Healthy relationships serve as the foundation for living a vibrant and fulfilling life. Relationships help to inform our perspective on the world and how we see ourselves. They are the source of some of our greatest joys and deepest sorrows and are core to the human experience. But navigating relationships can be tricky, and it takes time and energy to ensure our connections are healthy and supportive.
My fascination with relationships led me to pursue a degree in therapy after working in the public and private sectors. I spent most of my career in high-pressure environments where relationships played a critical role in producing successful outcomes. I use these experiences, and other lived experiences to inform my approach when working with clients.
I use Structural Family Therapy with my clients to better understand power dynamics’ role in relationships and a family system. I enjoy working with individuals, couples, families, and business partners interested in finding supportive ways to navigate life and their relationships. You’ll find my approach is solution-oriented, which is why I like to begin new client engagements by discussing and defining the outcomes we’ll be working toward in therapy.
I use a multicultural lens in my practice to create space for cultural influences and perspectives that have shaped my clients’ lives, and I keep these at the forefront of our work together. I’m committed to continuing to address inherent biases I possess to establish an environment that actively supports the identities that shape the individuals I work with.
On a personal note, I married my high school sweetheart, and we have a seven-year-old son. We are in the process of becoming a foster care family, and I’m looking forward to the good that will come from that experience. In my free time, I enjoy listening to podcasts centered around comedy, exercising to support my mental health, and doing my best to meditate daily.
