Ryan's work focuses on affirming, validating, and empowering my clients to liberate themselves from maladaptive beliefs and patterns that often act as barriers to personal growth. Culturally competent, identity affirming, and emphasizing anti-oppression work, Ryan aims to create a safe and brave space that allows clients to fully explore presenting concerns from issues of identity, intra/interpersonal relationship issues, work related stress, and more. His approach is eclectic and, as you work together, Ryan will tailor your dialog and treatment plan to meet unique and specific needs of the client. His goal, always, is to help his clients own their power, and take up space in this world.
"Having my own lived experiences as a Black and Queer person, I understand how important it is for people in my community to know that they can take up space and be their full selves. That has always been, and will always be my mission as a therapist."
