My Coaching and Counseling Journey

Be the most you you can be!


What I do

I use cutting edge counseling and coaching approaches to help lost people reconnect with themselves to overcome obstacles and achieve their dreams.

My Background

I hold a master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling, and have over 12,000 hours of experience working with all kinds of people.  My first four years as a counselor were in crisis intervention where I worked with people with severe and persistent mental illnesses like schizophrenia, chronic suicidal thoughts and actions, and substance use.  I am a trained grief counselor and am happy to walk with you through the hardest parts of life.  I have also been a dedicated career counselor and have a unique understanding of the importance of the right career path.

My Training and Certifications

I am certified in Psychological First Aid, and have specialized training in trauma therapy such as EMDR, Somatic Experiencing, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.  I am also trained in Motivational Interviewing and Dialectical Behavior Therapy.

I have assisted with business planning and startup of six successful businesses, and have owned and operated three businesses of my own.  I love the business planning process, and think outside the box to help business coaching clients build successful, long-lasting companies.

What My Clients Say


Ryan helped me see that my career was beating me up.  He helped me figure out who I am and what I need from life.  I'm so much happier in my job and my marriage.

Michael P.52

I couldn't even leave my house I was so anxious in crowds.  Now I enjoy walks in the park and I don't break down in the grocery store.  I never thought I'd see the day!  Thanks Ryan!

Robin L.43

I was torn between two jobs.  Ryan helped me find my passion.  I'm making more money with less stress, and it's all because of this program.

Susan W.48

My wife and me were talking about divorce. After meeting with Ryan for a few months, we were able to fix our communication problems.  We have hope for the future now, and we're closer than ever. Thank you for your help!

I just graduated college and felt lost.  Ryan's personal growth coaching set me on a new path that I feel really good about!

Justin C.25

I finally feel like I have answers.  Ryan never pushed me, but he helped me find my voice and guided me to what was already inside me.  It's been such a relief.
