Who am I?
I see myself as a supportive confidant who seeks to help balance both the acceptance of unfortunate aspects of our human condition with a parallel emphasis on taking steps to change your circumstances for growth in a positive direction. This includes replacing unhealthy coping mechanisms with more effective and fulfilling forms of stress relief. Whether you come in with troubles and challenges in your work life, interpersonal relationships, finding a sense of meaning and purpose, or any other of the many struggles everyone experiences from time to time, I am here to encourage positive growth for you. I enjoy building strong relationships and supporting all of my clients regardless of the challenges they face.
In my free time, I enjoy hiking with my wife, reading, and going to the gym.
I am a Resident in Counseling working towards LPC licensure. Furthermore, I graduated with a Master’s in Mental Health Counseling from the University of Vermont in 2021 after completing a Bachelor’s in Psychology from the University of Florida in 2019.
I love working with:
- Those struggling with career or relationship issues.
- Men who might not be otherwise comfortable with counseling.
- College students managing anxiety and stress and beginning to develop their own unique goals and values separate from their families.
- Teenagers who are reluctant to engage in counseling.
Some of my favorite approaches include:
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, ACT, Attachment-Based Therapy, Motivational Interviewing
