My goal-oriented approach draws from both my life experiences and academics.

I certainly have experience with making major life changes!

After graduating from the University of Vermont with a bachelor’s degree in psychology in 1978, I worked my way up to eventually operating and owning a highly successful business.

During those years I experienced marriage, fatherhood, divorce, remarriage and raised a close and emotionally healthy blended family with my second wife.

In 2004 I had the opportunity to sell my business, which allowed me to return to my earliest goal: helping people with their personal challenges. I attended the Psychological Studies graduate program at Seton Hall University and earned a master’s degree with high honors specializing in Marriage and Family therapy.
