Two of my greatest values throughout my life have been the acquisition of wisdom, and finding ways to translate the wisdoms of personal experience into forms of healing for the world around us.
This quest has granted me the gift of working as a psychotherapist. Growing up, I spent lots of time in my imagination; a safe haven from the confusing world around me as a child. For most of my life, I've been a musician. As a classically-trained trumpet player, I've developed an ear for the subtleties of emotion often conveyed through music.
During my time at Ithaca College (B.A., 2014), I chose to switch my focus from studying Music Education to Philosophy & Religion. I then earned my M.A. in Counseling Psychology at the California Institute of Integral Studies (2018).
In my work, I value developing a supportive, collaborative relationship with my clients, thereby opening a space for healing. From this safe place, we develop client goals, explore trauma, find space for emotions needing to be heard, and navigate together through the process of psychotherapy. I enjoy working with individuals and couples, especially those dealing with depression, loneliness, intimacy issues, trauma from abuse, men's issues, feelings of disempowerment, and spiritual crises.
One unique aspect of my work is that I incorporate psychological astrology when sought, adding a new dimension to the work of therapy through the deepened awareness of archetypal patterns within the self. I also offer astrological and tarot/oracle card readings outside of my role as a therapist.
In my spare time, I enjoy making music, painting, spending time with loved ones, making food, hiking, and working in my community mental health job with children.
