The mission of To Bear Witness is to create a safe, non-judgmental space for you to grow and achieve your goals.

I aim to help you . . . .

  • take control of your life and the ways you cope

  • find meaning and motivation

  • move away from emotional extremes and discover a balanced middle way

  • learn to ground yourself, so you can truly experience life as it is happening

Some people find it beneficial to process their own traumatic experiences or difficult past events; if you choose to do so in therapy, it will be at your own pace and comfort level.  Most of all, I will acknowledge you as a unique person; therapy is going to look different for everyone, and our work will be tailored to your needs and goals.


I am highly experienced in working with issues related to: vicarious trauma, burnout, and compassion fatigue; addictions; bipolar, depressive, and anxiety disorders; trauma and PTSD; reintegration after incarceration; and existential challenges.


On a personal and clinical level, I understand how hard each day can be for people dealing with trauma, depression, addictions, anxiety, and more. But I also believe those hard days can get better, and life can have a new sense of meaning and purpose.  Contact me to schedule an appointment or ask any questions you may have.
