More About Me...

Before I met my first therapist, I wondered if this dude would be able to know what it was like to be me or feel what I was going through. My walls were up because I feared that this guy may end up not “getting it.” 

I strive to create an experience that is the opposite of what I expected from my first therapist: stuffy, pretentious, hypocritical, a guy that pretended to have never been aboard a hot mess express. My goal is to first understand without judgment.

I believe therapeutic change happens under similar conditions that I enjoy eating a burrito: a judge free zone where it’s safe to be messy. You can expect my style to reflect core values of empathy and authenticity wrapped in a soft shell of playful fun and humor.

Once you know that I “get it,” then we can move onto getting you the skills, awareness, and/or strength-based strategies that you came to therapy for. My approach is both solution-focused and action-oriented. When we experience a positive change in ourselves in therapy, then we can better act out that change in our lives. 

When I’m out of the office, I prefer to be outside. Whitewater kayaking, relationships with loved ones, and adventures with Josie (black lab mix pictured below) are all things that fill my metaphorical cup. Labels I have worn include: uninked hipster, emotionally sensitive D1 athlete, analytically minded experiential therapist.

“There is no rushing a river. When you go there, you go at the pace of the water… Acceptance of that pace, even for a day, changes us, reminds us of other rhythms beyond the sound of our own heartbeats.” – Jeff Rennicke
