I’m Passionate about what I do
In my years of experience working with people, I’ve discovered that I enjoy inspiring others to move past fears, insecurities and pain to move toward the “full and abundant life.” I’ve been through my fair share of ups, downs, surprises, and frustrations in life. I’ve realized for myself and others that it’s often those gut wrenching moments that bring us our greatest opportunities for insight, transformation and growth. I love helping others find the life they were meant to live, living in balance, and peace, often amidst the storms.
While I’m a busy woman myself, as a wife, mother, and business owner, I love balance. I love peace, focusing in on my priorities, saying no when it’s needed, letting go of perfectionism and surrendering to God. I didn’t always have this much clarity and to be honest – it’s still a daily goal- but it sure feels good, and I want to help you get there too.
Schooling and Experience:
I received my bachelors from Palm Beach Atlantic University. I then attended Focus on the Family Institute in Colorado, studying marriage, and family. Later I received my Masters in Clinical Social Work from Barry University, and became licensed in the state of Florida. I’ve had the pleasure of helping others at various institutions and settings such as an outpatient mental health hospital, residential ministry, a residential dual diagnosis treatment program, a home based family program assisting women and families through pregnancy and postpartum period, group and private practice.

Why I Coach
I’m passionate about helping young men focus on making the right decisions now, building their relationship with God, dealing with struggles in a healthy and mature way, building the right relationships with friends and family, and planning for the bright future ahead of them.
I grew up in New England as the youngest of four boys. By the time I was 14, I had lost one of my brothers to AIDS, along with a multitude of other issues. This completely shaped my view of God, family, and my relationships going forward. Dealing with loss at a young age is one of the most difficult things I have ever dealt with, but with the help of family, friends, and God, I’ve learned to see the purpose in my experiences.
I’ve lived in Palm Beach County for the past 13 years, am a husband, proud father of three, and have a career in my dream job working with students on a daily basis.
I graduated with a degree in History from Palm Beach Atlantic University, minoring in Political Science where I also worked as a Resident Assistant and Assistant Resident Director. I received my Master of Education in Educational Leadership from Concordia University. I have worked with students in various settings from youth bible study leader, coaching sports, residential ministry, and teaching.
