I am a psychotherapist who is dedicated to supporting my clients in cultivating a deeper sense of belonging, purpose, and emotional freedom. With a focus on mental health issues, addictions, and relational traumas, I embarked on my professional journey working with young men in early recovery. Since then, I have worked across various levels of care, including detox, acute psych, and intensive outpatient settings. I currently have a few openings in my private practice and would love to offer you a free consultation to see if your needs match with my offerings.

My ideal client aims to engage in an active partnership to build self-awareness and take action to make a change. I will give you feedback and challenge you, which is not everyone’s cup of tea! I work best with those suffering from anxiety, panic attacks, overwhelm, trauma, or emotional flooding. Many of my clients report that our work helped them shift from survival mode to a sense of thriving. I suggest homework; your progress is based on your willingness to practice. The ideal client for my strengths is someone who wants to learn and shift by discovering tangible skills and techniques they can use in their own lives.

I treat adult individuals and couples for relationship difficulties, low self-esteem, and emotional trauma. Healthy, fulfilling relationships that you feel safe in can seem out of reach. Are you tired of not feeling good enough? Maybe you resort to people pleasing and would love to set boundaries with less anxiety. With a significant other, you could feel unseen, like you're alone on an island. Arguing in the same destructive loop creates emotional distance that just keeps growing. By addressing relational issues in therapy, you can significantly reduce conflict, deepen your connections, and feel more confident being authentic.

At times, people just want to have a conversation and we put off going to counseling, because honestly we tell ourselves that this other thing is just a little bit more important, a bit more pressing. We forget to invest in ourselves. Life is tough, there is no doubt about that; but why go through it alone. Let me be that person for you to aid you through those tough times or I can simply be that someone that you talk with.

I offer a safe, fast, and effective combination of hypnotherapy and life coaching to help every client gain relief from mental and physical suffering. Clients are often unsure why they stay stuck in anxiety cycles in their lives, or can't stay on track with their health or their goals. Hypnotherapy is a direct way to uncover the subconscious thought patterns and solve the problem at the source. Inner Freedom Therapy can be used in conjunction with traditional therapy. It works well as a turbo booster to more traditional therapy or as a stand-alone resolution to emotional suffering around life, body, and/or health.

I enjoy working with young adults into their 30s and beyond who are struggling with any level of anxiety or depression. As our world attempts to simplify through technology and continues to change, it brings with it a changing culture and way of life that is not always helpful for our mental health. Many of us tend to put the world on our shoulders, but forget to care for ourselves. The pressure to "be successful" and fit society's expectations and timelines is a lot to carry. Rather than just managing this anxiety, we can figure out what goals and values are truly your own.

An ideal client would present with their struggle in transparency, with the desire to grow, and put in the work to achieve goals. That could be managing emotions, holding a job, rebuilding relationships, or perhaps implementing more self-care. A client who wants to heal, find peace, and promote balance and autonomy. I am very easygoing, and really like to showcase my ability to promote a safe trusting environment. It is okay to feel uncomfortable or overwhelmed in life; I hope to encourage and normalize the need to take care of ourselves.
