"I’m a big believer that therapy doesn’t have to be buttoned-up or artificial. It should be comfortable and real. I prefer to facilitate a casual, collaborative, & affirming environment where we can openly discuss anything that’s on your mind and empower you to explore who you are and how you relate to others. I work with individuals, couples, open/polyamorous relationships, and adult families. In addition, I specialize in working working with athletes, e-sports athletes, musicians, and fellow therapists.

Whether romantic, interpersonal, peer, parent-child, or work relationships I have found that the issues people bring to therapy stem from difficulties in connecting. Furthermore, I believe that a safe, open, and honest relationship in therapy is the key to personal mental health and creating healthy relationship's in one's life.

"I use a nonjudgemental, strength-based approach to help people identify and change unwanted patterns and problems in their lives. Some people come to me because they want to better understand and change their relationship to alcohol and/or other drugs. Couples often reach out to me because of violations of trust such as infidelity and deceit from addiction. These problems are particularly challenging to face and talk about. Anger, sadness, shame, and resentments can get in the way, making it difficult to heal, grow, listen, and to love."

" I believe in working towards a world where all people regardless of race, sexual identity, gender, ableism, weight, etc feel they can be their authentic self in the world. There are many societal norms that lead to thoughts and feelings that we label as “bad”. People are meant to feel “othered” if they do not look, talk, or act a certain way. We need to be honest with ourselves and look at how these systemic stereotypes and injustices may be affecting the way we think, feel and behave. I have a passion for social justice and it’s important to me that access to mental health be an equal opportunity for all. "
