6 years of experience

Seeking strength, understanding, and a path forward? I'm not your typical therapist. I've walked the walk that you have, not just once, but twice. As a former Marine and law enforcement officer, I know firsthand the pressures, traumas, and unique challenges faced by those in service and beyond. Now, I leverage my experience and clinical expertise to guide individuals grappling with depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and the invisible wounds of trauma.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

I start by listening and working with you to see where we can find the most relief early on. We'll collaborate to develop a personalized plan that addresses your specific needs and goals. This may involve evidence-based therapies like CBT, or mindfulness techniques, depending on your situation. My goal is to equip you with the skills to navigate challenges, and build healthy coping mechanisms.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I have a wide variety of experiences that allow a level of relatability to things in life that many providers have not experienced. I work on identifying skills, strengths, and coping strategies that you already have, and adapting them to address current concerns. I look at my clients as a collaborator in reaching goals rather than someone that needs to start from scratch.
