I am a licensed professional counselor with nearly a decade of post-graduate clinical experience with the young and young-ish adult population. I’m also a human being who’s living in this beautiful, challenging, predominantly patriarchal world, just like you. Toxic masculinity hurts all of us in various ways. Talking about (and learning to talk about) your feelings and experiences is a positive act of rebellion against those harmful social norms. You deserve more. When you work with me, you can expect a warm and collaborative environment filled with radical acceptance, gentle challenge, and a podcast recommendation or two. Laughter is often involved, and tears may be, too. All is welcomed.
My goal as a therapist is to bear witness to each client’s unique experiences as they see them, help them to better understand their own perceptions, and uncover the inherent strengths of each individual in a warm and supportive environment. I aspire to help each client gain the skills that work best for them to navigate the challenges of life and create a therapeutic space ideal for self exploration.
In building a trusting therapeutic relationship, I hope to empower clients to learn more about themselves, their personal history, their relationships, and to learn the skills necessary to meet their needs. I believe a supportive and challenging space is key to processing through each of these things and to meeting a client’s personal goals.
It is my belief and practice that we are more than our limited thinking minds. If you have tried other traditional therapies and find them lacking, you may find my Transpersonal, Jungian, and Mindfulness-based Cognitive Behavioral approach to be of benefit.
We all experience such a complex range of emotions and yet not all of us are taught how to talk about and process our feelings. As a therapist, I strive to hold a safe, warm, accepting space for my clients to experience growth and transformation.

I thrive to create a space that is safe and nonjudgmental for clients as they discover their genuine selves and create goals for being present with their loved ones. Registered as a board-certified Art Therapist (ATR-BC), I believe that creativity and art-making help to communicate, explore, and connect within one’s self and with their environment. I also specialized in individuals who have experienced trauma, including but not limited to interpersonal trauma, significant losses, and PTSD. Remote therapy only.
