I also have a special interest in Christian based counseling specifically addressing men's issues related to anger, pornography, and relationship issues.
Are you noticing difficulty with low motivation, low energy, or lack of joy in your life? Are you so worried about things in your life that you find it difficult to concentrate, relax, and stay focused with daily tasks? If so it's likely that you may be struggling with either depression or anxiety. Therapy can offer you the chance to learn more effective ways of coping with your mood as well as giving you an outlet to connect deeply with another person without the threat of abandonment or judgment. If you're sick and tired of being sick and tired then I urge you to take the plunge and allow yourself the chance for lasting change.

I have a strong Christian faith commitment but work with many people that don't.
It is important that my patients feel respected and encouraged. My job is to really listen and help you feel understood. I also think my role is to give you lots of feedback and not just be a passive listener saying, "uh, uh, hmm, I see, hmm". I am a coach, cheerleader, teacher, confidante, and accountability partner. The biggest complaint I have heard over the years about any past therapists whom patients felt were not helpful was the complaint that the past therapist was way too passive. I work best with those that want a therapist high in empathy but is not passive.

Do you ever find yourself asking, "Why can't I just get my life together, get along with people like everyone else?" "Am I the crazy one?" How about "I'm tired of feeling misunderstood, walked all over, like I can't do anything right." It's easy to feel stuck and alone when struggling in life and relationships, as if you're "too emotional" and destined for a lonely and shameful life. Many opinions about what you're doing wrong and recommendations of how to fix discourage you, leaving you feeling even more flawed and confused than before. Most importantly, do you find yourself feeling sad and terrified that nobody will EVER get you?

Connection is at the core of who we are, what we’re passionate about, and the most meaningful relationships we have. And yet so many things can interfere with our ability to connect: anxiety, depression, grief, traumatic experiences...how we cope with these things may inhibit our ability to build intimacy with those around us. I work with students and young adults, as well as those in mid-life and beyond, who experience anxiety, depression, relationship issues, or life transitions, that interfere with living fully you, fully now.

At various stages in our lives, all of us find ourselves feeling lost and disconnected from what has previously given us meaning, joy, and satisfaction. There are many reasons a person may feel lost and confused on their journey in life. Traumatic events can contribute to our inability to achieve happiness and self-fulfillment. These deeply painful experiences can lead to self-destructive behaviors that further suffering and perpetuate feelings of sadness and hopelessness, while creating challenges feeling content and fulfilled in our daily life.

"Let your yes be yes, and your no be no!" Asserting your own needs and wants while maintaining love and connection within relationships can seem impossible. The chaos of pleasing others feels overwhelming and our own desires can get lost in transit. That feeling of being on an emotional treadmill- working hard without the results you desire. Help to unravel some of this messiness seems difficult without grace and guidance. The salve of a listener who can also offer insight can be a process toward healing. Whatever the narrative is in your current situation let's figure it out together. Internal self love and joy is possible.

Even the strongest and most skillful people sometimes lose their way. Past experiences do not always prepare you for the unique challenges that find you. You can feel very competent in one area of your life, and like a failure in another. An unforeseen trauma can overwhelm your ability to cope. Nearly everyone has some time in their life when they can benefit from a supportive other who attempts to see the world from their perspective and help navigate the path ahead.

Currently, I'm mostly using Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy with my clients. When, as a child, we find ourselves traumatizing or trapped in negative circumstances, parts of our self system compensate by locking away that which at that time was too much for us to handle. Later, if we do not go back to this locked away material, the pain, confusion and injustice of what happened to us long ago, can get triggered, or, awakened, when similar such challenges arise in the present. IFS provides a safe way for that locked away material to be approached and reprocessed, allowing our core self to take back control of our lives.
