How can I help you? Was there a crisis, or an unexpected, yet, traumatic event that has happened in your life? Maybe you're just feeling lost, tired, overwhelmed, in-shock, and just in need of some extra support. Maybe it was an ultimatum, "Either we go to therapy, or we're done..." that motivated this decision. So here you are... reading this... are you ready? As your Therapist I will listen, be supportive, and help you deal with the crisis, trauma, and stressors in your life. I provide a warm, inviting, safe, and non-judgmental space where you and your healing are my main focus.

Some common issues I specialize in are: perinatal mood/ anxiety disorders, military life adjustments, trauma, anxiety, addiction, pathological love relationships, grief/loss, domestic abuse, divorce, blended families, teen / adult dating issues and LGBT+.
I wholeheartedly believe it’s my role as a therapist to assist you in realizing, cultivating, and accessing internal and external resources that you already possess. I'm here to support you in healing, reconnecting and making empowering choices to achieve peace and feel more joy on a daily basis. Stress, conflict, and pain are given aspects of this life. Together, we will create a safe space for vulnerability and strength; both are needed for change. Our sessions will allow you to move through stuck points in your mind, relationships and environment. My approach is empathic, direct, emotionally supportive and solutions focused.

There may be times in our life where we encounter struggles and challenges that impact us in negative ways. We tend to change and transform accordingly, but sometimes it’s just too overwhelming to work past our struggles without support. I invite you to fully explore your life through the process of integrating your conflicting parts within yourself by processing those painful memories and identifying those harmful patterns. I believe that healing comes not only from an understanding of the past, but also in transforming how those past experiences live in our bodies.

All relationships are hard, intimate relationships even more so. So many unmet needs, unrecognized wants, can make you feel lost and alone. You just can't keep going like this! The fights are ugly, or they don't happen at all. Living at the speed of life, you have drifted apart and don't know how to bring it back together. Maybe it is just feeling disconnected, maybe it was an affair. You just know that you need help to make it better, to make it what you had dreamed it would be. The good news is that you don't have to do it alone. Tenderness and passion are just around the corner!

I work with individuals in both brief and longer-term psychotherapy. I practice integrative therapy that is strongly grounded in psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral and solution-focused approaches. I strive to help clients increase awareness of thoughts and feelings, gain a better understanding of how their past contributes to their development, and gain skills in coping with stress and changing behaviors. I view psychotherapy as a collaborative process in which the client and therapist work together to develop goals and treatment plans.

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'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.
