Change requires personal commitment and courage and the encouragement and support of others.

My perspective on the therapeutic process is that it is a collaboration between client and therapist.  Everyone is faced with personal challenges that often seem too large to overcome. When those issues begin to impact our relationships, jobs, or school then it is time to face the thing that is causing the imbalance. As a therapist, I owe my clients respect, unconditional positive regard, and a safe place to work on change.

On a personal note, I received my bachelor’s degree in psychology from Cal State San Marcos and my master’s degree from USC. My wife and I recently celebrated our 32 anniversary and we have four children, 13 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren. I was born in So Cal and have lived in Temecula since 1995.

Research has established a positive correlation between personal faith and better life outcomes. A person’s spiritual life can be a strong anchor to help with change and growth. My spiritual foundation is as a Christian and I have been a part of a pastoral staff where I provided faith-based counseling for church members. I respect a person’s genuine faith regardless of what that looks like and I am able to provide counseling to clients from all faiths or denominations.
