About My Clients

I typically help clients facing anxiety, stress, worry, panic, trauma, depression, and low self-esteem as well as changes related to medical issues, education, career, relationship, spirituality, parenthood, and unexpected events. I also help clients heal from "dysfunctional" families, learn to set boundaries, build confidence, and increase calm patience.

My Background and Approach

I help clients learn to overcome obstacles while taking steps toward values and goals on the path to a fulfilling life. I counsel by using compassion, authenticity, and collaboration to teach clients about the mind, brain, body, and relationships while helping them identify and change problematic patterns using wisdom and skills learned in and out of sessions. I believe each client deserves honest, credible information and a safe space to practice new skills and make mistakes while learning to grow.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I value equality, freedom to pursue personal growth, healthy families and communities, compassion toward all sentient beings, science, sustainable development, and integrity. I'm fascinated by neuroscience, ecosystems, art, technology, and human behavior. When I'm not counseling clients, studying brains or running my business, I'm usually laughing with my family, gardening with permaculture principles, traveling, volunteering, supporting budding artists and scientists, coding apps and scripts (i.e. computer programming), exploring the wilderness, or indulging in comedy. I've had my own personal experiences with trauma, depression, and anxiety, and I use those experiences to practice what I teach and connect with people who are looking for someone who "gets it".
