Infertility can take an emotional toll on individuals and couples. I work with individuals to develop skills to manage the stress, relationship strain, and heightened emotions associated with infertility. With over a decade of experience interacting with the male infertility world, I've developed an intimate understanding of the toll infertility can take.
Trauma, PTSD, and C-PTSD have the abilities to upend even the most secure individuals. Whether the trauma is from a single event, a multitude of micro-infractions, or relational conflict, it can feel hard to re-claim power in your life. I've worked and trained extensively in trauma-informed care within settings such as outpatient clinics, 5150 inpatient facilities, and state psychiatric hospitals so that I can provide the best evidence-based care for the individuals I work with.

Along with my outpatient therapy specialties, I've worked for many years in both inpatient and outpatient facilities conducting neuropsychological and forensic assessments since 2013. From university hospitals to state psychiatric hospitals, I've honed my diagnostic skills to best assist individuals find the answers they are seeking.
Psychodynamic therapy was my first therapeutic orientation and one I frequently use to this day. When I'm working with individuals with relational difficulties, I believe the foundations for how we relate to people today are formed by the relationships we had in childhood. That is why even if we utilize another orientation's technique, a main conceptualization of the issue may be best described from a psychodynamic perspective.
I first began in 2010 practicing CBT techniques while working in a substance use treatment program with co-occurring substance use and trauma symptoms. Since then, I've continued to develop my skills across both inpatient and outpatient treatment settings with individuals spanning from outpatient life transition struggles to individuals in inpatient facilities struggling with suicidality, homicidality, psychopathy, and/or deemed not guilty by reason of insanity.
