Pastoral & Clinical Counselor

"The world will never starve for want of wonders; but only for want of wonder." G.K. Chesterton

Nick is a licensed clinical counselor with Master’s degrees in both Pastoral and Clinical Counseling. He has experience within Christian residential and private settings working with couples, teenagers, and their families on a range of presenting issues. He looks forward to working with those who desire to work through the toxic effects of trauma, improve the quality and depth of their relationships with their spouse or children, learn how to manage team conflict effectively, address faith struggles in a supportive environment, overcome the causes and impact of depression or anxiety on their lives and ministry, understand and work through the causes of burnout, or overcome additions that have kept them stuck in unhealthy patterns.

Nick has specialized training in several trauma related therapies (including EMDR and TF-CBT) and TBRI (Trust-Based Relational Intervention). He has trained national staff with a ministry in Haiti in providing trauma competent care to children from hard places, and enjoys working with couples utilizing the Gottman Method. He loves integrating his work with both neuroscience and the Christian faith.

Nick and his wife enjoy traveling and experiencing new cultures. He has interests in theology, political theory, and English literature. He enjoys a good podcast and is always learning something new! He and his wife are also passionate about supporting workers and helping them thrive.
