My usual client is going through a crisis, often about sexuality, gender, depression, self-harming, anxiety, relationship issues, mood swings, behavior problems, substance abuse, family conflict or school/career problems. Clients also see me when they want depth therapy for inner work/personal growth. If you haven't been coping well or it's been hard to ask for help, I can help you work through this difficult time. If you want to become your most authentic self and find meaning and passion in your life, let's figure out how to get you there.

My direct and conversational approach works well with clients who have tried therapy before with limited or temporary success. I love working with creative, artistic people who are struggling to find purpose, direction, passion, motivation and meaning in life.

My therapy style is radically authentic, meaning that I participate in your therapy as myself. I'm not a blank slate or wearing any masks. I'm an active participant in the therapy room, who joins you for the duration of treatment to facilitate needed changes.
