I received my undergraduate degree in Secondary Education from University of Vermont. I graduated with a Master's degree in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University. 

I have 18 years military experience and currently serve as a Major in the Marine Reserves at Camp Pendleton. Towards the end of my active duty career as an Infantry Officer, I served as Platoon Commander for Wounded Warrior Battalion-West, gaining a sincere appreciation for the needs of service members in the arena of mental wellness.

I have experience working with adults and teens. While in graduate school, I worked for Pepperdine Resource Youth Diversion and Education program where I counseled teens and their families. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and  currently supervised by Beth Holder LMFT while working towards an additional license of Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor.

I am a Boston transplant.  My wife and I have lived in Southern California since 2012 and appreciate being able to call South Orange County our home, raising our young son.
