Suffering is an unavoidable part of being human. All of us experience it. Anxiety, depression, substance use, anger, trauma, isolation, and loss can leave a person struggling to believe that something different is possible. You're not alone with those experiences. It takes courage to turn and face the mess of contradictions that keep us feeling stuck. I have a tremendous amount of respect for anyone willing to make the choice and engage in therapy.
I aim to help people understand their own personal strengths. To understand what is personally meaningful. The characteristics people already have that can help them shoulder the burden of suffering and move towards a more preferred life. I practice a combination of Existential and Solution Focused Therapy.
When someone listens and actually hears you, without trying to shape your life or take responsibility for it, it actually feels quite good. I have over 18 years of clinical experience. I take Aetna, Pacific Source, Cigna, Kaiser, Primera Blue Cross, Regence, and United Behavioral Health. Please see my website for more details.

I mainly utilize Solution Focused, Client Centered, and Existential Therapy. What they all have in common is the understanding that no one is more qualified to lead your life than you. However people might need some support in realizing there possibilities, or understanding and acceptance thru the dark times.
