About My Clients

Imagine no longer being filled with painful thoughts and feelings and being able to slowly open up to a more meaningful life. Right now, it seems like the pain inside makes each day far more difficult than it needs to be. You feel alone in your hurt and want someone to help you be free of it.

My Background and Approach

I help people find and develop skills that we all have naturally inside of us to live lighter and more meaningfully. We’ll work together to help you deal with painful thoughts and feelings, look at yourself differently, and move toward a life you value rather than just avoiding a life you don’t want. I take our work seriously and want you to find change in your life. I also want our work to hopefully even be playful and fun at times while still making space for when you just need someone to listen empathetically. Before devoting my career to easing suffering and helping people, I worked in software for decades with organizations like Mayo Clinic and many others. As a result, I have a natural affinity for working with software developers and those in IT.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

People have feelings and needs and it’s my job to explore them with the client in a safe space, where I hold their emotions. I will walk this unique journey with each client, not muddying the path with maps that only worked in a certain territory, a territory that I’m not currently in with the client. As much as our Western society wants to control and predict everything, life is still uncontrollable and unpredictable. When life is experienced as uncontrollable and unpredictable by us all, doesn’t it just hurt clients even more when we promise that will all change once we get through the manual or when the model says we are finished? Life is circular and rhythmic. I believe my therapy should also be circular and rhythmic. It’s my job to be soft and centered with the client and to stay in touch with these rhythms coming from the client. If I do that, and do no harm, I just might succeed as I continue to grow as a psychotherapist.
