My ideal client is one that perhaps is not very sure what they need or want, but is open to discussing, exploring, and addressing any issues that may arise. They are particularly uncomfortable with being vulnerable, but will allow a few conversations to explore what their particular and specific issues may be, including past traumas and sexual abuse issues. This client would be open to exploring their spirituality (not religion) as a means of improving coping skills and strategies.

Sometimes life presents itself to us in ways that outdo our current means of coping. Whether this be due to death, relationships, covid19, mental health disorders, or normative life transitions, it's important that you have someone to journey alongside you. Through my many years as a clinician, I've worked with individuals from 3-97, in both outpatient and inpatient settings. My goal as a clinician is that you and I form a firm relationship built on trust, humanness, and mutual respect. Together working to find the threads that aren't yet strengthened and equip you to build your skill set that will allow you to thrive.

I work with a wide array of clients; from LGBTQ+ community members, survivors of trauma, those struggling with addiction and many other issues that affect an individuals quality of life. The ideal client for me is any individual willing to explore the therapeutic process in order to work towards building the life they desire.

Most of us suffer adversity during our lifespan! I work with clients suffering from life challenges such as anxiety, depression, divorce, job loss, grief, or low self-esteem. If you are suffering from any of these challenges, maybe it is time to take a different approach. If your current coping skills are not working, now is the time to request some assistance.

Therapists often give homework...I give you the framework for a successful relationship so you can give yourself the homework that works best for you so that "therapy" continues without me. Yes, communication does fall apart, but the underlying problem is the emotional reactions you have toward each other. I provide you a specific relationship action plan designed to improve communication, resolve conflict more effectively and rebuild trust in your relationship.

The divorce process is overwhelming. From deciding if divorce is the next step in your marriage, to learning how to co-parent or blend your family with your new partner, there are a lot of stressors and decisions you will face. You know you can't do it on your own. You’ve tried. Think of me as your guide through the healing process. Ultimately, I help families stay connected during the divorce process, find peace, reduce conflict and come through hard decisions like divorce as better people.

Telling your struggles takes a great deal of courage. In the years I have worked in the counseling field, I have been inspired by the journeys we are all required to take. Carl Jung stated, "who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes." In my work I help individuals begin the healing process to reclaim the power that has been lost. This involves the risk of examing who you are, where you come from, and where you hope to go. I specialize in chemical addiction and sexual addiction. I also have extensive experience with men's issues, including relationship coaching, shame reduction, and relapse prevention.

Telling your story takes tremendous courage. In my work I am constantly humbled and honored to receive those stories. As a therapist I work from the premise that people are deeply complex and multilayered beings. Our past, our present, and expectations of our future dictate how we navigate life's inevitable challenges. Because our lives are a constant state of transition, we have the opportunity to learn from the past and navigate our present through awareness and understanding of ourselves, and others. I feel it a great honor to support people in their transitions, and foster their awareness and growth.

Do you ever feel like you are rushed with too many things to do? Do you feel pulled between roles like being a mother, care taking a parent and/or working? Do you ever have frantic thoughts and race from one urgent activity to the next feeling that your choices are limited and others are dictating the way you spend your time? Are you having trouble focusing on the present due to trauma from the past? Are you overwhelmed with anxiety/panic or depression and feel there has to be another way?
