About me

Before becoming a counselor I moved away from home to snowboard, worked in software and social services, and learned to cope with family substance problems, social anxiety, and harrowing fears of flying and public speaking, . I've worked with migrant families, veterans, couples, rural and urban clients, and people who struggle with meth and heroin. I am also formally trained in play therapy, EMDR, CBT, and substance abuse counseling. I believe that we take on a story that can feel unchangeable, and that it can be very helpful to learn to disrupt our own status quo and change the story.
