About My Clients

Are you struggling with stress from work, family relationships, addictions, or life transitions? Have you suffered loss of a child, parent, friend or significant other? You don't need to bare your burden alone. Life is filled with ups and downs, and therapy can be a valuable tool in building upon your own strengths to cope with challenges. I am experienced working with clients dealing with loss, trauma, anxiety, depression, and addiction.

My Background and Approach

My treatment focuses on utilizing your strengths and motivations to improve your ability to deal with life's challenges. I take a trauma-informed approach to my therapy and utilize a strength based approach using Motivational Interviewing, EMDR, CBT, and psychoeducation as my primary therapy methods,

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I'm pro-social justice, pro-LGBTQIA+, anti-racist, and tend to view things through a systems lens. I'm a husband, father, son, and brother. I've my own share of losses that inspired me to pursue therapy as a career, but I know that every loss is unique. When I am not being a therapist, I'm probably camping, cooking, playing board or video games, or watching youtube videos about one of those things. I dabble in poetry, creative writing, and gardening. Lately, I've been listening to comedy podcasts, children's music, vaporwave, and 2000s alternative rock.
