I am an experienced therapist who has the natural ability to make almost anybody feel comfortable. I have a compassionate and relaxed personal style, which can be good potential fit for therapeutic work with people of many ages and backgrounds. Along with working with individuals, I enjoy working with the interpersonal where there is often powerful opportunities for change. I work well with couples, because I am able to see multiple points of view and I have a disarming presence, which makes me easily approachable.

I encourage my clients to be active participants in the development of their therapy. What is effective for one person is not necessarily effective for another. The strength of my therapeutic approach is in its transparency and my focus on guiding and empowering you, the client, in becoming an agent of change in your own life.

My focus is to help adult individuals heal, recover, and feel empowered. I specialize in treatment for those recovering from eating disorders, trauma, depression, addictions, intimacy and attachment disorders, and codependency. It is my philosophy that each one of us has our own wisdom and capacity to heal. I am of the belief that no one is broken, nothing is missing, and people do not need to be fixed. Instead we need to learn the skills to trust ourselves and strengthen our ability to extend compassion inward so that we can recognize that we have been complete within all along.

I believe therapy is the development of a safe and trusting relationship between the facilitator and the participant. Therapy can be hard work and getting started can be scary, however making art, using play or being in nature can ease this process. As your therapist I will encourage you to use your creative imagination as a vehicle to understanding your inner turmoil, psychic pain or stagnancy. Along the way we will be implementing these effective tools in cultivating a more fulfilling life experience.

I can help with anxiety, depression, history of abuse, lack of motivation and self-destructive habits among other issues.

Never have life challenges been as great as now for you and your future. For we must improve relations with each other and our planet or perish. As a man you may feel frustrated in either work or intimate relationships or both. Yet the personal skills needed for work are usually opposite from those for intimacy. There seems to be no way to the success you yearn for. As a woman you may cope with anxiety or depression and succeed at friendship. Yet coupling has meant losing track of yourself, and good men seem to be hard to find. The way forward involves increasing our emotional skills and love for ourselves, others and our planet.

Feeling misunderstood and not quit right? Situations of trauma in the past could be a variable. ​ I understand trauma, the difficulties faced by us all when we try to learn past our intergenerational patterns. I am here for parents and caregivers who want to do their best for their families. I also welcome clients who want to be better caregivers to themselves. This includes anyone dealing with depression, anxiety, addictive behavior, unprocessed childhood experiences, or failure to create healthy connections with others.

Over the course of our journey in life, we are likely to encounter struggles that may lead to stress, anxiety, depression, and perhaps a lack of confidence in one's self. You will find that therapy is a safe space conducive for the healing to begin and for the growth to continue. You can once again feel in control of your life. Drawing from different theories and modalities, together we create a treatment plan that is right for you. I also provide a dog friendly space if you would like him/her to accompany you to session.

I believe that being raised in the mid-west gives my work certain down-to-earth, practical qualities that most of my clients tell me they very much appreciate. I often hear clients say "you seem to get me." Some clients need to hear themselves speak out loud in order to help resolve their issues while others need some objective, impartial reflective insight. Still others benefit from my years of counseling experience and information targeted to help with their particular problems. I offer all of these to my clients and tailor my therapeutic approach to each person's specific needs.
