Andrew began working at New Haven as a residential staff in 2007 while completing his bachelor’s degree in psychology at Brigham Young University. After working in the residential department of New Haven for a few years, he left to earn a graduate degree at Colorado State University in Marriage & Family Therapy. Since then, Andrew has worked with adolescents in a variety of settings including residential treatment, clinical supervision of a mentoring program for at-risk youth, community mental health, and teaching.
Andrew returned to New Haven because he is drawn to the strong relationship-based programming and the positive values that New Haven teaches. He uses the relational aspect of therapy to facilitate healing and create positive change. He has experience working with individuals suffering from trauma, depression, anxiety, oppositional defiance, ADHD, personality disorders, and other mental health concerns.
Andrew enjoys pretty much anything outdoors (including biking, skiing, snowboarding, long boarding, hiking, backpacking, and camping), and he also enjoys a variety of sports. He loves to travel, see new places, and learn about other cultures. Most of all, he loves to spend time with his wonderful wife and two kids.
