Kind Words From My Patients

A Glimpse Into My Journey

My journey towards healing, self-discovery, and empowerment commenced at the age of fourteen, sparked by a back injury involving two herniated discs. Initially focused on physical healing, this journey expanded to encompass all aspects of my life. My introduction to yoga before undergoing back surgery that same year opened my eyes to the holistic and spiritual benefits of addressing not just physical pain, but the entire person. This holistic perspective, rooted in spirituality, has remained the cornerstone of my personal life and professional practice.

Upon entering college, intimate relationships became a significant facet of my life. Challenges in these relationships mirrored unresolved issues from my family of origin, prompting me to seek new skills and maturity to foster the healthy relationships I desired. I recognized that the pivotal relationship to establish was the one with myself.

My exploration led me to delve into my family history and dynamics, uncovering intergenerational patterns—both functional and dysfunctional—that influenced me. I realized that these patterns were deeply ingrained in my body, mind, and heart from an early age, often operating outside my awareness until personal pain brought them to light. With guidance from skilled therapists and teachers, I embraced the discomfort of making these patterns conscious, granting me the power of conscious choice over unconscious family and self-defeating patterns. This marked the beginning of true, life-affirming choices.

My relationship with my wife, Ashley, and our daughter remains a source of ongoing growth, self-discovery, and integration, offering ever-new opportunities to discover and embody my true self within constant changes of everyday life.

I'm deeply grateful for my life's journey, my mentors, therapists, and the meaningful relationships that have shaped my path. Working with individuals like you and having the privilege of supporting your therapeutic journey brings me immense joy and fulfillment.

If you're contemplating working with me, my sole focus and intent are to offer positive support and assistance in addressing any challenges you or your family may be facing. I believe that the issues bringing you to therapy can catalyze growth in all aspects of your life.
