Utilizing Therapy to Empower You to Live Life with Courage and Compassion!

Why should you consider me as a potential therapist?

I will treat you with respect, take your concerns seriously, and I will work with you to find solutions to your struggles. I utilize a collaborative approach where we will have a clear idea of your concerns and apply solutions that are culturally aligned with your values and beliefs. 


Q What type of counseling/therapy do I provide?

I provide individual counseling to adults. I practice from a compassion-focused therapy approach that includes an integration of cognitive-behavioral, dialectical behavioral and EMDR approaches.

Q Do you provide couples and/or family counseling?

No, I only work with individuals.

Q What is your area of expertise?

I have experience successfully treating depression, anxiety, and relationship concerns. I also work with men's identity issues.

Q What types of populations do you work with?

I work within an antiracist, LGBTQIA, neurodiverse framework which has at its basis a belief in the dignity of all people. I attempt to maintain training in addressing issues of diversity, inclusion, justice, and equity both within my practice and as it relates to access to mental health services.
