About My Clients

You are a thoughtful, kind and compassionate person. You find yourself struggling with perfectionism, having difficulty trusting others, and experiencing doubts about your self-worth. Despite saying to yourself, "I am enough," these difficulties repeatedly disrupt relationships with family, friends, romantic partners, and colleagues. This leaves you second-guessing your decisions and afraid you have hurt the people closest to you.

My Background and Approach

I seek to help clients recover from emotional and verbal abuse, toxic masculinity, manipulation, neglect, and other forms of developmental wounding by employing trauma-informed methods including EMDR. I provide LGBTQIA+ affirmative therapy for clients and enjoy working with diverse racial, ethnic, cultural, religious and spiritual backgrounds. I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in the State of Minnesota and earned my Master of Science in Marriage, Couple, and Family Counseling from Walden University.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I have experienced clarity and peace in the natural world more often than anywhere else. I know there is incredible potential for healing and restoration that comes from spending time in reverence of nature. I provide LGBTQIA+ affirmative therapy and create a safe space for gender and sexual identity development and integration. My wife of 11 years is a strong black woman. It has been a challenging time for us as it has been for many of you. Let me hold space for you to process and release the pain you may have from experiencing or witnessing injustice.
