Meet Chad:

I am passionate about joining people of all walks of life on their journey towards healing and freedom.  I work with individuals, families, children, and couples who long for fuller life, freedom from past pain, and life-giving relationships.  I use an eclectic mix of therapeutic approaches depending on each individual situation, including cognitive behavioral therapy, Gestalt play therapy, narrative therapy, reality therapy, existential therapy, and person-centered therapy.

I am married to an amazing, supportive wife, and together we have three wonderful daughters.  During my spare time, I like to commune with nature, catch a movie, swim, and compete in adventure races.  I do not let fear hold me back from anything; because after all, how can I help clients move past their demons if I haven’t?  As my favorite quote says, “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.  Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.” (Maryanne Williamson)
