Therapy should be as individualized as the people seeking help. Interventions can range from traditional talk therapy to integration of arts modalities to address complex challenges. I work collaboratively with clients to find the most effective approach for their unique needs and situation. Therapeutic influences come from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), mindfulness practices, and music therapy. Client challenges can include anxiety, depression, pain management, adjustment to medical illness or disability, relationship problems, communication difficulties, self-expression (including artistic blocks), grief and loss issues.

Happily, at a young age I found that counseling really helped me grow. It was here I discovered balance, comfort, and courage. Once I learned the skills to manage my emotions, I began to trust in myself once again. I was able to set challenging goals without feeling I would be sidelined by my emotions. These emotional skills learned in my youth have grown with me and have given me tremendous freedom to pursue my passions, take on exhilarating experiences and land exactly where I want to be right now – as a therapist at Bellevue Family Counseling helping youth master their own emotional wellbeing.

I believe in people's ability to change. I believe in the innate tendency to heal. I believe that truth is hard-won, life changing, and the great equalizer between our past and our future. Before change can happen, we must accept and forgive ourselves. Choose your present and future by rewriting your past. It's hard work. But it can be the most essential and rewarding work you will ever do in your life. If you are truly ready to live in real-time, I am able to help you accept yourself and to guide the process of change.

I work with guys in hi-tech, mostly software engineers and managers, who struggle with some sort of anxiety &/or depression, often brought on by things like workplace stress, relationship problems, or big life transitions (like having a baby). My typical client leads an engaged life of achievement and focus, and he usually feels on top of things. But then life has come along and hit him with something his well-developed intellect can't quite handle. The result is that he feels stalled and filled with self-doubt - something he is unaccustomed to and deeply uncomfortable with.

One trend I've noticed is the high percentage of truly unique and sensitive people who walk through my door. It seems some of the finest folks wind up getting lost in this world, not because they have less of an internal compass, but ironically because they have more. In a culture that prizes quick solutions and uniformity, having a voice of one's own, ideas of one's own, puts the complex and innovative individual at increased risk for mental distress. Living out loud is psychologically expensive; together we will work so you can afford to be heard.
