I've worked in hospice care, as a grief counselor, and as a cancer support counselor.
Do you find yourself in a place of transition or dissatisfaction with your day to day life, but you're unsure how to make a change for the better? It can be so discouraging when the desire to change and create for ourselves is there, but the path to success isn't clear. We can find opportunity and joy in this life. Sometimes we just need a little support, guidance, and direction from an ally that can bring a more objective view. Whatever aspect of your life you are looking to improve, we can create a plan together that gets you to a life you want to live.

My areas of skill and experience include: helping couples restore love and connection in their relationship; coaching men who are seeking to establish more meaningful personal and professional relationships; supporting those impacted by cancer or facing end of life; and working with adolescent boys through social, emotional or spiritual challenges.
My work as a therapist is based on a conviction that our choices and relationship patterns are fueled by our need to experience wholeness and heal the brokenness of our past. This concept lies at the core of attachment theory and is a powerful tool for helping us understand why we struggle with others and with our own internal critic. In my therapeutic work, I leverage aspects of Imago, Strengths, Solution-focused, Internal Family, and Relational-Cultural theories to help clients progress towards deeper and more meaningful connections with themselves and others.

The decision to begin therapy is one that requires courage and a desire to improve one’s life. As we navigate a series of crises unlike anything we have experienced in our lifetime, therapy has become even more important as a source of support for the challenges we confront. Having a trusted helper can make a significant difference in our lives. No matter what you are confronting, I have years of experience helping people cultivate more fulfilling lives. Additionally, it is my purpose to be an ally to and a safe space for the disenfranchised in the Queer, Black, Latinx, Asian, immigrant, Jewish, Muslim, and atheist communities.

Being human can be hard. Especially when you feel isolated, different-than, stagnant, or unworthy. As I've come to understand, many of these emotional states can come from unresolved wounds/traumas from our past and I want to help you unpack your story and reconcile these emotional wounds. I believe that you already have many of the answers you seek, so let me help you uncover them so that you can re-engage with your life more fully and openly. Change and ambiguity no longer have to be so scary. If you're interested in intensive-styled (day/days long) work together, rather than hour long sessions, please let me know!
