From there we will use mindfulness and ACT to develop a more open and willing stance to lean into the full range of human experience.
I work primarily with high preforming athletes, artists, and creative types looking to find balance and live a richer more meaningful life. If painful or uncomfortable thoughts, feelings, memories or sensations are getting in the way of you moving toward what matters I will work with you to develop a more compassionate relationship with yourself and find peace of mind. I work with people struggling with anxiety, men's issues, relationship and work stress, unresolved trauma/grief, and life transitions. I help clients get in touch with their core values, develop mindfulness, so they can slow down and choose meaningful action.

Together we work to identify which aspects are beyond our control, finding acceptance and ownership as needed, and ultimately the empowerment and freedom to embrace change.
Stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, and addiction have a way of taking over our lives, leaving no room to experience joy. I'm here to help. Change is often scary and hard, but in a safe, therapeutic partnership, it becomes possible. By creating an empathetic and supportive environment, we're able to refocus your energy so you can rediscover yourself, achieve lasting relief, and ultimately embrace more opportunities to experience joy and fulfillment.

You’re struggling with difficult feelings in your relationship with a spouse, partner, your child, family members, friends or people at work. Or you may be trying to come to terms with painful feelings about things that happened in the past. When you’re hurting or feeling confused, you don’t know what to do. People in your life may not understand you or your experiences. You may want to develop greater self-awareness and hope to find a greater sense of choice and freedom in your life. It takes courage to sit with the layers of your experience. And it also takes time. Therapy allows for time to look inside and be present.
