My Ideal Client

Are you looking to transcend cycles of anxiety, depression, or conflict? Are you ready to reconnect with spontaneity, joy, and belonging? My ideal client values feeling connected and building stronger relationships, starting individually and expanding outward. I help clients find patterns they are ready to leave behind. We'll learn why they developed and what wounds they protect. With couples, I help folks improve intimacy and feel seen. I also provide families tools for cohesion and fun.

My Background and Approach

My approach to therapy is grounded in the belief that we all deserve happiness, purpose, and strong relationships. I can help you find the resources for healing and change that you already possess and help you discover new ones. Through our work together, we’ll make connections, experiment with new ways of being, and say or hear things that have gone unsaid or unheard. Let’s build the life you want - one full of connection, groundedness, and love. I hold a Master's in Marriage and Family Therapy from the Lewis & Clark Graduate School of Education and Counseling. There I received specific training in helping couples create more equitable relationships and satisfying intimacy, addressing the unique needs of men and boys in the predominantly female therapy world, and acting as a facilitator and witness to help clients find deeper purpose and meaning in their lives. I have extensive training in mindfulness, anti-racism, and trauma-informed care.

Why I am a Good Fit for You

Throughout our lives, we learn behaviors to cope and feel safe. Perhaps a part of you became a perfectionist to protect a part that fears rejection. Over time, patterns like this can become entrenched, inhibiting our growth and even causing the very pain they were meant to prevent. I can help you identify these patterns and the parts of yourself they protect. Through curiosity and compassion, we can loosen their grip and even befriend them. Emotions signal what’s important for us to notice. Acknowledging your own emotions and the emotions of others promotes healing and connection. Easier said than done! I use techniques that help individuals and couples slow down, sit with feelings, and gain language to better understand/communicate them. I believe that it takes practice to really create lasting change. I will often assign simple homework assignments to further the growth you experience during sessions and provide us more data to work with in future sessions.

Techniques I Use

  • Internal Family Systems (IFS) External link

  • Attachment Theory External link

    Emotions are the currency of attachment. Emotions signal what’s important for us to notice, both for ourselves and in relationship. Attuning to your own emotions and the emotions of others promotes healing and connection. Easier said than done! I use techniques that help individuals and couples slow down, sit with feelings, and gain language to better understand/communicate them. Through this process I help clients foster more secure and satisfying relationships.

  • EMDR External link

    Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) is a research-backed technique that helps clients feel less distress associated with trauma and painful memories. In fact, after only a session or two, most people feel significantly better about the memories that they process with a trained EMDR therapist. EMDR works through video chat and can be combined with other therapeutic techniques as part of a holistic treatment plan.

Issues I Treat

Specialties

  • Anxiety External link

    I have extensive experience working with anxiety both as a client and a therapist. In my experience, anxiety is almost always a symptom of another issue, one that perhaps remains beneath consciousness. I am trained in mindfulness and somatic techniques that can enable us to reduce the frequency and intensity of anxiety while we work to excavate its roots.

  • Men's Issues External link

    Both women and men suffer because of patriarchal systems that reinforce toxic masculinity. Many men are led to believe that masculinity itself is toxic. This, of course, is untrue and leaves men feeling even more isolated, ashamed, and confused. So what does "positive" masculinity look like? What does it mean to be a good man? I work with male-identifying folks both individually and in men's groups to explore these questions in a safe, gender-affirming, healing space.

  • Relationship / Marriage Issues External link

    I believe that strong relationships are fundamental to happiness and satisfaction. You have the ability to build and maintain intimacy and you can improve your skills with practice (I give homework!). Good therapy helps you understand what you and your partner are feeling and respond appropriately. I have training in emotionally focused therapy, a technique that hones couples’ attachment skills and communication. I am a kink, poly, and queer friendly therapist.
