Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
Send your prospective therapist a brief message about why you’re seeking support, your preference for in-person or telehealth services, and how you’d like to be contacted moving forward. Note: Answers to many common questions can be found on the therapist’s profile page. If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital.
Experienced clinician with a decorated history of working in the mental health industry.

Certified Social Worker experienced in treating: depression, anxiety, trauma, mood disorders, addiction/substance use disorders, behavioral problems, existential crises, faith transition, codependency, and familial dysfunction.
As a social worker I have a diverse background. I have an extensive history working in settings with at-risk youth, people who struggle with substance abuse problems, and school settings. Often drawing from Buddhist, Taoist, and Stoic philosophy I embrace clients in their struggle. I walk their path beside them to assist and advocate for them in their healing journey. Warm, genuine, and authentic, I believe that meeting clients where they are at and building the “therapeutic alliance” is one of the key components to lasting change. I seek to understand what you are going through and to work toward therapy goals collaboratively.
Using a client-centered perspective I seek to understand, build a trusting relationship, and work toward implementation of therapeutic interventions to assist in making life better. I use an eclectic therapeutic style often drawing from various types of therapies such as Humanistic Psychotherapy, CBT, DBT, EMDR, SFBT, and Emotion-Focused Psychotherapies.
Life is difficult sometimes and can feel overwhelming, lonely, or sad. I have felt that way as well during parts of my life. Grief, loss, addiction, and trauma are all part of my story. I have had great allies to help weather the storm. I would like to work with you or your loved ones to help weather life's emotional storms. Not just as a therapist, an ally.
