Are you dealing with an issue that you don't know how to solve? Does the same problem keep reoccurring? Are you experiencing a life transition? Concerns about your relationships? My practice is named "Ignite Change Therapy" because I believe that therapy can ignite change in a person's life. What "change" takes place is up to each client. I believe that "change" can range from greater awareness of oneself to changing specific behaviors. I offer clients a safe space and work with adults (individuals and couples) and adolescents. I specialize in supporting young adults and college students, men, LGBTQIQA individuals, and people with disabilities. My approach is compassionate, genuine, and respectful. I focus on client strengths, separate the person from their "problem," and teach clients skills. I consider how cultural and environmental factors impact clients. Clinical issues that I work with include depression, anxiety, life transitions/adjustment, stress, relationship difficulties, work/career problems, sexuality/gender identity, disability, and masculinity. I have worked at UC Berkeley's counseling center and at UCSF Alliance Health Project, so I have experience treating young adults and LGBTQIQA individuals. My dissertation studied disability issues, so I possess expertise in working with people with disabilities. Please explore my website and LinkedIN profile to learn more about me and my practice.
