In the Buddhist tradition it is noted: "all that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think we become". This quote reflects my psychological approach to the problems people bring to me. My approach is as pragmatic as it is philosophical, as caring as it is confrontative and as serious as it is humorous. This may sound contradictory but life is not linear and therapy is a microcosm of life. The relationship that develops between a therapist and the client is the heart of the engine of change that defines therapy.

Dealing with being overweight has an enormous impact on everything about us. Many of us manage so many things and don't understand why this issue is so hard and different for us. We can become critical and feel defeated. We do, however, have realistic solutions-we just have to unlock our obstacles. I specialize in helping my clients work through these all too familiar patterns in a supportive and empathetic way. Maintaining my own 100+ pound weight loss has given me tremendous insight on managing a lifelong mental battle with obesity. Treatment helps you cope with life's obstacles.

I am passionate about uniting with clients through painful and difficult seasons of their life. Many of us live each day with a lack of contentment, a nagging sense that we are not enough, but this does not have to become the norm. Challenges may arise that are difficult to overcome. Counseling is a way to develop better ways to cope with life in the present, heal wounds from the past, let go of worries for the future and help you overcome these barriers that stand in your way. I help clients gain insight by providing a supportive and caring environment, while also challenging my clients as my counsel is to always move forward.

Kudos! It takes strength to acknowledge your needs and therapy is an effective way of gaining insight to promote self growth and achieve happiness. Our behaviors and day to day interactions with the world and the people in it, as well as how we feel about it, are based on a series of different parts; our thoughts, our experiences and our life events. My aim is to help you navigate difficult events, repair unhealthy interactions and get to the root of the issue; reframing unproductive thoughts and negative experiences so it is no longer hindering and you can become a better you.
