I am trained in Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) and Traumatic Incident Reduction (TIR), both of which provide alternative ways of coping with trauma .
I believe everyone has a voice that is worthy of being heard and that everyone is worthy of feeling seen. But it is not uncommon to believe that our voice does not matter and that our words are insignificant. My goal is to empower you to use your voice and help you identify, and communicate, unmet needs. I will help you recognize your patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving, and work with you to improve these patterns so you can have a better relationship with yourself and others. I believe that we can only connect with another person to the extent we are willing to connect with ourselves. Let me help you connect.

My approach is strengths-based, client-centered, and trauma -informed.
The decision to engage in therapy requires strength, courage, and a commitment to one's own growth and healing. Our past, present, and future can have a significant effect on mood, behaviors, perceptions, and relationships. Anxiety, depression, and traumatic experiences can manifest as uncomfortable physical symptoms along with feelings of loneliness, sadness, irritability, worthlessness, and guilt. I provide a safe and caring environment for clients to discover their strengths and reach their goals.

I work with those who have endured addiction, trauma , or life-changing events. I walked this road personally and professionally. I work with life or career change. Sometimes this is due to a "dark night of the soul" event and other times it is simply a desired change in career or the hobbies, values and goals in their personal life. Life transition can be an exciting, yet difficult experience. I am in network with Aetna, United, Cigna, Oxford, Oscar Health, and Magellan. My style is direct and task-oriented when needed, in times such as career change, addictions. I am supportive and subtle when working with trauma .

Being raised in abusive, chaotic, or neglectful environments can result in anxiety, depression, panic attacks, physical debilitation, self-esteem issues, relationship/codependency issues, addictions & compulsions, and critical judgment towards oneself and others. I work with a wide diversity of clients, but as a gay man experienced in working with LGBTQ+ individuals, I'm particularly interested in helping others heal from the compounding wounds of homophobia and other social oppression.

Telehealth. Accepting new clients. Some evenings available. My approach is solution focused to help clients release emotions from traumas. My approach is gentle. As "stuck" emotions are released, many people report feeling lighter and more relaxed. Past traumas, upsetting memories, and dissociation can make a person question their abilities to make decisions. Without support to heal those past memories, many people feel stuck and unable to make decisions. As an expert in trauma release, I will help support you on your healing path. Are you ready to move forward? Send me an email to set up an introductory call.

“I’m fine” is the one of most common lies we hear. It's ok not to be ok. We are often shamed for being broken instead of asked how we fell apart. For sixteen years I suffered from an eating disorder that ultimately inspired my studies to help others who felt anxious, depressed, and insecure. Trauma is a fact of life but it does not have to be a life sentence. Humans are very resilient. Artwork is just like our ever-evolving journey; we are always learning, growing, and surprised by life. My focus is primarily client-centered; however, I use an eclectic approach to meet the needs of my clients.

I use a variety of methods, including CBT, mindfulness, and parts work, but I specialize in a trauma treatment called EMDR.
Is your inner critic running the show more often than not? Do you have trouble believing in yourself or taking action that you know would help you grow? My clients come to me because they are not sure how to move through blocks that are keeping them stuck. My job is to provide them with tools to access their deepest wisdom. By exploring past hurt, learning self-compassion, and reconnecting with themselves, my clients (re)discover their most confident, secure, and fulfilled sense of self.
