• MA in counseling from Western Seminary, Seattle
• Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in Washington State
• Associated with The Gottman Institute
I have been teaching, coaching, mentoring and counseling couples for nearly 10 years. I earned my MA in counseling in 2001 from Western Seminary Seattle. Western Seminary later became The Seattle School of Theology & Psychology. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in Washington State.
Post graduate experience includes continuing education with The Gottman Institute, where I have completed Level 3 Practicum Training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy. I also completed the inaugural certification training for Bringing Baby Home and I am a PREPARE/ENRICH facilitator.
I have been happily married to Rebecca for 15 of 16 years – year number 8 was pretty rough. Together, we have been teaching & mentoring couples through classes and small groups at Bethany Community Church since 2005. We live in Seattle with our two daughters, seven and eleven. We own a mini-van and most of the silverware we received as wedding presents.
