Therapy can be a great place to learn to unravel difficulties, learn new tools, and thrive no matter what life brings to the table. I help late teens and adults address various experiences such as grief and loss, depression, anxiety, faith transitions, and particularly the intersection of religious/spiritual and LGBTQ experiences. I am gay and LDS which grants me a unique perspective in this space. This helps remove barriers of fear and misunderstanding early so we can get down to the nitty gritty. Regardless of your life experiences, I honor all parts of you and want to help you get to a place of peace, wholeness, and flourishing.
I adopt a holistic approach and employ a variety of frameworks such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), CBT, and Narrative Therapy to name a few. My therapeutic perspective is not necessarily to eliminate pain, though that often happens as a happy byproduct, but rather to use those experiences as a valuable springboard of learning and growth.
I was raised in Southern Idaho on a potato farm of all places but have a deep love for this beautiful state. When I’m not doing therapy, I’m spending time with loved ones, gardening, playing piano, singing, exploring this beautiful planet, skiing, playing games, reading, lifting weights at the gym, learning something new, or “arting” to my heart’s content.Go Back
