My Ideal Client

You may be reading this for many reasons, and I imagine your reason comes with many layers that are known and unknown at this time. You may be feeling overwhelmed by stress, or insecure about your life; frustrated, hurt, or fearful about your safety or belonging in this life. You may be feeling proud about your choice to seek to improve your life with the help of a professional. You may be feeling and thinking all or none of things. Whatever your reasons, I welcome them.

My Approach to Helping

From my experience, the first thing that will happen is we’ll try to see if we could work well together, or not. That typically is hinted at strongly and quickly, and it’s something we’ll navigate throughout our working relationship. I will frequently check-in to make sure the goals and style of your services with me match your hopes to the best of my ability. So that you know, the styles I was trained in and that I am most comfortable working within are existential-humanistic ways of relating, psychodynamic ways of exploring, and cognitive-behavioral ways of thinking or doing. I also have acquired additional specializations in treating psychological trauma. Some call this form of therapy an “integrative perspective.” Basically, it means I welcome your desire for healing that is special to you, and I will attempt to meet you with the various fields of expertise that I have gained in my short life.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe your life is a gift. But, I am betting that gift of your life has been hard to swallow, often. I am willing to bet further that others have not always seen your life as a gift. I know, for me, life doesn't always or even mostly feel like a gift because life circumstances seem to just be "thrown at me" without asking me permission or checking to see if I’m prepared to receive what life is "throwing". The trick, I think, is to look at that “thrownness” of life as an opportunity to exercise the freedom to choose—whether that is to openly weep about the loss of a loved one, “laugh in the face of danger,” or to set very clear boundaries (and protect those boundaries) to whomever might be trying to take the right to choose away. My hope is that all of us humans come to a place of accepting our life with honest gratitude and honoring our choices to respond to the gift of life with respect and openness. So, I welcome the gift of your life and how you have responded to your life.

Issues I Treat


  • Anxiety External link

    There is an infinite amount of rational life experiences to be wary and careful of. To many people, that reality I just mentioned is overwhelming. It can cause a person to become increasingly preoccupied with preparing for a future that may be threatening in some way or form. And the justifiable, understandable response to that is anxiety. The trick, I believe, is understanding your need to protect yourself and those you care about while balancing ways to relieve your need to protect.

  • Depression External link

    There are many ways to consider depression. Most point to neurobiology: serotonin or dopamine deficiencies. Many say it is a set of behavior habits that are difficult to change. Some say the behaviors of depression is an "anger for the world toward inward," and is perpetuated by self-limiting beliefs and attitudes. Others claim depression is the loss of a personal purpose and meaning in life. All of these approaches get at the big picture, in part, of your suffering. I can help you explore why.

  • PTSD External link

    Our past experiences can haunt us. We can get trapped trying to understand the horror that we witnessed or avoid reliving the terror we once lived. We can get endlessly lost in trying to undo those experiences or prevent any type of those experiences from happening ever again. Ultimately, the challenge of PTSD is grieving what happened in a way that helps us make meaning for our current life and future goals.
