Overview

I believe therapy is about optimization and self-understanding, not just crisis care. The core of my practice is informed by the Person Centered approach, with a major focus on the therapeutic alliance. Developing and maintaining a strong client-counselor relationship greatly benefits all the work we do together.

Many of my counseling specialties are tied to my personal passions. I am passionate about men's issues and masculinity, and this topic holds a dear place in counseling. My educational background in Women's, Gender, & Sexuality Studies also inspires my other counseling specialties, such as LGBTQ+ issues and a feminist approach. I encourage clients to make this experience as collaborative as possible, asking any question and feeling that these sessions are theirs to dictate.
