I believe one of the bravest things anyone can do is to begin to understand their own story. I am perpetually on that journey as well, and hope to be a helpful guide within yours. I am an evolving soul, synthesizing learned skills and lived experiences to mindfully foster positive shifts towards wellness. One of my most valued professors instilled in me that I am my best tool. In an effort to utilize this tool, this body, this soul, skillfully, I have intentionally worked on cultivating practices to implement while navigating life in all of its ups and downs. It is within these challenges so inherent to the human condition that I find the most opportunities for growth, both within myself and those I serve. I have earned my Masters in Mental Health Counseling from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, providing me with a strong background in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) within a holistic framework. I have complemented this with training in Trauma-informed practices through the Institute for Family Professionals. I have also participated in extensive training in mindfulness-based practices through the Myrna Brind Center for Integrative Medicine at Jefferson University, including Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Compassion-based practices. I value diversity and am allied with the LGBTQ+ community, having volunteered with organizations like The Trevor Project to promote awareness and facilitate continued support. I have also worked with individuals living with substance use issues and am very motivated to guide the healing process for these individuals as well as those in their immediate support system. My learned skills, professional experience, and living journey guides my approach to therapy and cultivates an infinite curiosity and passion. I channel my passion skillfully in order to collaborate with others of all ages, engaging strengths from their unique walks of life, as they try to manage such things as depression, anxiety, addiction, trauma, as well as other life obstacles and transitions. I feel deeply honored to be able to do this work. I believe in collaborative and strengths-based approaches to enhancing community and nurturing connection. I believe that if we are breathing, there is hope.
Informally, I enjoy capturing life’s moments through the lens of a camera, prefer water to land, and would be lost without the companionship of my two dogs. My wife and I live comfortably on a little farm called What-A-Hoot Hollow in southeastern PA, alongside chickens and goats! Nature, reading, and music never fail to elevate my mood and fuel my soul.
