I study how deep transformation happens, then help others change. As a therapist and coach I help individuals and couples discover powerful growth. As an entrepreneur I bring that transformation to life in other ways.
From 2015-2019, I co-founded and worked as the Chief Product Officer a leading online counseling & coaching platform and incredible community called rTribe, which has since been acquired. The organization has changed directions since I left and no longer focus on helping addicts, but they're doing their own work in their own way.
The primary purpose of my work is to answer the question: “How can we become wise?”
I do this through Wisecraft.
I do this through Counseling.
Superficiality is one of the curses of our age. Loneliness is rampant. Divorce and dissatisfied marriages are common. And everything from pornography to technology distracts and destroys deep connection.
One of the ways I answer this question is through individual and group counseling and coaching. Individual treatment has proven effective in working with depression, loneliness, addiction, and conflict with spouses.
I have spent more than my share of ten thousand hours over the past 15 years doing a combination of psychotherapy, spiritual direction, coaching, and deeply studying the best I can find of psychology and spirituality. Yet formal study can only take me so far. I believe that in order to help others experience deep growth I must start with myself first, so my first goal is to be on a lifelong journey of transformation. My personal values are to live an authentic life of healthy intimacy, simplicity, serenity, creativity, generosity, and courage.
I love (and at times hate!) writing, creating, trail running, and working out especially with kettlebells. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Colorado, Arizona, and Nevada (where I currently live), have an Addiction Studies Certificate, and a Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy from Western Seminary in San Jose, CA. I also got most of a Masters of Divinity (64 units completed) before dropping out to start my own recovery, and then beginning to study psychology. That 'failure' was key to me becoming who I am today.
