I enjoy working with clients of all ages that are motivated and eager to learn and accept positive change. I believe it is important for clients to feel a connection with their therapist, therefore my approach is to provide a safe and comfortable space to allow for disclosure and containment.

I am accepting new clients! I work with people who want to experience more joy, calm, fulfillment, and connection, yet feel stuck in states of emotional overwhelm, fear, panic, emptiness, or feelings of disconnection. You may have specific goals you want to work on in therapy, or not know exactly what direction you want to move in, just know something has to change. I will bring a calm energy to the therapy session. I will support you in making desired changes in your life, processing traumatic experiences, or finding acceptance using therapeutic approaches such as EMDR, mindfulness-based talk therapy, and somatic techniques.

A catalyst may be a person or a thing that precipitates a change. When you see the change, you can be the change! As a licensed clinical social worker I have worked with children, adolescents, adults, groups and families in the areas of trauma and resilience, anxiety, depression, as well as grief and loss. As a member of the gay community, a presenter and writer in this field, I have worked with folks that are moving toward being fully integrated in their lives. Matching what we know about our inner selves with our outer selves and celebrating ourselves within our communities, may require some assistance along the way.

Therapy can be transformational and life altering. Therapy begins by building a safe and trusting relationship with the client and then addressing layers of behaviors, beliefs and perspectives that no longer serve their life. If you want a life worth living and need guidance to create the life you want, I can help. With over 10 years of experience, my greatest joy is to watch a client recognize their worth, embrace who they are, believe in their strength and recognize that life has more to offer than they could ever conceive.

Sometimes, finding hope and purpose can be really difficult. Whether it’s depression, anxiety, relationship issues, teenager adjustments, or even an addiction, the storms of life can be challenging, but you don’t have to weather those storms alone. Everyone deserves to feel hope…everyone deserves to live life with purpose. As a counselor, I've had the privilege of walking with hundreds of people through heavy and often overwhelming seasons in their lives. One of the many things I've learned is that your past does not need to define your future. Restored health, hope, and purpose can be your reality.

These last few years of the pandemic have been very difficult for most people. I have seen a surge in anxiety, depression, loneliness, stress on marriages and family relationships, health issues, and loads of despair and grief. The pandemic has seemed to push some of these issues to the front and center for people and they can no longer be avoided or dismissed. It is a sensitive time for people to begin addressing their need for help. It can be so overwhelming and difficult to know how to begin talking about it - especially with someone who is a stranger such as myself.

You have been sitting with your thoughts and seem to recycle your memories. You are excellent at suppressing your hurt and stay busy with work and life as a distraction. You no longer connect with others the way you used to and keep friends and family at a distance. The Pandemic may have increased your anxiety and depression and you are uncertain where to begin. Your worry and fear come out as; anger, sadness and controlling behaviors, due to questioning your worth and self esteem. Will I ever feel truly happy? Will I feel truly loved? Will I find my life path and the career that makes my soul soar? Will I learn to forgive?

The last few years have been incredibly difficult. Life has been overwhelming, discouraging, and confusing. Maybe you've felt sad, disappointed or pulled in too many directions. You may experience fear that seems to bubble up out of nowhere. Perhaps nightmares are interrupting your sleep. Maybe you're dealing with addiction or someone you love is using drugs or alcohol. These experiences can leave you feeling alone, scared and misunderstood. You probably don't let those around you know that you are not ok.
