"It is in the process of embracing our imperfections that we find our truest gifts: courage, compassion, and connection."  Brené Brown

Humans have an innate need to be seen, loved, and recognized in all of our experiences:  the messy, challenging, sad, joyful, and fulfilling events in life. Frequently our experiences are informed by habits of thinking that interfere with our ability to be present. In therapy, I would work with you to explore patterns that contribute to suffering and help you be on your own side. 

My role as a therapist is to collaborate with you to peer into the shadows and discover what gets in the way of a satisfying life. You will make the decisions on what to do about it. I am here because I believe in your capacity to create a life that is best for you. 

I became a therapist after working in the semiconductor industry and for several start-ups. I loved helping people grow into their potential and see what was possible in their lives; I incorporate that into my work as a therapist. 

Talking about work in therapy matters because we spend half of our waking life there. I can help you decode workplace experiences and develop leadership and management skills. Learning who you are and how you interact with an organization can help you become more successful as well as more satisfied.  In therapy, we can practice, tolerate – maybe even welcome – challenges, as well as build and repair connections. 

Outside of this work, I am a neuroscience nerd who likes to understand the biology of what makes us tick. My favorite podcasts are Huberman Lab, Tetragrammaton, and SmartLess (ok, it’s comedy not neuroscience). I am a CrossFit athlete, and proud dog owner of Domino who loves to hike the great trails around town.
