Sessions Counseling Group

A Marriage and Family Therapy Professional Corporation

I’m an “integrative” therapist – with education and experience that grounds me in sociology, East-West psychology, philosophy and religion, cultural anthropology, astronomy, theater, music, and visual arts. 

I’ve earned an A.A. in social sciences, a B.A. in sociology, and a M.A. in clinical psychology from schools throughout southern California. I’ve also worked alongside public health policy reformers, social justice advocates, educators, theater directors, psychedelic therapists and researchers, and corporate executives. On the side, I’ve years of improvisational comedy, animal care, and grassroots campaigning under my belt, a slew of art projects (photography and music) here and there, and today, I volunteer with harm reduction organizations and support their efforts to reform mental health access and treatment.

How I Work: 


I will draw from depth psychology, psychodynamic and psychoanalytic theories, post-modern theories, Gestalt, and Attachment-based perspectives. Practically, this means that some moments, I’ll be attentively listening – other times, I’ll challenge a thought or idea --- and yet other times, I’ll offer coping skills and help ground us in the moment. The result of our unique relationship is a relatively holistic form of therapy, tailored to your needs.

-----------------------------------------------------------
Who I Work With:


The short of it is: I enjoy working with anyone, and as in life – some relationships just ‘fit’ more than others. At different times, we need different environments and relationships – and I tend to best help those finding themselves buried by work or school life, pulled in different directions by relationships and desires, and people ‘in transition’ (say, transitioning from work to unemployment, or dating to married), or those carrying a heavy burden.

To that end, I most often work with youth and young adults (male-identifying, commonly), millennials, young parents, creatives, artists, spiritual seekers, educators, other therapists and counselors, entertainment professionals, social justice activists, students, and LGBTQIA+ youth and adults.

If you’re curious if we might be a good fit together, please reach out to me to ask any questions and I’ll be happy to introduce myself.
