Welcome, you made it here! This is a wonderful first step in your path to healing. Most of us have experienced a range of life changing events, so I understand how hard it is to process and recover from these types of moments. The beauty about being human is that we have the ability to make changes to our lives in order to heal. I practice from a trauma-informed perspective and have experience in a variety of areas, but primarily, my focus is with men’s issues, mood/stress concerns, athleticperformance/recovery, and relationships. I am passionate about promoting healing to those facing adversity, unexpected outcomes, and injustice.

 

I approach counseling based on what my client needs and I adapt to what fits them best. As your therapist, you can expect to find a collaborative approach that is inviting, direct, personable, respectful, and empathetic.

Life can sometimes feel like a treacherous journey. There are unexpected twists, consisting of highs and lows. As a counselor, I want to walk with you on this path and be there with you on your peaks and in your valleys. Whether dealing with anxiety, depression, adjustment issues, or anything in between, I hope to help each client find a healthy balance that fits his or her lifestyle.
