My Approach
Most likely you’re not looking for a therapist because you feel so awesome you want to pay someone to talk about it. I know that certainly wasn’t the case for me — I first sought therapy because I was in a ton of pain (and not the physical kind). If that sounds familiar, first off, welcome. Second, although suffering is painful, sometimes pain is the only thing that can motivate us to make the positive changes necessary for true happiness.
 
Although it might be external circumstances that caused you to start looking for a therapist, I believe it is the internal work that sets us free. If we are waiting for people to act differently towards us, the world to be more fair, our boss to recognize our genius, etc. then we are giving away control of our happiness.
 
I firmly believe that we all have the capacity to be truly happy. My aim as a therapist is to help you get rid of the parts of you that are standing in the way of this. I do this by combining talk therapy, education and “homework” to help increase self actualization. I want to pass on what I have learned in school, in therapy, in my training, what I have gathered from working with others and from my own internal journey towards freedom.
 
You can feel better and I can help. 
 
Specialties
My education and training allows me to work with clients on a number of issues, but I specialize in working with those suffering from:
