About Me

I'm a Licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist and member of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT). I've worked in a residential treatment center for youth with sexual behavior problems, a private practice, a university clinic, a trauma-focused children's agency, and a community homeless shelter.

My studies started with a degree from Brigham Young University (BYU) in Middle Eastern Studies and Arabic, where I explored the rich roots of the region, the history and beliefs of its religions, and the modern conflicts in the area (and also taught yoga to the university faculty on the side). I lived in Jordan while working for a government translation agency, then completed an intensive Arabic program and worked in a local bakery. I also debated internationally with BYU's Arabic debate team in Qatar. After examining some government jobs, I decided instead to become a therapist and completed a Master's in Family Therapy.

My professional interests include systemic theories of human change, the role of agency or control in change, and hypnosis as a medium for altering relationships both inward and outward.

Outside of therapy, I love to read, row, and eat great food with my beautiful wife and kids.
