If you are here, one of two things is true

One possibility is that your relationships are fine. Yet, you recognize they can always be improving and growing.

Another possibility is that you are hurting. Your relationships are hurting. You may feel hopeless because of endless conflict. You may feel confused, misunderstood, or unheard because of poor communication. Or you may feel alone because of lack of connection.

If either of those is true of you, I can help. I exist to educate, equip, and empower people for great relationships. I do this in three ways:

Some things you’ll find here

Education – this site has a lot of free information and ideas about common challenges in relationships. Click here to start learning.

Equipment – free tools and resources (checklists, worksheets, etcetera) to help you take action on the ideas discussed on the blog.

Empowerment – We all want great relationships. We are all capable of great relationships. Great relationships take work, and work takes energy and power. My goal is to provide that energy, confidence, and belief that you can have great relationships. If the education and equipment on this site aren’t enough, maybe we should work together.

My Story

I married Skylar in 2008. In 2010 and 2011 we started having problems with conflict, communication, and lack of connection. We started seeing a counselor, who helped us realize that we both had a lot of growing up to do. That experience was life changing for me. It played a major role in my choice to become a counselor. Being a counselor allows me to pay forward the help that I received. I have been incredibly blessed, and I have a duty to bless others.

I started seeing clients in 2014, while I was still a student at Western Seminary. I graduated from Western with my Master of Arts in Counseling in 2016, and soon after received recognition as a Nationally Certified Counselor, and Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate in Washington State.
