I returned to Kansas City to raise a family and revisited a dream I had to help people. This led to enrolling and completing a Master's degree from Friends University in Marriage and Family Therapy. My hope is to help individuals, couples and families have better lives. It has been a rewarding journey to embark upon. My desire is to respect how our minds, souls, and biology are all interwoven, which demands attention to the whole person for healing and growth. I enjoy strengthening relationship to bring about understanding and stronger bonds. Despite the challenges, life is better together. I desire to help win that challenge.
I am available to groups large or small to speak about the necessity of systems approach to corporate function. Coming from one of the most elite military units in our nation, the U.S. Navy SEALs, I have a unique perspective on group dynamics and the “Team” mentality. Trained as a SEAL, a medic, a sniper, a hand-to-hand combat trainer and Marriage and Family Therapies I am willing to take on about anything. I would covet the opportunity to help your organization to be healthier and more productive. My approach is to listen and understand what needs attention in your organization, not just to talk about what I know.
