I grew up in a troubled home where communication as a unit was not a strong suit. By the time I was a young teenager I had grown to be a very quiet and reserved individual; so quiet and reserved that those around me were unaware of my thoughts and feelings. My 14th birthday was the first battle I had with suicidal ideation.  That same day after the attempt on my own life, I came to realize that if I did not ask for help I would not make it to see 15+.  I went to my mother and shared everything I had been keeping to myself. On that same day of almost choosing death, I chose to seek help. I went through several different therapists before finding someone I meshed with, someone who could see me and my struggles, someone who shared tools they had acquired via schooling and their own life experiences with me. That therapist and those tools are why I am here today and why I feel right at home working as a Client Coordinator.

I want you to be seen, I want you to be heard, and I would love nothing more than to help point you in the direction of those that can help you gather the tools you need to grow into your highest self.

In my free time I enjoy Yoga (in all aspects), hiking, cooking, video games, reading, making music, writing poetry/lyrics and spending time with my wife and animals.
