I am affirming of transgender and non-binary people and enjoy supporting and exploring personal identity and experience.
As a therapist, my goal is to walk alongside clients as we explore their unique experiences and struggles. I believe that people have innate creative abilities when it comes to healing and self-understanding. Sometimes stress and trauma can block or limit our ability to connect to that innate skill. I utilize relational and strengths-based approaches and support people’s understanding of their own self and path. My therapy background revolves around trauma, attachment, and growth in parenting/caregiving. I enjoy working with parents/caregivers of children with complex social, behavioral, relational, and developmental needs.

I am a transgender male and have worked with the LGBTQA communities for many years.
It takes courage to start therapy. You've probably tried a number of ways to do this yourself. You want to feel better, more in control and not be so bothered by certain people, things, and past events. That is exactly what I am trained and experienced in helping people do.

Most of us carry around stories about who we are and who we should be without really knowing how we got them or if we want to keep them. Therapy is a place to gently explore and unpack these narratives. My clients want to like and understand themselves more, have better relationships, and feel more hope and possibility in their lives. They are determined and brave, but often have been trying things that aren't working or leave them more stuck. I believe every person has an innate capacity to heal, but sometimes trauma and life experiences can block those pathways and make life feel narrow and small.

I hold a deep belief that we all have an enduring drive toward wholeness in the ways we attempt to manage life's events as they happen to us. As we grow up and older, the ways we learned to cope with those events often stop working for us. We hold onto those tactics because they are what we know how to do. What troubles us (fear, anxiety, depression, anger, chronic pain or illness - and more) is our coping strategies fail to prevent past traumas coming up in life again and again to haunt us. We can be free of those and experience happiness, peace of mind, and know what it is to have purpose and meaning.

Within all of us, is a desire to feel at ease with who we are, and to feel a true sense of belonging. Our sense of belonging emerges as we skillfully attend to our whole selves, including unique strengths and challenges. I support clients in doing this by establishing a solid foundation of trust and connection. From this grounded and accepting place, clients are able to grow in self-awareness and self-compassion. I facilitate clients creatively accessing their internal/ external resources and gifts for greater health, ease and fulfillment in their relationships and lives.

I believe that each person strives to feel contentment and become the best version of themselves. This can mean something different to each person, which is why I enjoy the diversity that each individual brings to therapy. It is exciting to watch the growth that individuals experience with some guidance and support. I specialize working with mood disorders & trauma. Trauma is any experience that has overwhelmed your ability to cope and has impacted how you now perceive yourself and the world around you. We can work together to heal and grow past previous experiences so that you can be the best version of yourself

I work with adolescents and adults who would like to change difficult behaviors and mindsets; people looking to explore different aspects of the self or gain access to more internal balance, connection, and contentment. You may be working through situational hurdles or life transitions; dealing with the impacts of oppression and societal conditioning; feeling unsafe in the world, disconnected from others and your own experience. Depending on your personal needs and goals, we might work together briefly or long term; focusing on solutions and paths forward, and/or unraveling some of the roots of your issues.

I specialize in working with folks struggling with relationship issues (couple, family, etc.) and with major life transitions (moves, job loss, divorce, vocation and career changes, etc.). Often, depression, anxiety, trauma/complex trauma, and other mental wellness challenges show up in these areas. By working collaboratively on your counseling goals, I use research based, collaborative, nonjudgmental, and respectfully engaged approaches to understand your counseling needs and address them at a pace and in a way that's right for you.

Accepting Telehealth clients only- We are living through difficult times and many of us are becoming aware of the things in our lives that aren’t working for us any longer. Some of us may be impacted by old wounds that never had the chance to fully heal; some of us are realizing we aren’t living our lives in a way that aligns with how we want to live. We believe that every person has the capacity to heal and live a life of meaning and positive well-being but that often, many of us do not have the support or skills that we need to make changes in our lives.

Free yourself from the anxiety trap! Anxiety, panic, worry and stress can hold people back from performing in life. It can hold people back in school, from getting the job they want, getting promoted, and flourishing in relationships. Trying to escape anxiety can lead people to doing things they wouldn't normally do. When people are frozen with fear they are not living life fully as their authentic selves. Working with a therapist can break you free from anxiety. I've helped so many people work through these feelings to go on to be more successful in their lives.

You try your best to focus at work and at home, but you can’t concentrate. As soon as you let your guard down, even for a moment, the familiar sense of panic gets it's grip on you. It clouds your mind with fear and makes even the simplest tasks impossible. You’ve experienced some bad situations, but you thought you were over it now. Unfortunately, the painful past isn’t done with you. There’s a cold knot in the pit of your belly that won't go away. Horrible memories play on repeat in your mind. Now it’s affecting every aspect of your life. It’s hard to feel close to anyone. You want to make a change, but it feels so hopeless.

I’m so glad you are here. Do you feel overwhelmed, confused, stuck, anxious, or dissociated? Find yourself shutting people out and pushing them away, or say yes for fear of being alone? Sometimes it’s just easier to do things ourselves, to hold it all. We often spend so much time protecting ourselves from pain that we feel like we are not really living. Humans are hardwired to focus on the negative aspects of life for survival; even when there is some good, we push the positive away or have a hard time accepting it.
