Announcement icon Looking for mental health support from home during COVID-19? I am accepting new clients and currently offer video and phone therapy.
As a therapist, my view is that therapy is the result of relationship building, establishing a genuine alliance with each other so you can make healthy choices. Being present-focused together in our therapy session, you are welcome to express yourself without judgment, without criticism, without worry. I support you by validating your lived experience, past and present. I empathize with your challenges and your impediments by seeing you and witnessing your struggles. By active listening I reflect what you share with me nudging you to consider areas of your life that you might be overlooking.
Through offering guidance to you, I propose questions that you choose to explore answers to. As a result, you are empowering yourself to disrupt the patterns that have interfered with your success and well-being. I accentuate your personal strengths, and I use them to affirm your sense of self.
I introduce to you new skills to practice as ways to manage triggers that may commonly arise related to family, friends, or work. This is part of the emotional effort that is incorporated in gaining awareness of your day-to-day existence. Within this process of functioning collaboratively we are creating the necessary trust and safety for you to change.

Professional Connections

When referring people to other therapists, I'm most often guided by the presence that a therapist has, and a particular quality that they bring to their work. I find Anthony to have a grounded, calming presence. He is skillful at doing enough, but not too much, in each session. He guides clients to find the right question that they should asking of themselves but aren't. Anthony is an excellent fit for clients who appreciate that therapy is often "Discovering more" rather than "Quick answers".
