My Approach

**********I am not accepting new patients at this time********** People usually come to therapy because life isn’t working, they feel stuck, or because they want something to shift. Having a non-judgmental, supportive space to think through what feels wrong can be helpful. We are able to make new meaning when someone listens, helps us focus in on what is important, understands our challenges, and grasps who we really are. We begin to understand our own stories and become able to shed new light on older, outdated narratives. We untangle from the repetitive pain we impose on our selves, family, partners, friends, and begin to take charge of our lives. I help people to understand and change long standing behaviors, recover hope and self-confidence, become more self reflective, work through difficult feelings, come to terms with past losses and traumas, find new independence, and improve relationships with their selves and others.

My Background

I work with each of my patients as individually as possible because our culture, race, personal history and unique attributes shape who we are. Every person is different. A successful therapy works best when designed to fit you and your needs. Prior to starting my private practice I worked with a wide diversity of people in a variety of mental health settings including high schools, a suicide hotline, a mobile crisis team, adolescent foster care, a prison facility, and in medical clinics. I also have experience in residential construction/home restoration, as a musician, and a lifelong athlete. These different experiences all inform my approach as a therapist.
