I welcome all of your identities and strive to create a safe space where you feel empowered to show up fully as you are. I specialize in guiding clients grappling with depression, anxiety, isolation, sexual identity, gender identity, spiritual crisis and integration, religious trauma, personal and spiritual inquiry, career change and other life transitions.

My approach to therapy is to accompany my clients in rediscovering their true self, their source of self-compassion, their innate healing power, their autonomy, and their personal authority.  

I believe in therapy because it has been a key tool in my own healing journey. Growing up as a gay/queer cisgender male in a conservative religious community left me struggling with worthlessness. I felt divorced from my body, my spirit, and the wider world around me. I found self-compassion and healing through my work with caring therapists, mindfulness meditation, and personal inquiry.

I collaborate with clients to address the psychology of the whole person. I work primarily from a person-centered approach and am training in techniques such as Gestalt, Internal Family Systems (IFS), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and somatic interventions. When it fits the client, I like to incorporate mindfulness meditation to help clients build resilience and self-resourcing skills. I am passionate about these approaches because I’ve personally witnessed how using these techniques to integrate mind and body can enable profound healing.

Prior to becoming a counselor, I worked first as a molecular biologist, then as a software engineer. Although I found both fields interesting, I found that my real passion was exploring how my own mind worked and healing the false body-mind split. The more I discovered, the more passion I felt to share that experience with others.

I hold a BA in Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology/French Language from the University of Colorado at Boulder, and am completing my master’s degree from Naropa University in Clinical Mental Health Counseling in the Mindfulness-Based/Transpersonal concentration.
