Why I do this work

I've faced my own share of challenges throughout a significant part of my life. This included enduring periods of clinical depression and PTSD. However, through intentional healing and personal growth, I've gained a deep understanding of the constant journey towards inner peace and the internal struggles that are often overlooked. Such personal insights deeply inform my ability to connect with others on a uniquely empathetic level. In my role(s) as a psychotherapist, researcher, and former professional athlete, I specialize in providing support to individuals grappling with unresolved trauma, anxiety, high-functioning depression, and significant life transitions. My motivation for this work doesn't stem from what individuals have endured; rather, it's inspired by the potential I see in them to become.

The best part of my job

The most rewarding aspect of my job is cultivating meaningful long standing connections with my clients. I find genuine joy in creating a supportive environment for individuals to share their stories, victories, and challenges. Witnessing clients carry the therapeutic work beyond our sessions and observing their personal evolution brings me immense satisfaction. I highly value the roles of being a listening ear, a motivational presence, a secure space, and a valuable resource.
As an EMDR clinician, the profound relief I've witnessed in clients as they shed the weight of their past is beyond words. I often describe EMDR as the catalyst toward a sense of openness and emotional freedom—-a powerful and unique healing for individuals who have lacked such an experience.

How I spend my free time

Outside of work, I spend much of my time enjoying nature, doing hot yoga, hiking, being physically active, listening to podcasts that challenge my own thinking about the world and life, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.
