I believe that even the littlest of moments can be deeply meaningful, that mistakes are sometimes the best way to learn, and that we have the power to create our own destinies. It is my belief that change happens at the level of movement, making therapy an active, conscious process. As a therapist, I view my role as that of a co-pilot. Together, we will navigate your therapeutic journey in a way that is empowering and right for you.
All About Me
I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist and Certified Positive Discipline Parent Educator. I earned my Doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Adlerian Psychology from Adler University in Chicago, IL and completed my internship and post-doctoral fellowship at Connections Academy East Therapeutic Day School. My clinical training focused on working with children and adolescents with a wide range of presentations in therapeutic, school, and hospital settings. I specialize in school-aged children/teens, emotional and behavioral disorders, LGBTQ youth, ADHD, and autism spectrum disorder.
My experiences in the field have allowed me to work with a wide range of children, adolescents and their families. I believe that a solid foundation of trust, the ability to “find therapy in everything,” and “having the courage to risk imperfection” are vital to the therapeutic process. I utilize an integrative approach when working with clients, incorporating Adlerian Psychology, Family Systems, and Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy techniques.
In addition to my work with individual clients, I work closely with parents to help them integrate Positive Discipline methods into their homes as a way to aid them in creating and maintaining positive, encouraging environments to raise children and foster their growth.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my wife and our pets, hanging out with our friends, visiting family in Michigan, playing video games, nature photography, fishing, and kayaking.
