Therapy & Counseling

I believe that effective therapy involves the mind and body – the experiential and the cognitive – and focuses on the past, present, and future.

My style blends candor with warmth, insight with empathy, and humor with compassion. I enjoy quick-witted conversations, existential ponderings, and geeking out over just about anything.

I will complete my master's in counseling at St. Mary's University in 2022, and I am pursuing my LPCC licensure under the supervision of Dr. Mary Wandrei, Ph.D., LP.

My Focus

I focus on neurodivergent gifted individuals: kids, adolescents, and adults.

When I became a dad to two (amazing) neurodivergent kids, it kicked off a lifelong journey into understanding the unique strengths and challenges that are inherent to being gifted and neurodivergent. As it turns out, I'd been learning about giftedness my whole life because I – like many – was an "undiagnosed" gifted person.

Unfortunately, gifted people are often misunderstood and misdiagnosed. Their intensity, excitability, sensory processing styles, and advanced abilities can sometimes look like other things (i.e., ADHD, Autism, Anxiety). That's not to say those other things aren't there, but their neurodiversity must be taken into account for appropriate help to be provided.

This personal experience, coupled with my 1:1 work in coaching entrepreneurs, led me to pursue a career in counseling with a focus on helping kids, parents, and adults navigate giftedness with empathy, insight, and clarity.
