Philosophy: Through the organic process of a developing therapeutic relationship, Andrew strives to create a safe environment in which the people he works with can develop an understanding of both their present context as well as their past relationships. His aim is to address the immediate concerns of the people he works with in the greater context of their life experience. The people who see Andrew are manifold, including children, adolescents, adults, and couples. Andrew believes that people are more than the sum of a set of symptoms, and thus strives to incorporate the whole person into the therapeutic process. In attending to relational, emotional, spiritual, and existential concerns, Andrew hopes to help people live more fulfilling lives consistent with their values.
Professional Experience: Andrew currently works as a therapist at The Grove as well as the Renew Counseling Center at SNU. Previously, he worked for a community mental health center for three and a half years as a case manager and behavioral health rehabilitation specialist, first working with individual outpatient clients and later with a group day treatment program.
