I do this work because talking with people lights me up and makes me come alive. We may be an especially good fit to work together if you are motivated to create change in your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors and you see therapy as an active, collaborative process of mutual learning and new possibility. I see counseling as an investment of energy and learning in the areas of life that are ultimately most significant. It takes courage.

I frequently work with people to improve important relationships, life transitions, emotions, cult & undue influence recovery, sexual and gender identity, polyamory, wealth and identity, anti-oppression, integrity, and shame. Therapeutic relationships can help you build a greater sense of ease in your relationships with yourself and others, and with the unavoidable challenges of life. Practice makes better. With warmth and caring it is my task to support and challenge you in your work to transform.
