He also has a degree in Pastoral Care and Counseling from the University of San Diego which he received in 2005. Ryan's passion is working with "spiritual issues," more specifically, the existential questions that leave one wondering "Why am I here?" or "What is my purpose in life?" His goal is to reduce suffering and bring peace into the lives of his clients by helping them realize that they are more than their thoughts (the products of the thinking mind) and they can actualize their full potential as persons, becoming the best version of themselves. Ryan describes himself as "a therapist, not an administrator," but after entering into private practice realizes that administration is also part of having a therapy business. For this reason, he has joined the board of directors to serve a role as administrator for SDNC-CAMFT.
