About My Clients

Perhaps you're feeling a bit unsettled with where your life is right now, or you feel like the way you've been doing things isn't working. Maybe you feel like your mind gives you things that aren't always helpful and that get in the way of you being effective. Are you sabotaging things by using chemicals/substances or self-harming in some big or small way? Many of my clients struggle with self-esteem, identity, or spiritual/philosophical problems.

My Background and Approach

I use my background in philosophy to help expand the way a client thinks and to take an active approach in observing their own thought processes in order to discern what is helpful and what isn't. I introduce my clients from the beginning to the concept of being present in their lives in order for them to "better feel" rather than exhausting themselves with trying to avoid discomfort. My therapeutic approach involves motivational interviewing, acceptance and commitment therapy, and dialectical behavior therapy, and is rounded off with a relational/psychodynamic approach. The therapeutic relationship serves as a catalyst for change. Thus, my clients can experience change in the session and are able to reflect on this in order to make change in their relationships and behavior outside the office.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I'm an active member of the LGBTQ community and a supporter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness. When I am not providing therapy or clinical supervision, I work to train police departments on mental health issues and improve their responses to people in crisis.
