God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power and love and self-control (2 Tim. 1:7)

I'll help you unpack the burdens you are carrying.

As a priest of the Diocese of Bridgeport, CT and a certified CatholicPsych mentor, I have a particular desire to accompany priests and religious men and women as they navigate the challenges of ministry, embrace their need for healing, and seek greater integration while pursuing holiness of life.

“We are not the sum of our weaknesses and failures, we are the sum of the Father’s love for us and our real capacity to become the image of His Son Jesus.” – Pope St. John Paul II

Mentorship brings together the best elements of spiritual direction and counseling, allowing us to face our deepest spiritual needs as well as the most everyday issues. It provides daily support and accountability in a way that allows us to cut through the noise and get to the heart of the matter. Ministering to the needs of others often leaves us depleted and hesitant to face our own needs. Through mentorship, we can confidently bring our own wounds and desires forward, all while being prepared more effectively to accompany our people and minister in the Church.

the world needs a catholic standard of mental health

“Everyone, in fact, especially those who have heeded the divine call to follow Christ closely, needs to be accompanied personally by a guide reliable in doctrine and expert in the things of God”

one sentence summary about what you do at your business


Integrated Mentorship

We know how God made you, why you're stuck, and how to get you unstuck

The mentorship model I provide allows me to walk with you in full view of your whole humanity- your body, mind, and SPIRIT. We are trained by the CatholicPsych Model to understand you through the lens of Faith, Reason, and Science. This is the ONLY way to really know you, and how to help you.

A Daily Model

Accompaniment modeled after Christ should meet you in the context of your daily life, just like He does.

We help you understand and experience the work of God in your life. And even if you struggle with, or don't even believe in God, we can help you to experience how Goodness, Truth, and Beauty are pursuing you in the context of your lived life. You don't have to compartmentalize your "self-care" away from the rest of your life - I'll be with you every day, to walk with you as you are making your way through whatever real challenges are presented to you.



Covering all the bases

If you're having a human experience, I can help you

Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, addiction, or other typical mental health related issues, are looking for support and clarity in vocation-related struggles or discernment, are simply feeling burned out where you're at in life, or want to go deeper and reach further along your path to holiness and happiness, the Catholic model I practice from will help you.

What are your qualifications? 

I am a CatholicPsych Institute certified mentor and was part of the inaugural class of their CPMAP mentorship program. The CPMAP model integrates solid Catholic anthropology and spirituality with the best of the psychological sciences for an integrated understanding of the human person.

In fifteen years of priestly ministry, I have served as a parochial vicar, school chaplain, vocation director, and, for the last nine years, pastor. Additionally, I hold a licentiate in dogmatic theology from the Pontifical Gregorian University.

While I am not a licensed therapist and cannot diagnose or prescribe medications, I am eager to listen to your story and help you experience the healing God desires in your life.

What exactly is Mentorship?

Mentorship (technically called Integrated Daily Dialogic Mentorship, or IDDM) is neither traditional counseling nor spiritual direction, but occupies a unique space in between those two fields. Mentorship is daily accompaniment, looking at you and your story as an integrated whole, examined at your pace, with the goal of finding happiness and holiness in your life.
