Welcome to my psychotherapy site. I am a licensed psychotherapist, licensed addictions counselor, and a certified group psychotherapist. Additionally, I am husband, father, and life-long student of mindfulness practices. I am incredibly grateful to work so intimately with people and am passionate about therapy’s ability to help & empower my clients to live enriched lives.
I believe that any aspect of our emotional experience is communicating something vital about our lived experience. The feelings that haunt us (like anxiety, anger, and depression) are frequently the very gateways we need to journey into and heal them. In other words, the problem is the information out of which we create healing and understanding. This kind of understanding paired with a reliable patient-therapist relationship can re-integrate the emotions and intellect to create real change in life. Together we work to overcome what is daunting and reclaim a life that is rich with meaning, connection, and deep enjoyment.
The relational approach I take is grounded in years of experience and inspired by advanced trainings in a Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Modern Psychoanalysis, Dialectical-Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Motivational Interviewing. My work is also influenced by Mindfulness body-based approaches that support clients in resolving trauma and experiencing deeper resilience. This range will allow us to discuss your personal needs and determine a direction that is both deep and practical, skill-based and effective.
I am a Certified Group Psychotherapist with over ten years of experience leading therapy groups with people of diverse backgrounds and histories. Additionally, I have received advanced trainings with the Center For Group Studies in Modern Group Analysis. I currently serve as Vice President of the Colorado Group Psychotherapy Society (COGPS), and am an American Group Psychotherapy Association (AGPA) member.
