The Beginning of Wisdom is Self Awareness." This simple statement is a lifelong process, and central to the work I do as a psychotherapist. Taking the time and space to know ourselves can be exhilarating, but it can be daunting and sometimes terrifying when done alone. Working with another person through the complexities of our lives makes this endeavor richer and much more satisfying. My work with clients is intended to be a shared, collaborative experience.

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.

Suffering comes in many forms. It is personal and intimate and often times overwhelming and sometimes debilitating. But you don’t have to face it alone. Many people have sought my help for feelings of anxiety, stress, overwhelm, and an out of balance work-life; others, for unresolved trauma , PTSD, and other stress-related disorders which keep people trapped in disregulated states of being; still others because they were unhappy with their life and the spark of their passion was dim.

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.

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 work in a collaborative/relational model with people who have had experiences that they have not fully integrated yet. I use talk therapy, imagery, metaphor, hypnosis, EMDR, Positive Psychology, and Sensorimotor. Often clients report being disinterested in a formerly distressing topic after treatment.

We learn how to regard ourselves from the earliest relationships we have. From the nurturing of our nature or lack thereof, a template of how to treat ourselves and relate to others is set. The good news... this template is not set in permanence and is subject to change with focused intent! I am dedicated to helping you achieve these changes. Therapy is an art form which involves attending to a Client's specific emotional pains.
