Ryan is an anchor of calm, counsel, and encouragement. He is an experienced LifeStar Therapist who can, with a soft-spoken word, change your life for the better.
Ryan knows what it is to be divorced, remarried, and a father to 8 children in a blended family. With a intensely calm demeanor he works really hard at many things - with his clients in private sessions, anchoring LifeStar’s Group Therapy practice, as a husband, a dad, or simply doing yard work (which he really enjoys!). Many know that Ryan’s immediate authenticity is a powerful reason he is an effective counselor to almost anyone facing life’s challenges.
"When we are mindful, we get to choose."
