Human Credentials

Son, Brother, Uncle, Friend, Lifelong Learner, Educator, Mentor — my relationships with people have been the greatest teaching tools in my life. While I value my formal education, {people} have helped cultivate my understanding of what it means to be an empathic, humorous, and compassionate person. Just as with other relationships, I value my clients' story as sacred. Our conversations may go deep, they may bring up difficult memories, but they may also be filled with laughter, joy, and real change.

Honorable Mentions: Dog Lover, Runner, Swimmer, Kayaker, Coffee Enthusiast, Planner, Idea Guru, Equality Seeker...
