About My Clients

Many people don't quite know where to begin or what to ask for. That is where I can help. A major component of therapy is having the willingness to dive in and explore, which can feel scary. I am aware that sometimes in life, the best we can do is simply show up. If that's where you are at, we will probably be a good fit. With that said, I find I that I tend to connect well with neurodivergent people and those who feel "other" in some way.

My Background and Approach

I've been a therapist in the Twin Cities for over 10 years. In that time, I have worked with many at-risk youth and their families in high intensity settings. I have also provided therapy for individuals ages 5 and up in outpatient settings and facilitated many types of therapy groups. The common denominator between all of the places and populations I have worked with is that healing does not occur without a foundation of a trusting relationship. While I feel confident in my knowledge and expertise as a seasoned therapist, I also feel strongly that my greatest skill is the ability to connect and find common ground with others. While I feel confident in pulling from many theories and modalities, the ones in which I relate with the most are experiential, narrative, and attachment-based. I do my best to practice through a culturally competent lens, and recognize that there are many experiences others have in which I cannot relate.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

In therapy with me, I find it imperative that the floor is open when it comes to all of the different "isms" that unfortunately affect so many peoples' experiences. As a white, straight, cis-gendered male, there will be many life experiences others have that I cannot relate with. It will often occur naturally that clients and I share interests or hobbies. I will sometimes use these shared interests as influences for metaphors and analogies that can apply to our therapy. Some of my top interests include Star Wars, the MCU, music, and sports.
