It is important to find the therapist that feels like the right fit. We come with different personalities, ideas and tools about how to be helpful. My passion for working as a counselor is to help you live life from your solid and centered self.
As I hear your story, we identify your gifts/resources, find obstacles that keep you stuck and work together to release them. Sometimes that means being focused on your outer world and environment. Other times, it means turning inward to discover and let go whatever is keeping you blocked.
I believe life is meant to be experienced, enjoyed and have purpose. You are a unique individual and deserve an approach that is customized to fit your needs (no one-size-fits all). We are all much more than any label or diagnosis. Guiding me in my work as a counselor is a passion for helping people to find their voice, to feel more awake, alive and empowered.

I invite you to allow me to accompany you on your path to healing and wholeness. I believe that you are the expert in your own life and that together we can create an individualized approach that allows you to identify and heal the things holding you back and free up your energy for living your best life.

I am trained in EMDR and ego state work. We all have experiences that have shaped us, some are now our strengths and some are blocks. You have done what you needed to do to survive and get this far in life and I see great strength in that. I can help you heal the blocks that hold you back and build on the strengths to allow you to to thrive in life and live the life you want. I have helped people who have been struggling with relationships, work, depression, anxiety, trauma, low self esteem and dissociation. I hope that you can also experience more freedom and joy in your life through our work together.

I would be honored to share your journey. Please reach out today to begin this adventure! I am currently offering teletherapy which brings the healing power of therapy directly to you which many people have found very convenient. I plan to offer in person visits in the future.

It is a wonderful time to be a therapist. We have many powerful tools that help create enduring positive change and quicken that process.
As a clinical psychologist, healer, trainer, and consultant. I help people restore a wholesome relationship between their cerebral intelligence and their natural intelligence. I teach people that problems are, almost always, a path to greater vitality, freedom and enduring peace.
I help individuals, groups and organizations enjoy an ever deeper felt connection with the spiritual dimension of their lives and their communities. I teach them how to seamlessly fold transformative spiritual practices (within and beyond their particular religious tradition) into the fabric of their professional and private lives.
Central to my healing practice is a model of therapy called Internal Family Systems (IFS) and I am a certified IFS therapist. Among the other tools in my healing toolkit are Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), One Eye Brain Integration, Brainspotting, and a relational mindfulness practice that I have been developing over the past 15 years, Structured Self-Presence© (SSP).
My practice, ways of thinking and doing, are deeply informed by the perennial wisdom of the world’s wisdom traditions as well as current behavioral and brain research.
In addition to a psychologist, I am a husband and father. I play the saxophone, clarinet, a little piano and less djembe. I love sing alongs and playing music with my family and friends.

Motherhood has shifted your roles. The vision of the person you once were is blurry and you’re longing to regain focus. Role transitions can be difficult to balance. And you find yourself wanting to soften old patterns or reframe the unhealthy self talk we learned from our own childhood.

You may have found that motherhood has shone a light on a need for perfectionism, being a catalyst for anxiety or depression. Therapy can aid in the process of healing and growth.

If you feel like counseling might help, feel free to contact me. Our first step will be a phone call to briefly discuss what made you reach out. We will schedule a face-to-face meeting to get to know each other and ensure that you feel I will be the right fit for you.

I practice the philosophy is self-acceptance. My core belief is that we are all unique and talented in numerous ways. Therefore, we must follow our own path in life. You may doubt yourself sometimes because your path does not meet society’s expectations. But, there is only one YOU in this gigantic universe that no one can replace.
