I specialize in guiding men and couples through a transformative journey of self-discovery, equipping them to conquer deep-seated obstacles that hinder their pursuit of a rich and purposeful life. Among the challenges we address are childhood trauma, unmet expectations, skewed priorities, and navigating through tough seasons.

Drawing from my own experiences of childhood trauma, personal trials, and adversity, I approach our conversations with empathy and humility. Our interactions are rooted in a non-judgmental atmosphere, providing a safe haven where hope, acceptance, and purpose are discovered.  Together, we’ll craft a roadmap toward Christian maturity, fostering growth and fulfillment in every aspect of life.

I’m a native Texan, grew up in the Houston area, and have lived in Austin since 2004.  As a devoted father of two older teenagers and a husband of 25 years, my life journey has been enriched by the pursuit of Christian faith, a decision I made during my senior year of high school after growing up Jewish.  I’ve held engineering, sales, and marketing roles in corporate America since 1995.  My hobbies include hunting, cooking, hiking, mountain climbing, backpack camping, running, swimming, and weight lifting.
