About My Clients

Are you struggling with crippling anxiety? Maybe you're struggling with invasive thoughts or old memories. Maybe you can't stop thinking about your body and worth. Whatever the source of your pain, if you're exhausted and feel like no matter what you do it just doesn't seem to get better, I might be a great fit. Clients who come to see me suffer from a wide variety of issues, from eating disorders, to anxiety disorders, PTSD, OCD, addiction, and more in between. You don't have to hurt alone.

My Background and Approach

Over the past few years I have had the privilege of working in several different settings to get a feel for what I like to work with. I have worked in residential and outpatient settings, as well as being the clinical director of a methadone clinic for a few years. Over that time I have picked up some great tools for my tool box. The two I use the most are Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, or ACT, and Motivational Interviewing, also known as MI. I use these two modalities together to help you figure out what you want most in life and who you want to be, which we collectively call your values. We then learn a new way to interact with your pain, so that you spend less time fighting your emotions and more time living your life in a valued way. In my time working with folks in addiction, eating disorders, and severe cases of anxiety, PTSD and OCD, I have seen these therapies help folks take their lives back from being stuck, and you can too. Give me a shout.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that every person has the ability to take care of themselves. I will never be the expert on you. What I can do is give access to modalities that have helped others before you and listen to your experience to see how it is working. I believe that neuroscience and data are our best guides when it comes to treatment effectiveness, and so I choose my treatments based on what is proven to work. However, when it comes to how a treatment is working FOR YOU, there is no better judge THAN YOU. I believe that everyone is born with equal worth regardless of ethnicity, skin tone, sexual identity, gender identity, or any other identifying factor, but that experiences shape us and should be appreciated and are valid. Black lives matter, love is love. On a much less serious note, for my friends in a galaxy far far away, Greedo shot first.
