About Us

“People travel to wonder at the height of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars; and they pass by themselves without wondering.” – Augustine of Hippo


We exist to see people free and flourishing.


I did not found Daring Ventures to be just another counseling practice, coaching organization, or consultation service. I have sought to bring together an interdisciplinary team of experts with diverse backgrounds and training united by a common passion. The Daring Ventures team is a living, breathing, growing embodiment of our vision, mission, and values.
We take seriously our convictions regarding the inherent worth of every person, the hope that healing is possible, and the gravity of the work we’re entrusted to do. We are convinced that total commitment to both the very best in clinical excellence and authentic compassionate care are one and the same goal. Humans are fearfully and wonderfully made—complex, mysterious, beautiful—and we are passionate about helping people heal, change, grow, and flourish.
We innovate. We create. We seek answers. We celebrate. We offer honesty, kindness, and safety.

Daring Ventures is built on a foundational belief that we are created for connection. This truth is confirmed in psychology, neuroscience, spirituality, and our lived experiences. We are a safe place to begin to choose connection and discover the joy of knowing and being known.
It would be our honor to walk with you on your journey.
With gratitude,
