Like many people, Ryan walked many paths before becoming a therapist. He wrote for a music magazine, worked as head-roaster for a coffee company, made live and recorded music, and worked in libraries. But it wasn’t until he discovered his own mental health struggles that he found his true calling. Through trauma work and psychotherapy he came to understand that many dysfunctions are deeply embedded in our culture, and that long term healing requires courage, resilience, and a supportive community.
An avid meditator, Ryan utilizes both psychological and mindfulness-based tools to approach addiction treatment. He is compassionate and values creating a safe space to explore acute, complex, and generational trauma. He sees his clients as inherently whole with the capacity to heal, and will help them cultivate skills such as self-awareness, curiosity, and compassion in an environment free of judgment or shame. Moreover, he values inclusivity and is enthusiastic to work with any variety of lifestyle or sexual orientation.
Ryan utilizes a number of approaches, including Attachment Theory, Mindfulness Based Addiction Treatment, Polyvegal Theory, Motivational Interviewing, and Non-violent Communication. He is also trained in Brainspotting.
