temporary burden in your path. My purpose is to work with you to determine the ideal plan that works with your values and goals in a motivated and compassionate manner to ensure growth, healing, and success! To learn more about me and my approach to therapy

I love working with youth and adolescents who are either being raised by a single parent or who may have a very distant parent that they long for connection with. Additionally, I am fascinated by my work with clients who identify with an alternative lifestyle or sexuality as they are truly brave in their pursuit of creating a life that is authentic with their authentic self. As a military veteran, I have great honor and pride in working with my fellow soldiers, airmen, marines, & sailors. Weather it entails supporting them & their families while they traverse the military lifestyle or to help them adapt to the civilian lifestyle by finding new purpose and meaning. At the end of the day I feel my purpose is to   

be a bridge for my clients.

I bring a unique style of therapy based on my ability to be honest and direct with clients as I have seen that this approach is appreciated by many and helps bring clarity to those I work with as they have been stuck due to their inability to own that within them that needs to be transformed. By striving to meet my clients where they are with acceptance, curiosity, and love, I believe my clients will find that they can feel safe to explore those parts of themselves that they normally keep locked away as they fear that society may label them as being "not normal." Please give me a call to see if I will be the right person to join you on your journey.
