About

I am an MSW student intern working with adolescents and adults to heal the effects of childhood trauma & other adverse childhood experiences. Being raised in abusive, chaotic, or neglectful environments can result in anxiety, depression, panic attacks, physical debilitation, self-esteem issues, relationship/codependency issues, addictions & compulsions, and critical judgment towards oneself and others. I work with a wide diversity of clients, but as a gay man experienced in working with LGBTQ+ individuals, I'm particularly interested in helping others heal from the compounding wounds of homophobia and other social oppression.
I am an Internal Family Systems (IFS)-informed practitioner, and I commonly use a “parts” modality with clients. I have my own 12 Step program history, I am intimately familiar with 12 Step culture, and I routinely bring the Adult Children of Alcoholic/Dysfunctional Families (ACA/ACoA) model of healing into my practice (reparenting, inner child work).
I’ve studied Tibetan-style meditation/mindfulness and bring a grounded, person-focused approach to supporting others. I believe that health and well-being are cultivated through self-care - by learning to become one’s own compassionate caregiver. I see it as part of my job to find the healing language and therapeutic approach that will work best for you.
