Passionate About Inspiring Others

Will I get what you bring to the table?

Am I someone you can open up to?

Could you trust me?

These are the core questions that you are asking as you look over this page.


These are such individual questions, and I would invite you to really look at them as you consider working with me. I believe that the process of therapy is one that begins with and continues through the nature of connection (more on this below), and so paying close attention to your answers here matters. I’ll let you know that I often hear my style of conducting therapy is depth-oriented, relaxed, direct, resourceful and willing to be with you in your healing.


I’ve always wanted to be a therapist, my whole life. I never wanted anything else, mainly because I never knew any other profession that so fit me as a person. I have a wide range of interests, from long-distance running to reading (I’m always reading at least three books). I love to laugh, have deep, meaningful connections and I am a strong believer that therapy can often be full of a lot of bullshit that doesn’t really translate to real life.


I am a practicing meditator, active in writing and other forms of creation and deeply inspired and hopeful that regardless of who you choose to work with, they will be the right fit for you.

How I Work


I am driven by a couple of principles in therapy, but I firstly I believe that you are your own individual person, with a unique nervous system, unique needs and desires. I seek to understand all of these, as well as your goals, hopes and how you define healing, as we do our work together. I strongly believe that therapy can contain a ton of bullshit, and I do my best to not fall into those traps.


I seek to provide a space that can let you meet yourself fully, feel understood, and collaborative in the therapeutic process. I tend to work well with those who have had some exposure to therapy, but feel they might not be making the progress they desire. I seek to educate, collaborate, and balance the art and science of therapy throughout the process we on-going work we engage with together.
