It is my highest priority as a therapist to create a genuine, safe, and supportive environment so you can feel comfortable expressing yourself. I am dedicated to helping you explore options for change, and together we will learn about your strengths and how to utilize them.

I have specific interest in Mindfulness-based practices that help to reduce anxiety and develop bodily awareness essential to healing trauma. I have particular experience working with male psychological issues, substance abuse, relationship issues, artistic blocks, depression and anxiety disorders.

Choosing to be in psychotherapy can be a deeply meaningful experience and it is important to find the right therapist, so please feel free to contact me for a phone consultation, or to discuss questions you might have. Let's collaborate and create a plan that will help you achieve your goals.
