About

People might come to therapy because they are dissatisfied with where they are in life, or they feel maddened and drained by intrusive thoughts, or pain and loss in all its forms makes life feel intolerable and meaningless.  Panic can make it diffuclt to focus. There might feel like an overwhelming amount of choices, and each choice with a host of pros and cons, with none of the choices standing out.  Or the feeling of being trapped makes it difficult to see any choice at all.   Often times it can feel as if time is working against us.  Navigating one's own lives can feel overwhelming.
I'm a client centered therapist with over 16 years of clinical experience. I provide a private and accepting space for you to explore your life.  In my experience, acceptance within therapy tends to lead to change. What's really important tends to become more clear, solutions tend to be realized, and comfort with what is distressing tends to grow.
I work with depression, anxiety, trauma, anger issues, males issues. More than that I work with people where they are at. I'm private pay (HSA included), which allows for the content of therapy to be truly private. I'm accepting new clients and seeing people in person. Please see my website for more details.
