We've all learned or received tools to help us walk through life personally and relationally. Sometimes the tools we've learned need tweaking, other times we need some new tools we didn't know existed. If you find yourself stuck I would love to walk through a chapter of your journey with you to discover what tools might help you move on to the next chapter. My Christian faith has been instrumental through seasons of difficulty and can be incorporated into therapy for those that desire that.

As a counselor, I hope to walk alongside each client to facilitate growth and development in self-identified areas of concern. By working collaboratively with you in a supportive and empathetic style, I hope to challenge each individual into becoming healthy and productive. I believe that for real growth to occur, each client needs to be an active participant in the counseling process. By being open to self-reflection, hard work, and taking needed risks, the counseling experience will prove to be a rewarding one

My clients say things like...I am overwhelmed with stress. My anxiety is out of control. Does depression ever get better? I want to die. How did my relationship end up here? Court-ordered counseling, parenting capacity assessment? Why can't my ex just cooperate, it about the kids? My teenager is out of control. My parents just don't get it! I need an immigration hardship wavier letter. The flashbacks are so real. How do I make them stop? Real people. Real-life. Real issues. Talking to someone helps. That is why I am here.

Anxiety, depression, relationship issues, loss of employment, and countless other challenges can lead to loss of direction and loss of hope. Maybe you feel stuck by your present or your past. I've been there too. When the cloud of struggle keeps you from moving forward, it is important to share your story. You were uniquely created, and your response to the world is yours alone. Sharing your story takes courage, but on the other side is healing, wholeness and your fullest life.

Has life been getting harder to handle lately? I can help you get to the heart of the matter quickly and then we can co-creative solutions tailored to your specific needs. My clients describe being in therapy with me as being involved in 'deeper work.' Sometimes the life disruption you are experiencing may be the beginning of an evolution toward a new stage, where life eventually becomes easier and more peaceful. Adult stage theory was the central theory in my doctoral program. I also am trained in leadership assessment and coaching models based on adult stage theory. Life does not have to keep being so hard.

There has been a major shift for men in our culture. In a previous generation it was considered wise to "cut off" from your emotional self. That style is no longer effective for men. Today men are seeking greater self-awareness. They need to be more aware of their emotions so that they can navigate relationships with strength and wisdom. I have a relaxed style and I believe humor is a part of the healing process. I am interested in helping men move from distress, confusion and pain to clarity, peace, and self-acceptance.
