"I have had over 10 years experience impacting the lives of children, adolescents and adults with emotional disturbances and often extensive trauma histories. The symptom presentation can range but often the cause is a mixture of biological factors and environmental stress combined with an inability to effectively process and deal with these stresses. I create meaningful working relationships, even when someone may be skeptical of the benefits of therapy. I then work collaboratively to improve coping skills and the ability to handle challenging situations with minimal to no impairment today and in the future."

"My approach to therapy is, first and foremost, about the relationship between therapist and client. I view acceptance, compassion, authenticity, and respect as the building blocks of a therapeutic relationship. People often come to therapy searching for relief from the challenges that detract from joy in their lives, such as stress and depression or struggles in their relationships. I work with clients to build a personal connection that is collaborative, supportive, and challenging, which can ultimately promote growth toward a life that feels more fulfilling and satisfying."

"I believe that we all have deep within us a drive for wholeness and to reach our true potential yet so often we fall short to the point that life can become almost unbearable. For me even with early success in life as a professional athlete, I had already begun on a dark path which began in early adolescence. It took getting sober, a spiritual awakening and intense psychotherapy to get on a path toward healing. As I began the journey back to health I went back to school to become a psychotherapist and have since devoted my life to helping those with similar struggles."

"Life as a teen and young adult has changed! Going through the teen years is challenging enough. But today in a 24/7 social media world, it's even more difficult. The top concerns I see with today's teens are: * Teens always had to maintain their image at school. Now they feel under pressure to maintain their social media image too, constantly comparing themselves to the on-line images of others. * Teens are facing depression and anxiety at alarming rates. Their emotions feel too overwhelming to get out from under. * The pressure to perform is at an all time high and many cannot cope with the anxiety."
