About me

With 10+ yrs. as a licensed therapist and 15+ yrs. working in the human services field, I have assisted many individuals, couples, and families through life’s challenges. I have extensive experience working in a variety of settings. Settings have included private practice, non-profit organizations, in-home therapy, therapeutic group homes, and juvenile & adult detention centers. In each setting, I’ve assisted clients through life’s positions that are not planned on being in, and yet find ourselves in.

I believe in a holistic approach to wellness in which a healthy mind, body, and soul lead to a happier, more fulfilling life. I look to strengthen the core of each individual and couple to be able to strive, not just survive, through difficult moments. I provide tools and resources for short-term and long-term growth. The hardest and yet one of the more alleviating steps a client can take is the first step to reach out. As a partner in the therapeutic process, I meet each session with support and commitment.

I feel safe and seen, something I’ve not had much luck with other councelers. I really appreciate his expertise and advice!

Ian listens and always ask the right questions to help me understand better on what I am looking for. Every session we recap what we spoke about previously and always build on it. He always sends material for me to look at or for me to use for my relationship with my partner. Never not answers me back when I text him, always there when I need him. Highly recommended!!!!
