Life can be difficult. It’s easy to become overwhelmed and to lose our sense of well-being and security. We look around each day and wonder why other people seem to have no trouble living life free from the sort of difficulties with which we struggle. We can begin to feel hopeless. But there is something inside each and every one of us, something beautiful and strong that cannot be touched by our trauma and recurring troubles, but can be obscured by them. Reconnecting with this part of ourselves in a safe, healing atmosphere can help us meet life’s challenges with a greater measure of peace with ourselves and the world.

As someone who identifies as QUEER, I've done the work myself, and will bring my expertise and experience to our sessions. People can change if they are willing to. Perhaps you grew up in an environment that tamped down your optimism and served you limiting beliefs about yourself and the world. Trauma, failures, and heartbreak may have limited your ability to excel or embrace yourself fully. By constructing a more accurate, compassionate, and hopeful narrative about your life, you can make new choices for yourself, practice new ways of living, and eventually change how you think, feel, relate, and achieve.

As a 3rd generation social services worker, I often joke that I was born into this field. I cannot imagine myself in any other profession. This is all I have ever wanted to do. With that being said, I was also born into a society that often refuses to accept the necessity for therapy. Especially for men and people of color. Part of my aim as a clinician is to dispel some of the bias towards seeking help for mental health issues. If you had an injured limb, you would seek out help. If you had contracted a virus, you would seek out help. Why should seeking out help for emotional and mental illness be any different? It should not!

As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I have extensive experience working with individuals who are struggling with anxiety, depression, helplessness, and need additional tools to cope with daily stressors and overwhelming thoughts or feelings. In the fast-paced world we live in, we are constantly facing heightened feelings of stress that can be caused by workplace, parenting, family, couple or other relationship conflicts. Unfortunately, for many, alcohol or drugs is used to “manage” difficult times. It is my goal to help clients navigate their most complex feelings and to provide the tools and skills needed to help them thrive.

"Holler if you hear me." Rap legend, Tupac Shakur, pled for the world to signal back to him that his thoughts, feelings and experiences were being heard. To verify that he was not crazy or out of control. So many of us have been silenced, taught to bury our truths and to hide from ourselves. Such practices develop mental, emotional and physical illnesses that then impact generations to come. People need a safe place to release, to connect and to explore the depths of which they were taught not to venture. No matter the age or magnitude of issues, it is vital for you to speak your mind and for empathy to be returned.

The world is a noisy, busy place, and I believe that therapy can create a space to slow down and allow for you to be heard and supported. People are fascinating and everyone is dealing with some level of struggle and discomfort. I’m not afraid to dig into the uncomfortable through patience, empathy, acceptance, and thoughtfulness with a side of tough love, laid back attitude, humor, and out-of-the-box approaches. My specializations include trauma, crisis, anger management, anxiety, depression, survivor’s guilt, everyday life stressors, and self-image/perception issues.
