About My Clients

I have experience working with individuals, couples, and families that are experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, attachment and relationship concerns, gender and sexual identity development, and other life stressors. I have specialized education and experience working with young children ages 0-10 and utilize play therapy and Parent-Child Interaction Therapy. I also work with youth and adults who identify as LGBTQIA+ on sexual identity development.

My Background and Approach

We are all unique human beings and I draw on different therapeutic interventions that will work best for you and your life. Together we will work to identify practices for you that create feelings of empowerment and efficacy. You will not be forced into boxes or directed in what is “right” or “wrong” for therapy. My main approaches for therapy include humanistic, Gestalt, client-centered therapy, attachment theory, play therapy, Parent-Child Interaction Therapy, emotion focused couples therapy, and family systems therapy. These are merely frameworks for understanding therapy--again, I strive to work with the client to find what they prefer and go from there. At the root of all my work is providing a space that is welcoming and developing trust and acceptance between myself and my clients.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As a therapist my first priority is to my client and regardless of whatever backgrounds, identities, or opinions you hold you are welcome. One of the greatest capacities of humans is our ability to disagree with each other but still hold respect and understanding for those we are different from. The most important identity that I feel I hold as a therapist is the identity of "client." I have been in therapy myself and know what it feels like to be "on the other side" as they say. I believe that a good therapist is one that has been/is in therapy themselves as it demonstrates that we are also willing to be vulnerable, to grow, and to challenge ourselves. I am a homegrown San Diegan that briefly lived in northern Colorado. I feel most at peace in the Eastern Sierra Nevada mountains. I have a loving fiancee, dog, and cat at home and enjoy making the most of the simple things: coffee on my balcony with a good book, learning new recipes, and putting on my favorite vinyl records.
