I welcome all life experiences, including lesbian, gay, transgender, bisexual, and questioning clients, clients from varying ethnicities and race, religion, socio-economic, age, body shape, size, and ability.
One of the most unifying truths is that we all seek to live our lives in relative peace. For many of us, however, this peace is elusive. Past experiences, health concerns, and feelings of isolation because of unsupportive social norms or a lack of positive relationships can make our realization of our desired life feel impossible. Counseling is an avenue for exploration, clarity in values and desires, and a safe place of committed support. Together, we can find and strengthen your innate ability to move beyond the obstacles that stand in the way.

I am a strong believer that people flourish when they have all of the resources to do so. Making the decision to go to therapy and getting started in the counseling process can be challenging. I enjoy working with adolescents, tweens, and young adults as they navigate life's challenges.

Most of our mental/physical/emotional/spiritual disturbances are a result of unresolved grief/trauma. 3. Embracing both Light and Shadow within and without creates a full spectrum for life. 4. A creative process in therapy works for me and my clients. 5. Tears and laughter are both necessary to heal. I have the appropriate credentials for holding space.

I am currently not taking new clients but you can still call or email to be added to the waitlist. Hello, my name is Kai. I believe that humans experience problems or dilemmas throughout their lifetime that lead us to feel overwhelmed, anxious and depressed. Sometimes old wounds just can’t seem to heal on their own. Often we feel stuck between wanting to do something, yet getting caught in patterns of ineffective behaviors meant to protect us. This is when it may be helpful to have someone support you through this process.

If you have engaged in therapy in the past and are looking for a new experience, welcome. If you have no idea what you are looking for, welcome! Often times, clients that I work with decide to engage, or rengage, in therapy because an issue surfaced in their life that they could not navigate on their own. Other times, clients feel satisfied in their lives, and are looking to explore the hidden crevices of their psyche for more optimal relationships.

I believe that everyone is born with a true authentic self. This self sometimes gets wounded during childhood/adolescence. We may be hurt by family members and other trusted adults; the very people we need for love and attunement. Our innate trust gets lost and this burden carries into adulthood making it difficult to trust others and ourselves. I can help guide you back to your true authentic self, one that is confident and at peace.

Almost all couples go through phases when they're not as intimate as they could be. I coach people to solve very simple problems so that they can connect and feel excited about their relationship again. It's tough to live without physical closeness, touch or connection. You want a passionate relationship - not just a functional but unsatisfying friendship. The problem is, when you think about your options it's hard to imagine anything that might help. You undoubtably feel hurt and misunderstood - even if your partner is a great person. You might be looking at the challenge of a breakup or divorce. Is it worth it to stay committed?

When we begin noticing that some part of our Self is getting in the way of goals, health, and livelihood, we begin to search for the place this reactivity resides. Why do I get angry/irritable for seemingly no reason? What inside of me is driving this depression that takes over? Why do I keep having nightmares and flashbacks? Why do I worry when I don't need to? Something deep inside erupts through the surface and we find ourselves somewhere in between confused, out of control, in some sort of pain, and alone. Treading these waters is hard!

I know it seems impossible at times, but you have the ability to change and grow, have healthy relationships, and be more in tune with yourself. Sometimes we just need a little (or maybe a lot!) of extra help. We are built for connection...to people, land, culture...and the hard things we experience can interrupt how well we function in our relationships with ourselves and others.
