If you are a military veteran, queer, or gender non-conforming, I can offer you unique insight based on my extensive training, background, and personal history in these areas.
You've spent much of your life doing the things that you "should," so you wonder, "why don't I feel happier?" People may see you as "put together" and accomplished from the outside, but inside, you feel numb, chaotic, anxious, or even broken. I help people who've been through traumatic experiences feel in charge of their lives again without being held back by painful memories from the past. If you feel angry, stressed, depressed, guilty, or self-loathing, I want you to know that there is a way through this to a meaningful and happy life.

I am eager to work with adults who have experienced trauma and want therapy to look through how it has impacted them. Trauma can mean a lot to different people though whether that is from sexual assault, military combat, child abuse, cultural/religious abuse or loss of a loved one. What is important is that there was a meaningful shift you struggle to deal with, and I want to help. It also more than post-traumatic stress. You can also experience great sadness, daily stress or trouble in your relationships you do not understand.

I am particularly experienced with military and Veteran communities, early and middle adulthood, and healthcare professionals.
Our connections with ourselves, others, and our communities can bring tremendous joy, meaning, and fulfillment. In contrast, experiences of disconnection can elicit profound anguish. A crucial step toward relief and enduring growth in psychotherapy starts with an affirming connection with your therapist. Beyond the reasons that bring you in, I am committed to listening to your life story and learning about you as a whole, imperfect person who deserves unconditional care and respect. From there, we can identify opportunities to relate to yourself and others in new ways.

I have also worked with individuals struggling with severe mental illness, as well as active duty military members and veterans .
We all have unique stories. Our pasts form us into who we are today, and oftentimes what once worked for us, no longer does. Therapy can help us to gain the insight to understand our stories, but more importantly, help us to choose new ways of living and engaging with ourselves, others, and the world. In the context of a supportive relationship, we will work together to move towards a life where you can experience more meaning and freedom.

Many of us are looking outside ourselves for love, fulfillment and joy only to find ourselves deeply dissatisfied, lonely and separated from connection and intimacy with others and ourselves. Life can be difficult and is filled with challenges and traumatic experiences that require our attention and care in order to heal. We are skilled at silencing the aching inside via escape hatches: excessive shopping, over/under eating, using drugs or alcohol, sex, gambling, gaming, etc. I believe the therapeutic relationship can offer support as we move into freedom by learning to live in the present moment with all life has to offer.

Welcome, I’m so glad you are considering therapy at this time. There are so many reasons why you might find yourself here right now. Maybe you have been feeling out of control lately, unable to manage your emotions. Maybe you are feeling less connected in your relationships, or perhaps you find yourself struggling with moving forward in some aspect of your life. All of this is understandable, and a normal part of being human. While it might feel like nothing can change or be different for you, the very fact that you are here speaks to some part of you that believes change is possible.

What does therapy in the time of Covid-19 mean? These days when our life has been turned upside down, our general sense of anxiety may have increased. What will happen in the future? Will my family be ok? Will I have a job? At the same time, this public health crisis is intersecting very uniquely with our own personal life. Maybe you’re a college senior who didn’t get to graduate. Maybe you’ve recently had a loss and now feel more lonely than ever. Maybe now past trauma is coming to the fore. Maybe all of this just feels overwhelming. I can help. I bring a goal oriented, holistic approach to help you bring more calm to your life.

As a clinician, I am focused on helping clients find a life of meaning and value. Often times in our pain there is incredibly useful information about what's important to us. As humans, we have evolved to move away from physical pain, to escape it: and for most types of pain, those methods work! But for emotional pain, avoidance not only doesn’t get rid of our pain and suffering, it often amplifies it. In discovering how each individual client finds meaning in their lives, we ground ourselves in the willingness to walk toward our pain, rather than away from it. It is in this space that we find healing and meaningful change.

I view therapy as an invitation to bring awareness to the here and now. For many of us, we press forward, through, and over difficult feelings when they arise in our daily lives. Often they show up as unwanted thoughts or images. They not only fill us with dread, but we will go to great lengths to avoid them. On the other hand, what if moving toward our feelings actually reduces the influence they have over us, allowing us to attend to the very things we value, thereby creating meaning and purpose in our lives.

I work with clients from a wide variety of backgrounds, who have all come to a shared realization: that their way of living is no longer working for them. Whether they are struggling with addiction or depression or find themselves experiencing relationship difficulties, they all aspire to something new; something more. Together we identify the nature of their particular dissatisfaction, discover how they got there, and develop a more desirable and sustainable reality. I believe that my role is to be a nonjudgmental companion to my clients on their unique journey of self-discovery and profound change.
