Darren was raised in a dysfunctional abusive family system and is familiar with the challenges faced in life as a result such as depression, anxiety, and PTSD as well as grief and loss from the death of loved ones. After facing and growing from these challenges Darren believes everyone has a life story to tell and most people have a deep desire to be heard by someone. Darren comes alongside a client to uncover the core issues underlying the problems they may face. Darren will be empathetic, gentle, and humble as he helps a client to work through their issues. Darren’s Christian faith influences his world view and allows him to have unconditional love for a client along with having a non-judgmental attitude.
Darren is married and has two children. He took a 5 year hiatus from counseling after receiving his master’s degree to become a stay at home dad and raise his two children. Darren enjoys spending time with his family, reading and studying the Bible and playing chess and other board games.
Darren received his bachelor’s degree in Computer Science in 1996 from Florida International University. He decided to change his career and earned his master’s degree in Marital and Family Therapy in 2009 from Western Seminary.
