About My Clients

Do you find yourself feeling anxious and overwhelmed? Is it getting harder to enjoy the things you used to love because your energy is drained from feelings and thoughts you just can’t shake? Do you want to find relief and feel connected to yourself and others again? I know what your feeling, and I’m here to support you in feeling like yourself again. Anxiety, depression, and recovering from hard life experiences is tough and can impact your life in ways you didn’t expect.

My Background and Approach

I use holistic models of psychotherapy to empower my clients from just surviving to feeling like they are thriving again. Specifically, I use evidence based experiential models called Internal Family Systems, EMDR, and Emotionally Focused Therapy. Together, we will explore how these tools can help you experience deep change within yourself, and thereby impact important relationships with people in your life. More importantly than the models I use are the relationships I build with my clients based on trust, compassion, and non-judgement. I’ll work with you to build a therapeutic relationship where all parts of you feel seen and heard. Through this process, I’ll be here to support you in exploring and healing vulnerable parts of yourself one step at a time, at a pace that feels right for you.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that we are all capable of finding healing and wholeness no matter the hardships or traumas we have been through. I believe that this healing process is made more difficult by the hardships we endure throughout our lives. In the wake of challenging experiences, we are often left feeling alone and self-critical towards our emotions and thoughts. It is my experience that we don’t live in a culture that understands how to hold compassion and awareness for mental health issues that naturally arise following life’s challenges. Furthermore, for those of us who have one or more marginalized identity, mental health symptoms can feel more complex and isolating. I’m a multi-ethnic male, I love the outdoors, and my values are grounded in social justice, which impacts how I work as a therapist.
