I have been working as a Marriage and Family Therapist since 2004. I received my Associate of Arts degree from the University of Florida, my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from the University of Maryland Baltimore County, and my Master of Science degree in Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) from Central Connecticut State University. I have worked with various populations in multiple settings, including interning in an in-patient drug and alcohol treatment facility, and working in a residential facility for children, an in-home therapeutic program for juvenile offenders and their families, and an outpatient services program for adults. I have been in private practice since 2007.
Prior to becoming a family therapist, I spent many years in the business sector working with computers and becoming very familiar with the spirit of Dilbert cartoons, owning my very own piece of cubicle real estate. I was fortunate enough at the time to be able to keep my day job while working my way through the Marriage and Family Therapy program at night.
When I’m not working, I love to spend time with my wife traveling to different parts of the country, taking photographs, listening to music, watching movies, and occasionally exploring my range of flexibility in one of my wife’s yoga classes. We are also non-runners who trained for and completed our first marathon – the Walt Disney World Marathon in Orlando, FL, on January 10, 2010. In 2011, we began a different kind of marathon – raising our new baby girl, Julia. And in 2014, we started it all over again with the birth of our son, Ethan.
