Whether dealing with anxiety, depression, or Gay & Lesbian issues or addictions to alcohol, drugs, or sex, it's such a relief moving from pain, guilt, and shame with a realistic plan that makes sense.
People say my style is different from other counselors. "He's not the kind of counselor who just sits back and says uh-huh every few minutes." I am not shy about giving feedback and responding to my clients. Counseling is a relationship and I strive to create an engaging and healing dialogue from the beginning. Whatever your issue is, if it's not getting better with what you have been doing so far, now is the time to seek assistance. Call me to discuss your concerns and we can decide if I am the right resource for you.

I have extensive experience with providing LGBTQIA + mental health services, gender affirming care, and trauma recovery.
Difficult life experiences and obstacles can impact your ability to thrive - experiencing life as if you're going through the motions without purpose and direction. This can lead to feelings of anxiety, depression, or guilt. You may begin to experience a lack of motivation, feeling out of control, and you may want to avoid or numb the feelings altogether. You would like to feel differently, but you don't know where to begin. Together, we will work on reducing guilt and shame, increasing empowerment, and meeting your personal goals.

One of my passions is working in the LGBT community on gender and sexual identity issues.
As many of us have felt the effects of some form of trauma, I work to create an open, affirming environment where clients feel safe sharing their unique stories, strengths and challenges, without fear of judgment. In my 15-plus years of experience treating adolescents, adults, couples and families, clients have described my style as warm, down to earth and flexible. I draw from Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy models, mindfulness, and other strength-based approaches, to treat an array of disorders including anxiety, depression, as well as issues of trauma (trained in EMDR), and relationship struggles. I am fluent in Spanish.

As a member of the LGBTQ + community I invite you to be courageous and work to start your journey towards becoming your authentic self. Gaining insight into your life can be a complicated process. Most people experience challenging times when dealing with change. Harriet Lerner once said, "What will never change is the will to change and the fear of change. It is the will to change that motivates us to seek help. It is the fear of change that motivates us to resist the very help we seek." If you are feeling a need for change in your life, I invite you to start the process of therapy to change your direction in life.

***LIMITED AVAILABILITY*** When you're in the midst of a life struggle, it can feel as though solutions are hard to come by. The benefit of counseling, is the opportunity to look at the world through a new lens. Tomorrow seems infinitely shinier with the help of a little unconditional kindness. In my years as a counselor, I have found a passion for treating depression. When a client comes to me with the willingness to engage in treatment, I have seen true miracles unfold.

My primary therapy treatment style is emotionally-focused feminist therapy and I am also trained in EMDR and transgender health services (WPATH).
Welcome! I know that taking your first steps into finding a therapist can seem like a daunting task. Every therapist is slightly different, so the most important thing that you can do is to find a therapist who is right for you. Personally, I believe that therapy works best when we are able to work together in a friendly, collaborative environment, where you can feel seen, heard, and known. I also believe that there is no “one size fits all” model, and therefore I tailor my therapy sessions to each client's individual needs.

I enjoy working with a wide range of clients including the military, first responders, couples, teens, individuals, ASD & the Neurodiverse and am LGBTQ + allied.
NOW in Ketchum and Boise. . Sometimes we go through seasons in life, or have a painful event, that can lead to cycles of unwanted behavior and difficulty in relationships. The root cause may be trauma, PTSD, couple and family issues, or difficulty stemming from anxiety, ASD, ADHD or other neurological changes. At the core, therapy is a collaborative process meant to provide space to learn new skills, honor your needs, rebuild safety, and regain control of your goals. Using integrative methods, I encourage clients to gain self-insight, utilize somatic experiencing, and develop inner healing skills.
