I have pursued God's direction for my life since my Christian conversion at age 11. Subsequent to my graduation with a BA in psychology (1977) from Westmont College I intended to become a Christian minister. After working a summer as a Jr. High Intern I sensed a calling to become a psychologist. I graduated with a PhD from the Clinical Psychology program at Western Conservative Baptist Seminary (1986). I completed a Pre-doctoral Internship at Philhaven Hospital before coming to Salt Lake City. I am certified as a Group Psychotherapist (CGP, 1996), Practitioner of Psychodrama (CP, 1997), Board Certified Trainer, Educator and Practitioner of Psychodrama (TEP, 2001), Board Certified Professional Christian Counselor (BCPCC, 2007), and Board Certified in Group Psychology (ABPP, 2015).

I have been at CCCU since 1989, serving as Clinical Director since 1993. I am the Director of Shepherd's Staff Training in Psychodrama. I serve as a Mental Health Professional/ Team Leader for the volunteer Utah Critical Incident Stress Management Team. I am also an Adjunct Instructor in Psychiatry, Volunteer Auxiliary Faculty, University of Utah, School of Medicine, Department of Psychiatry, offering an occasional educational workshop.

My special interests include spiritual/faith related issues, psychological trauma related disorders (posttraumatic stress, dissociation, etc.), grief counseling/psychotherapy, and psychodrama/group psychotherapy. General practice areas include adults, adolescents, and children, individual, couple/marriage, and family psychotherapy, depression/mood, anxiety, and somatoform disorders, sexual addictions, psychological testing, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), and hypnotherapy. I offer demonstration sessions in psychodrama as a way to introduce myself and psychodrama to the public and other professionals.

My therapeutic orientation is primarily eclectic and holistic incorporating psychodynamic, (family) systems, and cognitive-behavioral conceptualizations but with special sensitivity toward a humanistic approach within a Christian framework. Major interests are in the individual and interpersonal relationships and all orientations and approaches incorporating and emphasizing the health of a person and his/her relationships yet also appreciating the "spiritual," emotional, cognitive and physical aspects of human functioning. Treatment is tailored to the needs of the individual and priority is given to short-term approaches when they are applicable.

I am pleased to work with my wife at CCCU and enjoy my two children. I serve in various ministries at South Valley Community Church. I have retired from running after two marathons and now bicycle and backpack to stay in shape. (more-vita)
