I received my degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from St. Cloud State University. I have particular experience with issues related to trauma recovery, sexuality, and healthy sexual expression.
Prior to working in mental health, I served in the military and I have a special interest in helping military veterans and their families.
I usually find it helpful, and the best use of everyone's time and effort, to stay focused on each person's or family's specific goals for change. I find it particularly helpful when we are able to change our own narrative of our lives to reflect our strength, resilience, and personal values.
I enjoy home projects and travelling. My wife and I have teenaged children, so at this point in our lives, our time is often filled with school activities.
