My Personal Healing Journey and Mission To Help You Overcome too!
I am a licensed therapist in the state of California with a master’s degree in Counseling. My approach to therapy comes from my training in Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) which means during I work together I prioritize your heartfelt core emotions because they are often the key to healing your old wounds from the past and to feel more happy in life.
Growing up in a family as one of eight children I was often left alone at a young age to tend to my own difficult emotions. Intuitivy I knew I needed someone to talk who cared and had the wherewithall to help but I didnt know where to turn. This eventually inspired me, after years of “seeking”, to pursue my own personal work as a therapy client. This work has helped me heal at a deep level creating a life I now love (although its not without its struggle) with my wife of over 20 years, and my two teenage children.
Natural Curiosity for Psychology
Looking back, I know now I was meant to be a therapist. I have always been fascinated about the psychology and root cause of human behavior. I would see someone act out and think “I wonder what’s driving that behavior? maybe they have a tough homelife or are being bullied”. I am a sensitive soul and have always felt for people’s pain. I spent many of my adult years helping others well before it became my profession.
Self Care and Hobbies
When I’m not working as a therapist, I love spending time with my wife and teenage kids, traveling to national parks and the beautiful wineries up and down the California Coast. I also enjoy playing board games, horseshoes and corn hole with my family and friends, weightlifting and playing half-court basketball with the guys, reading books on psychology and spirituality, and watching Marvel movies with my kids.
