I am a licensed mental health therapist based in Spokane, who’s primary focus is family and children. I am an attachment-based therapist who believes that our cognitive and emotional processes provide important insights towards understanding how we are able to gain/maintain connection with others and advancement in our personal goals.
My experience as a therapist has taught me that people of all ages who struggle with ongoing anxiety, anger, insecurity and depression, seek a greater understanding and meaning of their experience than mere diagnosis and symptom management.
I have spent over ten years working with children and teenagers. I place a great emphasis on relationship within the parent-child dynamic. This means parents will have an active roll in their child’s counseling experience. I have a particular passion for fatherhood and men’s issues.
I believe that most people are in therapy in order to feel more connected to others and understood. They are seeking a deeper meaning as to why they are suffering in the first place. In adult mental health therapy, I strive to increase ones understanding of their own emotional experiences. This understanding provides insight into how our thinking and behavior can both attract and repel relationships.
I also specialize in assessment and treatment in both childhood and adult ADHD. I believe that this is one of the most treatable psychiatric disorders and I aim to provide a comprehensive understanding about the true nature of the disorder. I teach identification of symptoms and practical interventions for daily life.
