Periods of struggle and suffering in your life can provide you with important opportunities to cultivate inner-strength, fulfilling relationships, and lasting meaning. However, if these struggles become too big then this can damage your mental health and leave you with depression or anxiety. If this happens, it’s important to seek help from a professional. Of course, who you go to depends on the individual that is struggling. For example, Honey Lake Clinic is a great place for Christian teenagers to go and get treatment for their mental health issues while also practising their faith. However, everyone takes a different approach to treatment so this route might not be best for you. You may find you would prefer a more holistic treatment. If this is the case, I can help you develop a personal framework that will foster nourishing joy and holistic health. If you struggle with issues connected to fulfillment, life satisfaction, depression or difficulty during life transitions, you will find resonance with my approach. I work best with clients who seek to ease suffering and who aim for personal transformation.

I support individuals and couples who experience social marginalization due to race, ethnicity, gender identity, and sexual orientation. I assess for historical harms and multigenerational trauma, and address the suffering caused by social oppression head on. Oppression is real and you do not have to remain silent.

Therapy with me is a collaborative process. I will assist you in gaining greater self-awareness and provide a safe space to explore your negative emotions and unhealthy patterns. In my practice I draw from mindfulness-based, transpersonal, existential, family systems and Gestalt therapies. Together, we will find solutions that create lasting change.

I work with older adolescents, emerging adults, adults, couples and families.
