My approach to psychotherapy is based in the belief that we, as people, possess the strength and resources necessary to make positive, helpful changes in our lives. My goal is to help my clients develop solutions to the problems life can present, building resilience and coping skills, reconnecting with their values, and thinking critically (and compassionately) about their own distress processes. In other words: to develop their own compassionate inner-therapist. I strive to create a space with his clients that is collaborative, accepting, non-judgmental, and authentic, which I view as essential to the therapeutic relationship.

During my career in Mental Health and Addictions I have worked with many different populations, though my passion has been working with people experiencing anxiety, depression, self esteem issues, folks in the LGBT2SQ community, and in recent years, a focus on working with Trans folks. Do you need help coping with anxiety, setting boundaries with those around you, or navigating changes in life situation? Are you coming out as LGBT2SQ and need support? Are you looking to transition and want a trans friendly therapist? Are you burned out at work and looking for someone to talk to? If so, I’d love to be of help.

Becoming a therapist has been an intentional journey that is the direct result of a desire to collaboratively facilitate healing in myself and those around me. It is difficult to be in the world right now and experiencing disconnection from ourselves and others can contribute to overall feelings of isolation and 'stuckness'. Our work together will foster the resilience and self-compassion needed to weather these storms and to recognize and celebrate the wisdom found in the struggle.

In my practice, I help folks identify and understand the negative and self-limiting stories that they tell themselves. Often, these stories, or negative thought loops, keep people from living the lives that they desire due to the feelings of anxiety or sense of being ‘stuck’ that they produce. I advise folks in emotion regulation skills and techniques that can help them manage their emotions and navigate their situations, which can lead to more calm and grounded experiences.

Sometimes we feel like we’re stuck or are moving backwards when we want to go forwards. How do we stay present in our day-to-day lives when we are visited by the voices of the past or images of the future? How do we find and listen to the voice of strength, wisdom and resiliency that lives in each one of us, when that voice seems to be silent?
