My Approach to Helping

I believe that anyone can benefit from having a nonjudgmental, welcoming space to address problems in their everyday life. My approach aims to help you explore and understand how past patterns of thoughts, feelings, and relationships may be impacting your ability to engage with your present life. By working together to build coping skills based on your strengths, we can begin to recognize those patterns and utilize more adaptive responses that can help you live a more satisfying and authentic life.

I strongly believe that our problems in living are often rooted in struggles related to one's social environment, rather than existing solely in the individual. I use a collaborative, strengths-based approach to therapeutic work that focuses on the individual and their specific needs and skills, working to implement strategies based on personal values and goals. My areas of interest include LGBTQ populations, self-esteem, depression and anxiety, grief and loss, intergenerational trauma, religion and spirituality, men's issues, and relationships. I use behavioral approaches, such as CBT, DBT & ACT, in combination with psychodynamic approaches.
