About My Clients

I am experienced in working with adults, children and families, as well as adolescent clients, on issues including depression, anxiety, assertiveness and communication, identity and meaning, as well as developing pragmatic skills that help them thrive. I provide counseling services to diverse clients as they learn, change, grow, and function in increasingly inspired, creative, healthy and adaptive ways.

My Background and Approach

I work collaboratively with clients in identifying needs, making changes, and practicing new skills in a safe and supportive setting. Primarily, I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy while including an array of other therapy modalities to help the individual client(s). I have extensive experience in working with children and families on multiple issues including parenting, healing from trauma, and life transitions. Issues that I tend to be especially suited to help with are depression, anxiety, trauma, codependency, trauma, parenting, healthy male identity, assertiveness, and communication.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I value people. I value human dignity. I value connection, compassion, and kindness. My spiritual beliefs are agnostic and I enjoy exploring philosophic and spiritual issues tied to meaning and purpose. I have years of experience in working with LGBTQ youth and their families as a counselor and volunteer and, therefore, am active in informing myself about LGBTQ issues and culture. I also seek to learn more about marginalized groups, privilege, and history that help me have a more thorough understanding of our culture, individual needs, and power dynamics. I value learning and acknowledge my ignorance.
