About Me

I have been fortunate enough to have been raised in the church community since I was a child. However, like most Christians, I have had ups and downs in my walk with Christ and I hope that my experiences can help me help others. I went to college to become a doctor and it became clear quickly that God had a different plan for me. Through His guidance and grace, I was lead into the counseling ministry at my church. I began to notice that it felt like I was finally using the gifts God has given me. I truly believe that God brought me into this profession and that He guides me to help others on a daily basis. I am thankful for this calling and hope that I can prayerfully be of help and support to you.

Ryan askes the right probing questions to discover the roots of what I am dealing with. I am excited for my journey of discovery ahead, knowing that my cousellor is more than equipped to help me untangle my subconscious and deal with what I am facing.

I’ve really appreciated the time and effort Ryan has put in to help me. He has clearly put in plenty of thought in my circumstances and tried to give the best he can give for my benefit.

Ryan is very patient and caring. I initially had a previous counselor who was not patient, which led me to getting a different counselor. He gives information and practical solutions to help you figure out what your problem is, which would make you examine your approach towards becoming a better person. He gives examples, and is patient to explain even though you repeatedly ask the same questions and complaints. I would say people like Ryan are rare, and they give us hope that there are counselors out there who are willing to help you.

Dr. Ryan was full of compassion and empathy, which were the essential elements I was looking for in a counselor.
My sessions were interactive - he offered me a lot of workbooks to complete and exercises to do.
I was subscribed for three months but I was able to reconcile my issues and worked out a pathway towards my future in just two months because of his support and expertise.
I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a touch of compassion and practical counselling.
