People find their way to therapy for various reasons. You may be in a crisis or you may want to work on long-standing behaviors that are no longer working for you. Maybe negative self-talk is getting in your way, or repeating the same behavior expecting different results and aren't sure how to make the necessary changes. Therapy is a process, finding the right therapist is important. I offer a free phone consultation to help you in your search.

I've been told I'm the anti-therapist. Done in good humor I suppose, my approach is to learn alongside you what's been bringing pain into your life. Many times people don't go see someone who can help because of the preconceptions about what someone like me might be thinking. "Is he judging me? Does he think I'm strange for thinking these things?" etc. This may be because you've had someone say those exact things to you as you confided in them for support or counsel. If this sounds about right I might be a good fit.

Do you battle with feeling anxious, panicky, sad, trapped, or helpless? Is it hard to enjoy things that you used to do? Anxiety and depression can affect every aspect of your life - your relationships and family life, your work or schooling, even your self-care and physical well-being. Since 1990 I have helped hundreds of people find greater understanding of their frightening or demoralizing feelings and learn the skills they need to become confident, engaged, and even passionate about life. There are things in life you can't control...anxiety and depression are not among them.

I work with people to help them create meaning and connection in their lives to achieve their goals. Each person has unique desires, goals, and values that are meaningful for them and contribute to their behavior. Human beings also share the same basic needs for living a life that is sustaining for health, safety, and wellbeing. A healthy curiosity to understand the reason for the development of our thinking patterns, respect for our feelings, and a willingness be open to new experiences with kindness to ourselves gives us courage to grow and change.

Seeking therapy is not easy, and you deserve the support that you’re looking for. I approach therapy from a strengths-based perspective, and my mission is to partner up with motivated individuals looking to improve their quality of life. I spend the first few sessions getting to know you as a person and learning about the issues that brought you to therapy. My job is to listen to you and provide insight and support to help you make sense of what is causing you distress and how we can move forward to help you live a happier and healthier life.

Hi there! I know finding a therapist can be daunting, and hope my profile helps you to decide if we will be a good fit. I have been doing this work for several years and find that providing a safe place for people to find hope, peace, healing, connection, and laughter is the most rewarding (and sometimes hardest) work we do in therapy. I have worked with clients and families of all ages and backgrounds and have found that we usually ask for help when we no longer know how to make things better. We all deserve healthy, hopeful lives and relationships, and therapy is a place to build the skills to help you find those things.

We are all in the process of change, it is an unavoidable element of life. The trick is to have the willingness to look at how we wish to change, and take steps to do so. This may involve simply developing a different perspective on some struggle or other. No matter what the problem is though it takes courage, to allow another person to see our vulnerability. With that willingness there are very few problems which cannot be significantly improved or solved. Encouragement from a person who understands what we struggle with can help empower us to take action to feel better and be happier..

I seek to offer a welcoming and safe space for you to explore your sense of self and the challenges you may be facing. Due to symptoms that hinder our ability to solve problems and thrive, we can become blocked from experiencing the full range of human emotion. Our sessions will increase your capacity to feel joy, playfulness and a sense of purpose in your life. My therapeutic style is collaborative, transparent and playful while using an integrative mind-body approach. I will encourage you to tap into the creativity and openness that allows you to gain new perspective and discover your own capacity to make meaningful change.

Prior to becoming a Marriage and Family Therapist, I worked as an Intensive Care Nurse and Educator. I have witnessed the importance of integrating mind, body and spirit in the role of healing. In my work I utilize techniques from a variety of theories in an attempt to identify and resolve issues you are facing. To achieve your goals, I employ Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) for trauma, Guided Imagery, Expressive Arts and Sandtray. I help clients reclaim parts of self eclipsed by childhood woundedness. My focus is to empower you to find your authentic voice and inner wisdom.
