If you could pick one movie or book that influenced your approach to therapy, what would it be and why?

The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron. I love leading groups based upon this workbook. It is fun, easy to use and gets deep at core issues of identity development, spirituality and creativity.

What was your path to becoming a therapist? What inspired you to choose this profession?

I have also been a good listener and I enjoy helping others.

How do you determine therapy goals with clients? What does that process look like?

I use a collaborative approach based on my client's goals and we review their progress every few months.

Work History

I have worked in community-based mental health, public schools and private practice for most of my career. I bring a person-centered, strengths-based, and open-hearted approach to my clients. I worked with a wide range of clients, from adolescents, college students to parents and adults. Many of my clients are men or creative types who come from the LGBTAI+ community. I specialize using in narrative and ecotherapy techniques for building coping skills, relaxation and getting outside the office when possible, which can help symptoms with anxiety and depression. I also run mutual support groups for aspiring artists and men's group centered around the story of the Hero's Journey.
