Clinical Director, Psychologist, Marketing Project Coordinator
Office Ext. 3, Office Locations: Salt Lake City & Ogden

I have pursued God's direction for my life since my Christian conversion at age 11. After 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 Practitioner of Psychodrama (CP, 1997), Board Certified Trainer, Educator and Practitioner of Psychodrama (TEP, 2001), 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, and psychological testing; depression, anxiety, and somatic symptoms, sexual addictions; healing of memories, and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR). I offer demonstration sessions in psychodrama to introduce myself and the method to the public and other professionals.

My therapeutic approach involves a bringing together of a variety of ways of understanding and helping including those that highlight the significance of earlier life experiences and recurring patterns of behavior; the influence of one’s family of origin and current family; the importance of how one thinks and behaves; and the overarching value of empathy, respect, and being genuine; and with groups the value of putting yourself in the place of (the) other(s), appreciating your connection with them, of understanding through action and experience, and of helping others while they are helping you; all in harmony with a Christian worldview and perspective. My major interest is in the individual and their relationships and approaches that focus on their well-being and that recognize the spiritual, emotional, cognitive, and physical aspects of being a person. 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 grown 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-cv)
