Welcome to my page! As a trans-man, I find it immensely important to give back to the community through the art of psychotherapy.

EMDR is an evidence-based practice that is highly effective in treating individuals with single-episode and complex PTSD. This allows you to re-process your traumas while minimizing the risk of re-traumatization. It still bewilders me to see how effective this practice is, and I absolutely love seeing the results!
I am extremely passionate about CBT as a practice for anxiety, depression, and various other mental health conditions. This treatment method addresses negative beliefs and how these beliefs affect our emotions and behaviors. It allows us to get deeper than just the problematic behavior and in order to address issues at their root.
I have been using this treatment modality for my entire career, and it has proven to be effective for individuals who are still contemplating their readiness for change. While others in your life may be growing frustrated, I am more than willing to sit with you in that contemplation and help you move towards your goals at your own pace.
I am trained in EMDR and have been doing EMDR for over 2 years. I have witnessed first hand the incredible results that EMDR has produced for many of my clients who experience moderate to severe PTSD symptoms. This treatment modality has proven to be effective for people with both single incident trauma and complex trauma.
I specialize in CBT as a primary treatment modality for anxiety. I find it to be extremely effective because it allows an individual to address negative beliefs and uncomfortable emotions that may be contributing to anxiety.
I have worked in the field of addiction for almost 10 years. I have experience with every level of care from hospitalization to outpatient therapy. This population unfortunately is so marginalized and stigmatized and there is a tremendous need for allies. Though I myself have not experienced addiction, I have an overwhelming amount of empathy and compassion for individuals who do.
