My nineteen years experience as a therapist working with diverse populations has given me a broad foundation for helping people create significant and lasting change in their lives. In a safe, supportive and challenging environment, we will focus on the issues and goals you bring while also building awareness about how your personal history influences the way you experience your life in the present. By becoming aware of unconscious patterns in your thoughts, feelings and relationships, you develop an increased capacity for meeting your needs, coping with difficulties and living more fully.

Do life's questions take hold of you? Does life itself become questionable? You may struggle to articulate this, let alone discuss it with others. It may seem unspeakable. Yet we need companionship to uncover and address our deepest questions. They cannot be answered bluntly. They have to be lived, and that takes courage, dialogue, and time. I offer attention, patience, and trusting relation as a way to explore your questions and the concerns in which they are rooted.

Seeking therapy can feel scary, but I believe it is a courageous and empowering step. I believe that everyone can benefit from therapy and that therapy can be a means for personal growth. I have a family systems approach to my counseling, that is, I see how our upbringing shaped and molded us into who we are today. I believe that some of the difficulties we have with others is rooted in the learned relationships we have with our family members.

As a trauma therapist, I believe that personal growth and transformation is vital to the human experience, and that sometimes we need support through this process. Therapy is embarking on a journey, and you are the hero of your story. In meeting with you where you are at in your journey, I will help you to develop your own set of skills to help you through your daily experiences. I also encourage approaching challenges with vulnerability and self-compassion and will assist in practicing these areas in our sessions. Even though painful experiences are inevitable, I believe that suffering does not have to hold us back from living.

Welcome. Are you looking for more joy and better relationships? My training has taught me to help people examine and describe the life they have, identifying areas in which they are "stuck," and reconnect to the life-goals that motivated them. Sometimes this stuckness has to do with certain feelings, sometimes it is about past traumas, often it shows up as repeating patterns in significant relationships, and sometimes it manifests as a malaise in which a direction in life seems impossible to find.

Children experience the same frustrations, anxieties, and fears as adults. But their ability to talk about and understand these feelings is entirely determined by where they are developmentally. The best way for children to share their inner world with adults is through play. I specialize in working with infants and young children as well as their caregivers to work together to learn new skills for managing big feelings and challenging behaviors. I am also available to support expecting mamas, couples or individuals thinking about becoming parents, those struggling with infertility, or individuals experiencing postpartum depression

Personal issues haven't gone away because of COVID-19. Life goes on, but with more acuity. The terror of the invisible threat may be bringing feelings to the surface that you have not previously acknowledged. If there was ever a good time to wake up to your journey, it's now. The petty has been stripped away, leaving us to find meaning, maintain safety, and a sense of wellness and security. I specialize in guiding people to understand their depths, expand their awareness, and bring more connection to their lives -- internally, and in relationship.

Whether you're a teen growing into an independent adult or a young professional working a job in tech, life is never shy about bringing you stress. How do you cope with that stress? As men, we often isolate, hide our emotions, disappear into gaming, work, social media, or exercise, have destructive relationships, and often while putting others before ourselves. Holding in these stresses and trying to "fix it" alone can weigh on your mind, and it can come out in ways that make life harder on you. I can provide a space where we focus on you, and we ask where are things challenging for you, and how can things be better?
