About

As a person recovered from substance abuse and mental health challenges of my own, I have dedicated myself to finding more ways to help others find meaning and direction as the leaders and heroes of their own journey in life. I seek to enrich my perspective with many psychological tools and frameworks as well as different philosophical perspectives on life. I know the most important thing in working with a client is to allow them the agency and autonomy to guide their healing process, and to this end I have sought to study as many modalities as I can in order to remain well equipped in finding the best tools to offer each client.
I never impose what has worked for me on others nor insist that any one way is what is right or best for someone else. My primary goal is to empower my clients to realize their vision of their most quality life. I don’t use labels or diagnoses as placeholders for truly getting to know someone and understanding their life from their perspective.
I know that a trusting relationship is the most important basis of any therapeutic approach, and I promise to bring my imperfect humanness to the table with the most kindness and consideration as I can. The greatest lesson I’ve learned as a therapist is never to forget that we are human beings, and that we relate soul to soul, rather than “role to role”.
