Sometimes life is hard... and sometimes we get 'hard' confused with 'bad'. We can get through hard, even the hardest... and sometimes we need help. Feeling out of balance or lost can be really hard, unsure how to get back to your real sense of self living day to day with clarity in the world. I try to be with you just where you are, through a felt sense of authenticity and empathy for your struggles and joys, your challenges and your strengths. My work involves co-creating a holistic approach to problem-solving, emotional regulation, energetic breathing and movement, and cognitive restructuring... finding wellness and stability.

I work with individuals, parents, and couples. I am particularly experienced in working with men struggling with anxiety and depression, trauma, relationship challenges, addiction, and life transitions. Couples trying to get through persistent conflict, working toward greater intimacy, or learning how to part-ways consciously will find support with me.

I will listen carefully, without judgement, for what's going on beneath the content of your stories, hoping to assist you in finding clarity and direction as you make healthy changes in your life... let's get started.
