About Marriage and Family Therapy

Perhaps you wonder why you keep repeating the same patterns in your relationship, career, and life choices. You may feel you’re “going through the motions,” and success – as you define it – continues to elude you. Maybe you notice a sense of fear, stress, anxiety, or depression. Feeling stuck is a common, human experience. Self-sabotaging tactics or traumatic experiences can make anyone feel like they’re on the sidelines of life instead of being fully “on their game.” Even the strongest among us still need support.

Counseling is not a career but my passion – a calling to be a bridge for clients who desire to grow into the best version of themselves. I provide you with a confidential, emotionally safe space of genuine human contact, establishing a collaborative, therapeutic framework that honors your values and unique voice. My approach couples strengths- and evidence-based psychotherapy/counseling, helping you learn more about the way you feel, and provides relational tools and strategies. Our work can empower you to think and act in more emotionally healthy ways that foster a sense of resilience, hope, and faith that you can live the personal and professional life that you desire and deserve.

As a father, husband, Fortune 100 senior executive, former first responder, and executive coach and having grown up on Chicago’s tough South Side, I bring a broad, diverse, human dynamics experience in a supportive counseling environment including individual, couples, family, and group therapy, that can address:

Stress management and depression
Men and women’s relationship dynamics
Marital, dating, and family relationship issues
Men’s life challenges
Emotional divorce/Divorce recovery
Corporate executive public and private life alignment and balance challenges
Professional and collegiate athlete life strategies
Contact me for a brief consultation to see if we are a good fit to achieve your life, work, or relationship goals. I look forward to understanding your life story to see if we can “team up” on your path of personal discovery.
