I am a guy who has experienced anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and trauma. In essence, I am a normal person who wants to make a difference one person at a time. During high school, I struggled with depression. I had been admitted to a hospital for suicide watch. I was miserable and had no idea what to do. I’d bottle up my thoughts and emotions as much as I could until I would eventually burst. During my college years, I became apathetic and isolated myself socially for 4 years. I struggled to get out of bed and barely had any friends. In my graduate program, I struggled with anxiety. I would often l lose sleep, became irritable, and struggled with my image. In fact, I nearly quit graduate school just so I can run and hide from my own problems. But, I would not have changed any of my life experiences because they made me who I am today.

Like many others, I often found myself as an outcast. I have struggled to find out where my place is in the world. I questioned if I will ever find a place where I belong. Generally, I was different from most people. I spent my youth silently watching the people around me. I learned to read people, I learned that being different does not make me less than others, it makes me diverse. My process as a therapist is not just what I learned through education but by experiencing life. At my Greenwood Village, CO-based office, I offer in-person or online therapy sessions. I bring my personality, the very thing that makes me unique.  I am blunt and straightforward, and I take your time with me seriously. I’m not your traditional online therapist.
