About

When choosing a therapist it is important to consider many different perspectives. First and most importantly, is this someone that you will be comfortable working with? Education and experience are other considerations? However, when it comes right down to it, it's about connecting. All the great tools that a therapist may have will be useless if you do not connect with them. I have heard from many of my clients about negative experiences in the past with therapists and how they feel like nothing really happened.
I believe my clients experience this differently. If I cannot assist and we don't connect, I will use my network to ensure you connect with the right therapist. For me, it is about the success of the client, not adding a client. I specialize in couples work am also certified in Anger Management (AMTP) and Trauma Treatment (CCTP).
I have been trained in IMAGO relationship theory as well as EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy) and enjoy working with couples. I also enjoy working with men who are not sure about counseling. I work with veterans and law enforcement struggling for normalcy. If you're stuck and have lost some of the joy of living and laughing, let's connect.
