My Approach to Helping

I want to help you see your problems differently, as more manageable, and ultimately, as something you can overcome. During our time together, I'll work with you to set your goals and break down the barriers between you and progress. My aim is always to help every person I meet become a more complete and whole person.

More Info About My Practice

I use an integrative approach to therapy. I am trained in motivational interviewing, which will help drive our discussions and draw out your best self. With me, you'll learn skills and techniques you can keep forever. I'll walk with you through your issues and share your burdens. For clients seeking transpersonal approaches to elevate their life, I can guide you on that journey through cannabis-assisted psychotherapy as an option. Ask me if you qualify at our consultation.

My Role as a Therapist

I believe that everyone should receive the care they need and should be given the respect and dignity they deserve as human beings. I believe therapy should be a collaborative process, not a one-sided conversation. I believe you can overcome problems with your drug of choice if we work together. I also believe that cannabis can enhance the lives of many people, and even improve their outcomes in therapy. For these reasons, I offer cannabis-assisted psychotherapy as an additional modality for those looking to pursue transpersonal work.
