About

“At times, life seems like a deep-dark hole, but really it’s a tunnel, and if we walk together, we’ll reach one end or the other.” Fr. G. Boyle, Homeboy Industries. We live in challenging times; it may help to talk with someone to try and make sense of it all. I’ve experienced the positive effects of having a trained professional in my corner. My hope is to pay that forward and support you in reconnecting to your genuine strengths. I believe each person has the key to their own wellness and success. So ask yourself, if life could be different tomorrow, what would it look like?
My mission is to provide strength-based, solution-focused, and client-directed therapy to individuals facing complex problems. I use a life-recovery based model, to support an individual in reconnecting to their wellness, hopes, and dreams. I specialize in men's issues, life-transitions, and relationship issues. I believe we are all a work in progress. :)
We can try to identify how everyday losses affect you, explore and establish purpose that gets you out of bed in the morning. Ultimately, develop a tool belt of skills to help you face life’s transitions and see that positive change is entirely possible. Let’s walk together. For more information, check out my website and/or give me a call. :)
