I met my wife at the College of William and Mary. We have been married for 24 years and have two children, a son (age 11) and a daughter (age 14).
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with Master degrees in Social Work (Virginia Commonwealth University) and Divinity (Emory University). I currently serve as a Fellow with The Allender Center, and I am the host of The Place We Find Ourselves podcast.
My approach to therapy has been shaped primarily by Dan Allender, Daniel Siegel, Allan Schore, Pat Ogden, and Bessel van der Kolk. You can find their works on the Books page.
Activities I enjoy include mountain biking, skiing, soccer, and painting (canvas, not houses).
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the person who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood.
