Here’s how I work as a couples therapist
My first task is to turn down the temperature so that you can talk to one another. I have developed a program to encourage you to do the work of fixing things together. When you go through my program you will be able to...
Talk about things without worry
Compromise while getting what you want and need
Avoid taking responsibility for things that aren’t yours
Have fun together even when things don’t go perfectly
Keep passion alive
… and so much more
Here's how I work as an individual therapist
In my work as an individual therapist, I take a relational approach and provide practical tools to alleviate symptoms related to depression, anxiety, and trauma. My philosophy is centered on goal-oriented therapy. Clients come to me with specific concerns, and my role is to empower them to achieve those goals. Therapy doesn't have to be a long-term commitment; often, 6 to 9 months are often sufficient for addressing targeted issues.

Over the years of being a therapist, I've been privileged to assist adolescents through seniors in navigating the overwhelming feeling of isolation, where it seems like no one understands. I earned my MA in Counseling Psychology from John F. Kennedy University in 2005. In 2013, I became a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in California, and I extended my practice to Nevada in 2022.
I'm originally from the Chicago Area. I have had a wide range of professional experience before becoming a therapist. I was a seminarian for two years. I've worked as a Laborer, International Market Analyst, Assistant Manager in Retail, and as a Web Developer and Designer. What attracted me to the seminary is what set me on the path to becoming a therapist. People have always come to me for support. Before becoming a therapist I volunteered as a counselor for unhoused people and LGBTQIA+ youth at non-profit agencies over the years. In addition, I taught English as a Second Language to new immigrants. As a therapist I have been better able to provide support to people seeking asylum in the US, unhoused LGBTQIA+ youth, and unhoused foster youth transitioning into adulthood.
As a member of the LGBTQIA+ community, I understand the nuances of diverse relationships and identities. I'm well-versed in working with polyamory, BDSM, and kink dynamics. My expertise extends to high-conflict couples, infidelity, and addiction issues. I draw from the Gottman Method and the insights of Ellyn Bader's Developmental Model to guide my couples' therapy.
I'm dedicated to evolving and improving my couples therapy methods continually. I'm developing various versions of couples intensives and materials that couples may take home and use after therapy. Stay tuned for the latest updates and enhancements in my approach.
