I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over a decade of clinical experience in the assessment and treatment of individuals and couples. 

I specialize in working with couples who are dedicated to reclaiming the love, trust and commitment that once served as the foundation to their relationship. I am trained in Gottman Method Couples Therapy Level 1, 2, and 3 and I am a certified PREPARE/ENRICH Facilitator.  

I use research-based methods such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Internal Family Systems (IFS), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), when working with individuals.  

I love what I do because the joint work that I participate in with each couple impacts how they live their lives in meaningful ways. This is both exciting and inspiring. 

I am also a husband to a loving and supportive wife and the father of a beautiful and tenacious young girl. I earned my undergraduate degree in Religious Studies with a minor in Psychology; a Master’s of Science degree in Counseling, both from California State University, Fullerton (CSUF). I am licensed with the California Board of Behavioral Sciences as a Marriage and Family Therapist and also a member of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (CAMFT).
