About

I want you to imagine leaving your home in the morning, navigating the busy roads to work. You’re tired, barely focused and dreading the day ahead. You pull into the parking lot of your employer, taking a deep breath. You grab your work things and walk towards the office. You stop, frozen in the sea of mental waves, a thousand thoughts crashing into one another, unable to organize them. Everything stops for a moment, a beacon of clarity forms in the distance and you’re able to hear one calm thought. You ask yourself “am I on the right path?”
We all ask ourselves this question at some point in our lives. Trauma, depression, anxiety, relationship problems can amplify everyday stress. You’re not alone on this journey. Like a samurai with no master – RONIN – you can find a new lease on life, be the warrior you were meant to be, living an honorable, courageous and purposeful life.
I can help you find your true path. I use evidence based and non-traditional practices to generate a plan as a team. I will help you tackle the things that hold you back from your best life. I use humor, but can be serious. I make therapy convenient and easy. Featuring a 24/7 online scheduling and the ability to do online sessions.
