I am a trauma-focused, mindfulness-based therapist with a strong relational approach.
I am not accepting new clients. I specialize in helping you find a joyful, balanced, and grounded life. I believe the most effective route to change and healing is through connection - both within yourself and in relationships with others. I find this especially true now. Navigating transitions, relationships, and challenges can be complicated - and anxiety and depression make things difficult. In sessions we address painful feelings and experiences, resulting in increased happiness and better relationships. We will work together to uncover your authentic self, build tools to create change, and tune into your innate resiliency.

I'm often told that I'm easy to talk to. I have had my own struggles and I know how scary it can feel to be so vulnerable and uncertain of who to trust. I'm honored to have worked with so many people over the years in the most dire of circumstances and to have witnessed them transform their experiences into a life of purpose. I have worked extensively with teens, families and women in crisis. I have worked with many people suffering from schizophrenia and other related disorders. This was an eye opening experience in understanding how the mind works.

Let’s face it… IT’S HARD TO BE A MAN. We live in a time when many men are unlikely to ask for help, refusing to acknowledge past wounds that stand in the way of their deepest potential. I have worked extensively with men’s issues and male adolescents suffering the effects of limiting beliefs, life struggles, depression, anxiety, sex addiction and sexual trauma. Helping men of all ages overcome the blocks that keep them disconnected from themselves or their partners; whether it is being stuck in a frustrating cycle of repeating the same mistakes over and over to struggling with infidelity, porn addiction or sexual trauma.

I am also passionate about the use of mindfulness and yoga as a treatment for substance use disorders and complex trauma.
As a young adult seeking direction - confusion and emotional pain is normal. Depression and anxiety can make change feel impossible, as if nothing good will ever happen. On the outside things might look ok but the inside feels very wrong. Struggling alone without a connection to someone that can help is a sad and lonely place to be. Quick sources of pleasure from our phones or out of bottles often turn into self-destructive habits. We start to see these mis-guided attempts to help ourselves only make things worse. Addictions that seem unstoppable can sometimes become the only way to cope.

Faith transitions/journeys, religious trauma, sex therapy, and sexuality. I can (and do) talk about these topics all day. Any one of these issues can seem overwhelming and impossible to deal with. As a therapist who has dealt with these issues myself, I bring both professional and personal experience to help you move forward. I know every person's story and life is unique and I won't project my experiences on you. However, you won't have to explain the "Mormon lingo" or worry that I won't understand the unique issues queer individuals face in a heteronormative world.

Have you found yourself feeling uncertain, confused, or even overwhelmed about life? If so, you are not alone. Each of us is doing the best we can to feel peace, stability, and satisfaction in our lives. In our ongoing journey to reach these states, it is easy to forget that seemingly negative emotions such as sadness, anger, and frustration are also vital to our lives as human beings. As life gets us down, it is sometimes easy to go on “autopilot” to avoid the pain we feel from relationships, trauma, and everyday living; however, living on autopilot means that we also miss the beauty and joy of being alive.

Our hearts long for authentic connection to ourselves and others - and the sense of aliveness that results from being truly ourselves as we relate. Sometimes, however, reactive patterns arise and displace our competent adult functioning with unregulated emotional states such as anxiety, anger, insecurity, or depression. Often there is no context or overt memory associated with such experiences, which are thought to have their roots in insufficient neural organization. Our neural organization, as it turns out, can adapt and change, giving us access to more and more emotional freedom and contentment.

My approach to therapy is empathic, collaborative, and unique to each individual's own needs. I believe the most important component of effective counseling is a genuine relational connection. I strive to create a therapeutic environment in which clients feel comfortable, respected, supported, and understood so that they may actively explore personal issues and experiment with new ways of thinking and behaving. Too often we spend our lives living either in the past or in the future, and consequently struggling with feelings of depression or anxiety.
