"I specialize in working with professionals who are experiencing distressing life events and may be struggling with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, or relationship issues. Often clients come to me feeling lost or not knowing where to begin. I welcome clients as they are; offering genuine warmth and a judgment-free space to help them gain clarity and direction. With compassion and respect for my clients' stories, together we begin understanding emotions, restructuring unhelpful thinking patterns, identifying solutions, and establishing more positive lifestyle habits. Often one small change can set a series of bigger changes in motion."

I specialize in seeing men who are experiencing anxiety, depression, relationship issues, issues around coming out, and career dissatisfaction. One of the things these symptoms are often tied to is not having complete clarity about who we are and what we want our lives to be about.
