I have found joy and fulfillment in life by nurturing and repairing relationships with loved ones. I've personally experienced the transformative power of taming untamed emotions, and I'm passionate about helping others achieve the resulting healing qualities of serenity.

I'm newly remarried seven years after an amicable divorce from the mother of my three adult children (twins through in-vitro fertilization and one through international adoption). I have an undergraduate degree in journalism from the University of Minnesota and a master’s degree in business from Dartmouth College. After a 30-year career in business I'm grateful for the privilege of pursuing work I find meaningful.

I'm a graduate student in Marriage and Family Therapy at Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota. I'm pursuing certification in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), an attachment-based therapeutic approach proven to reduce distress in couple relationships. Some of my clinical areas of interest include premarital counseling, adoption, infertility, parenting challenges, divorce, addiction, anxiety, depression, and trauma. I am LGBTQ+ affirming and use he/him pronouns.

As an intern at the MN Couple Therapy Center I provide therapy under the supervision of Kurt Wical, PhD, LMFT and Carolyn Dehnbostel, MA, LMFT. I provide therapy to couples, individuals (18+), and families at a reduced rate of $30 per hour.
