About Me

The heart of my practice, and my passion, is in helping clients resource, reprocess and resolve their trauma so that they can go on to live lives of intention, connection, vitality, hope and meaning.

Education & Experience

I am a somatically & psychodynamically-trained, trauma & attachment-informed, emotionally-focused, mindfulness-based, poly-friendly, pro-choice, queer-allied, antiracist, client-centered & dual-licensed psychotherapist curious about anything and everything being evoked within you & between the world and you. I am especially interested in how we are shaped and impacted by family and culture, in exploring the places where our personal and collective conditioning intersect and overlap, and in how the sociopolitical matrix we find ourselves located and positioned in shapes, impacts and functions in us personally, professionally, romantically, familially, socially, collectively & otherwise. I identify as a white cis hetero able-bodied neurotypical agnostic queer-allied pro-choice antiracist INFP/J American male. I am a descendant of English, Swiss-German, French & Irish settler colonialists. I graduated from the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) with a Masters in Counseling Psychology (Somatic Concentration) in the fall of 2018 and fulfilled my residency as an MFT trainee at the Center for Somatic Psychotherapy in downtown San Francisco counseling adult survivors of unresolved childhood trauma. As an Associate MFT I joined Grateful Heart and the Couples Center counseling couples through an emotionally-focused, mindfulness-based, attachment-informed frame. Since attaining licensure my work has been trauma-focused, primarily EMDR integrated with IFS, AEDP, Hakomi and other healing modalities. My passion is in helping clients resource, reprocess and resolve their trauma so that they can live lives of intention, connection, vitality, hope and meaning.
