Adam is a licensed psychotherapist, trainer, and consultant with Enliven Psychotherapy. From his experiences working in a wide variety of youth work settings, Adam put together The Democratic Youth Engagement (DYE) Model, a collaborative approach for adults living and working with young people. Central to his clinical work is gaining full consent for psychotherapy from all of his clients - ensuring that they are driving their goals for treatment - regardless of their age.

Adam spent over a decade combining his passions for healing and the arts, serving as Founder and Artistic Director of blank slate theatre, a personal growth-oriented theatre for adolescents in Saint Paul, Minnesota. While there, he collaborated with culturally and ability diverse adolescents to produce over two dozen theatre pieces centering on themes of mental health and social change, including the award-winning Disordered [thy name is teenager], and Bottom, a play on child sex trafficking. Adam also was proud to serve as chair of the "Safe Schools, Safe Students Conference," which sought to address mental health issues in schools, innovate family involvement with schools, soothe peer aggression, and eliminate school shootings.

When not at Enliven, Adam spends time listening to nerdy podcasts, watching scary movies, and strengthening his broken spine.
