Life is full of circumstances that we cannot control and navigating these situations can create immense doubts. Similarly, starting therapy, finding a new therapist, or picking up where you left off can create doubt, worry, or anxiety. I believe that recognizing the impacts of relationships and stressors on life, and the desire to seek out support is one of the most courageous steps a person can take toward their wellbeing. I attempt to help individuals, couples, and families navigate life’s challenges with compassion, understanding, and the belief that, as Adele reminds us, “when you’re in doubt, go at your own pace.” I meet clients with a warm, non-judgmental, and humorous approach to provide an environment that you can improve relationships, build authenticity, and work towards positive change.
I embrace an eclectic therapy approach; however, frequently use experiential, paradoxical, and solution focused models. That may mean that I encourage us to reflect on the mind-body connection, how we are experiencing our reactions while in session, strategic responses to situations in our lives, and looking for solutions to barriers we may experience. Additionally, I use trauma, neurodiverse, and multicultural informed lenses by attuning to harmful impacts of oppression, being aware of current issues, having a ton of curiosity, and being creative when problem solving systemic barriers. In sessions, I frequently reference music, tv, movies, and books to share knowledge, make a comparison, or introduce a thought.
I am a gay, non-binary, neurodivergent human. I have collected a large houseplant collection that all share the same name inspired by my best friend, and I identify as a sports gay, but exclusively hockey, specifically the Colorado Avalanche have my allegiance. Lastly, I am blessed to be a pet parent to a one of kind dog, named Luna.
