Therapy Style

Therapy is challenging as it puts one in a vulnerable position. I believe it takes courage and a willingness to confront challenges in one’s life. To do so, my therapeutic approach takes a non-judgmental, compassionate, and curious stance to foster safety to grow and take on challenges yet feel accepted in where you are.

My therapeutic approach is grounded in an integration of clients’ unique backgrounds, clinical expertise, and evidence-based treatments. With a mix of both my therapeutic approach and training, I hope to foster a collaborative relationship that is built on trust and safety to empower my clients to utilize skills learned in therapy to effectively manage their presenting issues.

he/him

Why did you become a mental health professional?

I have always been interested on how ones' history has an impact on their present lives. They are not defined by their histories, however, better understanding of this can lead to insight and change. I find the blend of the “light bulb” or “aha” moment and the changes that one makes both encouraging and fulfilling.

What are your interests outside of work?

I am a nature lover. I enjoy backpacking in the sierras and going to the beach quite therapeutic. Traveling and spending time with friends.

What is one thing you do daily that supports your well-being?

Spending time with my very active dog, mindfulness and meditation.
