Do you constantly worry or obsess? I have a passion for helping clients overcome symptoms of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), anxiety disorders, and representations of trauma. I continually ensure that I am coming from a knowledgeable place when working with clients, not only by practicing evidence-based therapeutic interventions, but also by recognizing the complexities and nuance of commonly misunderstood mental health issues. I believe that psychotherapy is most effective when the client feels supported and the work is collaborative.

In navigating life's challenges, we often construct defenses that, while once protective, now leave us feeling stuck and isolated. Together, we will work to chip away at these accumulated layers and begin to articulate a more authentic and comfortable way of being in the world. My approach is rooted in compassion and understanding, offering a safe haven for healing while encouraging you gently to your full potential. Together, we'll shift from the shadows of criticism, fear and shame to a path illuminated by self-discovery and growth.

My clients are just like you - to the outsider they appear like they have it all together. But on the inside something feels stuck, or at least worth exploring. I believe we are all trying our best to navigate the journey of life with the only strategies we know. Sometimes those ways work well for us, and other times they don’t. I am passionate about issues surrounding parenting, life transitions, emotional intelligence, vocation and purpose, and coping mechanisms. I particularly enjoy being a listening ear for fellow dads who try everyday to be the best dad they can be.

Relationships should enrich your life—they should bring you more joy, depth, and safety than you’d experience without them. In my work, I know what’s at stake—I know about the comfort and vitality that secure relationships can bring us, and I know too about the fear and loneliness that we can fall into when by nature, we’ve stopped paying attention. These lows can leave us remembering our early days and wondering where we’ve gone wrong, or whether we’ve ever been right for each other from the start. I know the intense pain of losing hope.
