Hi, nice to meet you.
I am guessing you have found my site because you are looking for help. I want you to know that reaching out for help is an essential part of being human, not an indication that something is wrong with you. This principle is one of my foundational beliefs as a therapist. We are all only human.
However, even though what you're going through is a normal part of being human, it's not enjoyable, comfortable...maybe not even bearable. You feel different from everyone else, isolated, confused, and hopeless. Maybe you don't know why you're here anymore. That's where I come in.
As your therapist, my goal is to help you find a sense of purpose and meaning in your life, be able to accept and tolerate your emotions, and experience a connection with whatever makes your life worth living. I use my own love of nature, geek culture, sports, podcasts, and other interests to help you create powerful metaphors and narratives to understand your life. I aim to make you the hero of your own story.
While I work with a wide variety of people, I find that my approach can be particularly effective in the following areas. I can offer individual, couple, or family therapy depending on the situation.
