I am a Clinical Fellow in AAMFT and ordained Presbyterian clergy, and I enjoy working with individuals, couples, and families dealing with issues of communication, conflict, anger, forgiveness, building intimacy, family transitions, loss, trauma, and spirituality. I have experience working with couples dealing with sexuality, infidelity and other betrayals of trust, and men struggling with sexual addiction.
