I love helping people go beyond limiting symptoms, beliefs and self-image to reach their greatest potential. I believe in the basic goodness of people, and that we all do the best we can in any given situation based on what we know, and what we have been given - much of which is out of our control. This is an invitation to learn self-compassion as a skill, so that we can see ourselves clearly, kindly, and with a sense of curiosity and compassion. From that foundation of safety, we can explore your reality and create a container for you to feel the unsaid, challenge beliefs and behaviors that no longer serve you to create the life you deserve and imagine. Mindfulness plays a key role in our shared journey, as a means to learn to respond to others, situations and yourself vs. reacting in destructive ways out of habit. Mindfulness is also a key to reconnecting with your body, emotions and the present to facilitate deep, holistic healing.

I became a therapist out of my own experience with suffering, and a strong desire to help others accept themselves completely, build strong relationships, and become the best version of themselves - not only for them, but for their partners, children, family and community.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

I grew up in a small town in Upstate NY. My dad left when I was in the womb, and that always left an energetic wounding in my heart, and some misguided belief that I was not wanted. This, along with growing up poor, and with an emotionally abusive stepdad fueled my anxiety, lack of worth and deep pain. I thought all of this was normal, and when I went to college, and was free from my family, I self-medicated with alcohol. It wasn't until I began to get into the outdoors, mountain biking and hiking that I quite my addiction to alcohol. Nature and my connection to it became my identity, spirituality and sanctuary. All of this came crashing down when I injured my back, and was no longer able to connect to nature in the ways I had. No longer able to cope with my anxiety and unexpressed emotions from the past via nature - and not willing to go back to drinking - I began a slow and transformative journey into my past and soul. This path, of working through vs escaping or going around the painful elements of my psyche and relationships provided me with an embodied experience of healing vs. text books and theories. These experiences, combined with a contemplative education at Naropa, allow me to offer my clients an authentic perspective and present moment experience of healing.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

There is this highly misguided notion that reaching out for support means that you are weak. This is particularly true for men, though in general, our culture over values independence and undervalues connection, support and community. True health and independence come from feeling strongly connected to others, to loved ones, communities and ourselves. When we feel that another holds us in their heart, we can explore our experience, emotions, careers and the world wrapped in safety, knowing that no matter what, those we are connected to have our backs. If we try and solely figure out our challenges with the same thoughts and beliefs that created our struggles, how can we ever grow? As Tony Robbins says, "If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always gotten." Life is an experiment. Try something different and see what the results are. If it's helpful, keep doing it. If not, don't. It's actually much more courageous to reach out for support then it is to bottle up our emotions and hide from our feelings and self.
