I view psychotherapy as a collaborative process between therapist and client, an encounter between equals, where the relationship itself is healing. My style is active, creative, and holistic. I will meet you where you are, not-judging, engaged and curious. I work with clients who struggle with anxiety, depression, trauma, shame, relationship distress, life transitions, and existential dilemmas (questions about the meaning of life, questions about dying and death). I also have experience working with individuals struggling with dual diagnosis (addiction and mental health issues combined).

The theoretical approaches that I use in my work are: Humanistic (Gestalt, Client Centered, and Existential), Holistic/Integrative, Relational, and Transpersonal. Although I am grounded in clinical training and theory, I work from intuition and lived experience. I value authenticity and transparency, and strive to bring that to all my interactions.

A 25-year career as a first responder supplied me with a deep reservoir of life experience, and a strong belief in the resilience of the human spirit. Interests include: intimacy/attachment issues, substance use and behavioral process addictions, anxiety, depression and body image issues. LGBTQ kink, and poly friendly.
