Pastoral Counselor & Executive Director, Founder
I grew up in Poughkeepsie, New York and attended State University of New York at Fredonia where I received an undergraduate degree in Business Administration. I also hold a master’s degree in Business Administration from Winthrop University. No college degree could have ever prepared me for the difficulties and pressures I faced in life while trying to appear I had it all together. It all changed in 2003, when my life started to crumble. Through God’s grace, I found Grace Ministries and began a counseling and healing journey and learning the truth about myself. A journey that not only changed my life but saved it too. In 2010, I went back to Grace Ministries and after two years, completed their Pastoral Counselor training program.In 2013, I joined Healing Grace Ministries, part-time, and finished my Counselor training. In 2015, I walked away from my secular, corporate job and devoted my life to full-time ministry by serving the needs of others.
After six and half wonderful years of serving at Healing Grace Ministries, I decided to open Lifewell Ministries to focus on sharing what I’ve learned, sharing all I know and sharing what I’ve experienced from my own healing journey. I know the counseling process at Lifewell Ministries works. Why? because I’ve walked and lived it myself.
Honestly, much of what I shared above was has only possible because of the incredible faith, prayer and support from my beautiful wife, Jill. I’m so blessed and thankful to have my wife and our 3 children, Steven, Kelly and Lydia in my life!
