Get support from someone who shares your deeply held beliefs.

If you are looking for a Catholic counselor who loves the Faith as much as you do, you have found me!

For years, I have helped fellow Catholics find relief from emotional and relational problems that interfere with everyday peace and freedom.

I have learned from the best in the field, and have helped countless clients turn their stumbling blocks into stepping stones. It is a joy and a privilege.

Often, people are surprised by their experience in counseling. Why? Because we go straight to the heart of the matter in the first session. Whatever is missing in your life right now, we will find together. Most find it right away. Others take a little more time.

With the guidance of a skilled Catholic therapist, you can go beyond surface level coping to experience lasting change within. With me, you will NOT receive lectures on philosophy or pressure to buy books. Your needs are unique and personal. We draw on God's grace, evidence-based techniques, and the resources of our Faith as needed, to discover your specific path forward.

Looking forward to helping you during this time. Sign up for a meeting using the Schedule Now button below.

Insight Anchors are visuals or other learning tools that are:

Number 01


Simple means easily understood and straightforward. It also describes what is essential underneath complex parts or distinctions. Light is neither wave nor particle, but something more simple.

number 02


We are bombarded with a constant noise of shallow, superficial information. What we need are insights that help us build wisdom and do justice to the vast depth of the mind and heart.

number 03


There are interesting thoughts, and then there are key ideas and strategies that move the needle. I seek to provide insights that are truly helpful for healing and growth.



Memory is the first step in the taxonomy of learning. Insights need to be made memorable to enable the deeper and lasting change we seek.

number 05


Ideally, insights lead to experiences and lasting changes in behavior.

number 06


While knowledge of general principles can be enlightening, We are unique, embodied persons that need to apply insights to our own lives and relationships.
