If you are looking for a therapist who will help you explore your childhood and early relationships, to understand your current challenges, I would be a great fit. I help my patients recognize their strengths, while supporting them as they examine their life patterns. Through our collaboration, patients will decide what changes they want to make. Patients often say that in our work they realize aspects of themselves that they previously underappreciated, and they recognize that these aspects do not need to be changed but can instead be celebrated.

Maybe you need the healthy integration from your psychedelic work, to address your mental health and personal growth. Life can be overwhelming. Whatever the problem- relief is in your reach. I want to help you work towards reclaiming your life, your family, and a healthy future.

Sometimes life just happens. Maybe everything is great, except for that one thing that keeps getting in the way. Or perhaps life hasn't been good for a long time. You are hurting, and you need someone to just listen and help you make sense of it all. Whether it's a road bump or a boulder, come, let's talk. I offer a listening ear, kindness and compassion during those times when life is complicated or when you need that someone to help you focus on your goals and changes you want to make. I look forward to meeting you.

Therapy is not education or advice-giving. People are unique, so elements of therapy are tailored because healing is different for everybody. My treatment approach is an atmosphere were you can speak your mind safely, to someone who listens, listens intelligently, and cares is important. I believe a successful counseling experience depends on the therapists ability to understand and respect the unique concerns, background, and context of each patient. I am committed to achieving such an understanding in every counseling relationship.

Throughout life everyone experiences varying degrees of struggle which often feel completely unmanageable when we try to brave it alone. The shame and embarrassment that can be associated with asking for help can be paralyzing and can leave us writhing in pain and feeling alone. When in reality, the ability to recognize the need for support is something that should be celebrated and admired. If you are brave enough to reach out, you deserve a safe space of non judgment, empathy, compassion and understanding where you can sort through your concerns and learn the skills to eventually better manage them on your own.

Life can bring many challenges and difficulties for children, adolescents and young adults to navigate. Maybe they are experiencing emotional and/or behavioral challenges due to trauma, stress and pressures, family troubles, being misunderstood, or fear of unknowns. Maybe they are feeling like they just do not fit in anywhere and have a negative self image; or maybe they have difficulty using their voice to express themselves in an effective and healthy manner. Young people desire to be seen, heard, and understood. I empower young people to discover their resilience and improve their emotional wellbeing.

I approach treatment from a worldview that believes individuals are unique and gifted, created with meaning and purpose, and made to have a relationship with God and others. Because of brokenness in ourselves and in the world, we experience conflict and struggle, often severe enough to impact our ability to function each day and find joy in living. When we are able to understand our experiences in context of what is true, healing begins.
