Hi there! I'm Andrew (he/him/his). Since 2013, I have been practicing with children and adolescents mainly, which does include working with the families of my clients. With my main focus being on children and adolescents focusing on teenage years, I have developed great experience working with individuals and families dealing with depression, anxiety, phase of life stressors, substance abuse, career and goal setting.
My main theoretical approach to therapy is client centered, meaning you are in control of sessions and dictate what we work on. I've found that this approach empowers you to effect change in your own life, as well as allowing me to pull from different theoretical approaches, including but not limited to: motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, family systems, and harm reduction model. Teenagers have the most potential for change and growth in a short amount of time, as well as experience some of the highest levels of distress, which is why I absolutely love working with teenage clients.
While working on my Master's degree, I turned my professional studies towards the intersection of the LGBTQ+ Community and mental health. Throughout my career, I have dedicated myself to advocating and improving treatment interventions to better aid the LGBTQ+ community, including but not limited to developing agency protocols, writing policies in accordance with the World Health Organization standards of care, and advising colleagues on cases involving LGBTQ+ clients.

Andrew was present and helpful during my time working with him
Andrew is very caring and a great listener. I have been to counselors before for different reasons and never connected with them the way I have with Andrew. He’s very prompt in replying to your messages and encouraging to meet your goals.
It's very professional casual. Meaning he is comfortable to talk to but can put his point across on specific topics in a clear and professional way. I am so comfortable talking with him and I trust him.
Very kind and understanding.
I really never thought I'd come so far and so easily, the experience can be just summed up to as natural.
I feel like I’ve really related to Andrew and he’s been able to relate to me more than any other therapist I’ve had. It doesn’t bother me that it’s an online experience, I still feel like he’s taken the effort to get to know me and what I need.
Andrew is a very attentive therapist i send him stuff all day an he has so kindly answered every question an sent me work sheets to help me with my process he explains the help very well i would recommend him to anyone i came with a lot of issues and he has help me on them quickly he is great ! I am very happy I got him
No one else has ever been so kind and patient and genuinely understanding with me without having met me. He is thorough and extremely intelligent and listens entirely to anything on your mind without interrupting before offering you multiple solutions to any of your problems.
Great! I feel like he actually understands what I'm going through and genuinely cares about my feelings
