About My Clients

Becoming who you are is often uncomfortable, but actually being who you are is worth the struggle. Whether you're having the worst year ever or just need help figuring out your life, you deserve a trusted companion to help you walk your path. Even in the deepest crisis, you can find the courage to recover and get back on track. I will provide you with just the right balance of support and challenge to help get you where you need to go.

My Background and Approach

I'm a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) and Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor (CCMHC) with experience in residential treatment centers, wraparound, k-12 schools, community clinics, and career centers. I'm sensitive and empathetic to the needs of culturally diverse clientele with specific expertise working with individuals who are: Adolescents, Indigenous/Native Americans, Foster Youth, HIV+, Living with Addictions/Co-Occurring Disorders, Living with Severe Mental Illness/Psychosis, and the LGBTQ Community. We will work together on a plan tailored to your specific needs and strengths. I use evidence-based methods such as solution-focused, cognitive behavioral, and motivational interviewing techniques. My goal is to to help you achieve the recovery you envision in a caring, effective, and respectful manner.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

"Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it."-Helen Keller. We all encounter adversity on the road to self-discovery. With the right support, the rough parts can be occasions to uncover our strengths and find out who our friends are. I know what it's like to experience a crisis and feel like you have nowhere to turn. As a grandson of immigrants, poverty and trauma run in my family, but so does determination. As a member of the LGBTQ community, I've experienced discrimination first hand, but I also found a sense of belonging. These experiences have taught me that recovery really happens, and that everyone deserves the support of a trusted companion on their journey. As your counselor, we'll partner to turn your adversity into your strength.
