My Story

I spent 12 years in digital marketing and e-commerce as a small business owner before becoming a Mental Health Therapist. After doing my own “soul searching” with the help of a skilled psychotherapist and career counselor I was able to find a new path. Life has challenges and the things that are worthwhile do not come quick or easy. Working our way through the challenges instead of around them brings lasting change. For some bringing another person into their life’s challenges can be intimidating and it takes great courage to reach out for help. For me, finding peace was only possible after I let go of my insecurities and became committed my own journey of healing. I find it greatly rewarding to help others in finding their own path and feel greatly privileged that my clients allow me to join them on their journey.

Professional Experience

You deserve to live a life where you are excited to wake up every morning. Many people shortchange themselves when it comes to personal growth a rarely feel at peace with their lives.  They lose the ability to pursue their unique possibilities. I can promise you that I am as real as it gets and use my own experiences of depression, anxiety, trauma, and grief to help my clients with their own unique life struggles. My ideal client is focused upon personal growth and healing. Reaching out is the first step to your new journey and I hope you will take a moment (and perhaps a deep breath) to call and see how I can help.

Life is too short to feel stuck in unhealthy relationships, harbor resentment, let trauma control us, or be anxious/angry/depressed all the time. Can you imagine your potential if you were free of emotional pain (at least most of the time)? It is possible to find peace, meaning, and purpose at work, with family, friends, and in spirit.

I work with Couples and Individuals on their relational lives using evidence-based approaches such as EFT, DBT, and Hypnotherapy. I incorporate my experiences as an employee, father, husband, and friend into my therapeutic process. I’d be honored to begin a journey with you to help you find a more fulfilling path where you can fully imagine and live out your innate potential.

Clinician Specialties

Grief & Bereavement Counseling

Bereavement and grief aren’t light-hearted topics. Bereavement refers to the process of recovering from the death of a loved one, and grief is a reaction for any form of loss. Both encompass a wide range of emotions such as fear, anger and deep, deep sadness. The process of adapting to a loss can dramatically change from person to person, depending on his or her background, beliefs, relationship to the person who’s passed, and other factors. Common symptoms of grief can be physical, emotional or social.

Counseling for Trauma

Most people will experience trauma in their lifetime whether it’s a car accident, abuse or neglect, the sudden death of a loved one, a violent criminal act, exposure to the violence of war, or a natural disaster. While many people can recover from trauma over time with the love and support of family and friends and bounce back with resiliency, others may discover effects of lasting trauma, which can cause a person to live with deep emotional pain, fear, confusion, or posttraumatic stress far after the event has passed. In these circumstances, the support, guidance and assistance of a therapist is fundamental to healing from trauma.

Counseling for Anxiety

Is anxiety taking over your life? Does it feel like you can’t control it no matter how hard you try? Have you already tried therapy but found it ineffective? If this sounds like you, Mindfully Healing can help. Our practice offers the most effective forms of treatment, to get relief from the anxiety that you deserve. When it comes to treating anxiety disorders, research shows that therapy is usually the most effective option. That’s because anxiety therapy – as opposed to anxiety medication – treats more than just symptoms to the problem.

Online Counseling

*Due to concerns regarding the COVID-19 outbreak and social distancing recommendations, some Mindfully Healing Clinicians are now offering VIDEO TELEHEALTH services to both new and established clients.

"Mindfully Healing embraces a personal growth based model unlike a problem or deficiency based model of traditional mental health... Our clients experience this during their first session."

Why Private Pay is Beneficial for Some Clients?
  • Insurance does not cover relational difficulties such as couples and family therapy, they require a DSM-V diagnosis for one of the members. As a fee-for-service provider, I do not have to give you a mental health diagnosis.
  • Mental health diagnoses can follow you and be documented on health records and can result in affecting life insurance applications, health insurance applications and other benefits or services.
  • Together, we can determine how many times we meet instead of the insurance company making that decision.
  • Since a treatment plan, notes and billing information are not being released to an insurance company, a greater amount of confidentiality is in place for you.
