The mind, body, and spirit are all connect, and I approach therapy from a holistic and relational perspective.
Our lives can take many different paths, and finding the path that meets our needs and values can be hard to navigate. It can leave us in a place of feeling lost, overwhelmed, broken, and disconnected from our sense of self. This sense of hopelessness can prevent us from seeing the power within ourselves. I would be honored to meet you where you are at, and be your hope holder until you are able to see the hope that is in every situation.

I help develop emotional and relational intelligences, helping men find true meaning and purpose rather than just going through the motions of achieving and succeeding.
I am in the business of helping you become the best version of yourself. Rather than focusing on just your symptoms, I facilitate your personal development and wellness. I explore life narratives, experiences in families, gender roles and cultural systems, but most importantly, I will hear you, see you and provide you a safe and challenging relationship to heal and grow. I consider it a privilege to be a trusted professional with my clients who courageously reveal vulnerabilities while building on their gifts. The path of becoming more conscious--a healthier you--is a path for courageous and bold individuals.

I work primarily from a relational psychodynamic model.
Do you long to experience change in your life? Maybe you're feeling defeated in life, seeking freedom from a shaming voice inside, longing for greater connection in relationships, or facing a significant transition or loss. Whatever you're experiencing, I believe there is no cookie cutter approach to addressing the complex problems of life. I view psychotherapy as a coming alongside journey that creates an open, safe space where you as a whole person and the particulars of your story (including those places where you feel most stuck) can be explored, understood, and worked through to cultivate hope and transformation.

Whether there is a child in need of some help, a couple or nontraditional relational grouping wanting to discuss relationship dynamics, or an individual in stressful life transitions, let’s unpack, explore and work together to move you through the journey of healing, using creative methods like art and play along the way.
Seeking therapy may seem scary because you don’t know who you can be open and honest with. You may be feeling like something isn’t “quite right”, have gone through a trauma, discovering your sexual/gender identity, or perhaps you find yourself worrying more. Often when a culmination of values, ideas, experiences, and parts of your identity no longer “feel like you anymore” it may cause distress. Diversity factors, values, and the people surrounding us impact our metal health. That is why I offer counseling through a queer-affirming, racial, and gender equity lens that acknowledges individuals and the impact of community.

My work goes beyond surface level, exploring the true depth of how my clients’ different relational systems may have influenced them and the way that they are.
I wholeheartedly believe that the different relationships in our lives have consciously and unconsciously influenced us, our cognitions, and have morphed us into the person that we are today, whether we wanted them to or not. I believe that the genuine safety provided by a secure relationship is necessary for individuals to be vulnerable, to grow, and to live their lives as their true, authentic selves. As a therapist, I aim to serve as that sense of stability amongst whatever chaos my clients may be feeling in their internal worlds or facing in their external lives.
