We all have the potential to create a meaningful life in the face of both joyful and painful circumstances. It is my hope that our time together will allow you to more fully embrace a sense of wonder about the possibilities for your own life, as you discover new paths towards wholeness.

In supporting individuals as they navigate life’s challenges, I have come to realize the importance of authentic relationships. To this end, I seek to offer a safe and compassionate space in which your story can unfold.  It is within this context, that I believe you will be able to gain new insights, as well as reconnect with aspects of yourself that may have been forgotten or become blocked.

I have been practicing different forms o mindfulness since 1999. As one of my passions, I always welcome the opportunity to share these practices with others. I have found that integrating mindfulness-based skills with existential, transpersonal, and somatic/body-centered approaches can be very healing and transformative.

Since 2002, I have had the opportunity to provide counseling to adolescents in a wilderness therapy program, incarcerated individuals in a drug and alcohol program, homeless Veterans in a transitional housing program, and Veterans and military families in a community mental health setting.

Outside of my counseling practice, I enjoy running, writing, and traveling. Having moved with my wife, from the US to Berlin has allowed me to combine all three: I get to explore the city during my daily runs, and the inspiration I get along the way becomes part of the stories I write each morning.
