Connection to ourselves and others is essential to our mental health and well-being. Also, feeling like we’ve lost connection to ourselves or others (or both) at points in our lives is common. When this happens we experience sadness, anxiety, grief, shame, and a whole range of other difficult emotions. Additionally, our relationships suffer and the cycle continues. My approach values connection and the power of relationships and community. Through this approach and my training, I work with a variety of concerns including depression, anxiety, isolation, grief, shame, identity concerns, relationship difficulties, existential concerns, and men’s issues. I have years of experience working with the Queer community and others who have experienced the impact of systemic inequalities. In our work together you will likely find a supportive experience that blends processing emotions with highlighting and learning to use your strengths.
I believe we are all whole people who bring deep life experience filled with triumph, loss, and everything in between. All of these experiences are important, valid, and useful in finding our footing when it has been lost. I commit to partnering with you in your process to reconnect with yourself and others.
