Responsive • Compassionate • Relational

I am a licensed Marriage & Family Therapist and a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor.


My clients reflect the diversity of my community; all genders, orientations, races, backgrounds and issues. I am an LGBT-affirming therapist and specialize in working with and in the community. Through an integrative and relational approach, I specialize in working with addictions and compulsivity, trauma, men and men’s issues, anxiety and depression.


I am trained in EMDR trauma resolution therapy.


Healing is integration. 


I will work to help you integrate your past with your present and your mind with your body. My approach blends developing greater self-awareness with knowledge of how the mind and emotions work, to empower you to create change in your life. I strive to help you learn to better appreciate, understand and express your emotions.  And I hope to lead you to self-compassion and a more mindful awareness of your life and lived experience. I want to help you build a life you love, with meaning and an enhanced ability to cope, adapt and thrive. 


When you are ready to reach out, I will be here. Call me and let’s talk about how you’re struggling, and how I can help. I look forward to hearing from you.
