My work with children and youth emphasizes the roles of free play and family involvement in healing, self-expression, and healthy development.

With advanced training in relational psychodynamic therapy, I specialize in trauma informed mental health treatment based on the development of a strong therapeutic relationship. My goal is to create a comfortable and judgment free therapeutic space within which children, youth, and adults can explore, heal, and grow.

Using attachment frameworks, Internal Family Systems, EMDR, and somatic approaches, I support people in coming home to their bodies and emotional selves, and in creating brave relationships in which they are witnessed deeply and meaningfully, to restore them to their agency and security, and empowering them to live their lives more fully.
I work with people to help them explore, understand, and heal from the ways life has left its imprints upon them— be that from trauma, oppression, or simply the complexity of our messy and beautiful interconnectedness with each other. My approach is creative, humorous and relational. It is rooted in values of anti-oppression, abolitionism, and harm reduction.

I take a strengths-based approach using tools from Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Internal Family Systems (IFS).
Your story is important. Whatever you've experienced, your story deserves to be heard. Dialectically, there is power in that story, and there are times when it can influence our internal beliefs and shape how we navigate and experience life. I believe we are unique in our range and intensity of emotions. Sometimes, emotions take over and make us act in ways we didn't intend to or know ourselves to be. Sometimes, we were never taught the skills to cope, or we can't access skills in the moment. I aim to provide my clients with a space to safely explore their story and behavior patterns so they can create change.

My typical client is trying their best to navigate their lives and feels thrown off course by symptoms of ADHD, depression, anxiety, grief, family conflict or self doubt.
Finding a therapist can be difficult and prioritizing yourself can be even harder. You may be seeking support for feeling overwhelmed, disorganized, or trying to balance too much at once. Or you may be like many people and experience guilt or shame because you think you aren't living up to personal or societal expectations. These all can effect how you feel about yourself, your work and your relationships. It's hard to know where to start and that's why I'm here. Therapy is a space where we can identify what it is you want from life and develop strategies to help you not only cope but also develop proactive ways to help you thrive.

Hey there. If you're reading this you may be wondering "is this guy the right therapist for me?" That is a question I hold dearly. Browsing this website can bring a flurry of emotions when seeking a therapist. It can be tough to find the right fit, and also can be a challenge just to get started. I hope, as you read my profile, there is a chance you may think I can play a role in your mental health journey. The people who tend to seek me for help tend to be people of color, those seeking trauma work, and also people who are "stuck".

Today's life struggles are much different than yesterdays.
