About Me:

  • My clients describe me as:

    Honest, genuine, transparent, open-minded, caring, "happy-go-lucky", and goofy when it's appropriate.

  • Something to know about my approach is:

    I am a human first and professional second, meaning I will do my best to understand where my clients are as people before diving into clinical work and will tailor our treatment together according to what they need.

  • Together, we will:

    process your trauma, if needed, aid you in understanding yourself and the world around you, learn to think outside of the box, laugh, and build a trusting and compassionate therapeutic relationship for you to rely on.

  • I specialize in working with people who:

    don't understand why they feel so different from others, that don't like who they have been and want to discover who they truly are, and who are looking for a "unconventional" therapist who makes therapy feel like a conversation with a silly friend.

  • I became a therapist because:

    of my military-associated upbringing and realizing that mental health is a stigmatized and misunderstood area that needs more loving people.
