I use cognitive behavioral, psychodynamic, and existential therapies, suited to your goals.
All too often, we find ourselves losing sight of who we were or who we want to be. Not only are we NOT moving in the direction we want to, we start moving in the opposite direction, toward guilt, fear, suffering, and broken patterns that now seem to make things worse. Sometimes things start with a major change, or other times it’s a nagging issue you finally felt prepared to tackle. Maybe somebody else suggested you look for help. Whatever the problem may be that has you seeking help, I hope we can work together to figure out where things went wrong.

My clinical interests and experience are broad and cover anxiety, depression, adjustment, stress management, trauma, social challenges, relationships, conflict management, family dynamics, anger, grief, self-esteem/worth, sleep hygiene, career exploration, identity development, existential concerns, and many others.
Professionally and personally, I have a passion for social justice work and am driven to help all people successfully navigate an increasingly complex multicultural society. As technology shrinks the world, we are exposed to an ever more diverse set of people, communities, ideas, and perspectives. Whether we are a part of historically privileged or oppressed communities, all of us are working to find our place in this neo-diverse society. More and more, I see this challenge represented in my clients as they seek understanding of their issues, strengths, and identities.

I work with adolescents, adults, couples and families on a range of things, from family and relationship issues to life transitions, depression and anxiety, grief, larger existential questions, and other things. A particular focus is helping people in crisis manage and make meaning from difficulties. My approach to therapy is supportive, relational, and client-centered, with a focus on how things manifest themselves in the here and now. More than anything, I try to create a safe space for tuning in to feelings, finding balance, healing, and working on change.

*Accepting New Clients* Why cancer now? Hearing the diagnosis of cancer can be overwhelmingly devastating, emotionally and physically. Treatment and tests can trigger anxiety, depression, existential crisis, or the exacerbation of traumas and conflicts. It feels like your life has an expiration date and with each ache, sleeplessness, fear, and sadness they become a reminder of that “c” word taking control of your life as well as your loved ones. Are you struggling to find some sense of it all? Are you on a quest for some semblance of normalcy? Are you questioning how can you continue to create the life you want to live?

I have no idea what an "ideal client" is, other than one that shows up for what they need and has at least a spark of motivation. If I can't help fan that spark then I am probably not the best fit for that person. I am typically drawn to helping those that have experienced trauma or are experiencing a crisis, existential or otherwise. Their needs and goals are usually not the same thing. And, I've found most don't really know what they want, other than something different than what they are experiencing.

My approach to therapy is eclectic and existential.
Suffering draws us to consider therapy, much as it sends us to any doctor. The suffering therapy focuses on is emotional and existential (a LIFE that is out of whack). If you are considering therapy it means that you take your suffering seriously and wish to seek a more fulfilling life. You know instinctively that more is possible. I have many years of experience in helping people to develop greater strength and more fulfilling relationships.

I use an integrative approach rooted in existential therapy, ACT, CBT, and mindfulness to help clients identify their strengths and values, reframe negative or unhelpful thinking patterns, develop healthier coping skills, and build resilience skills.
When we feel overwhelmed, anxious, or discouraged, it’s easy to fall into the trap of self-blame and doubt. It may feel as if everyone else has their life together while you’re struggling to feel motivated or stay on top of everyday tasks. My role as a counselor is to help individuals understand that they are not their problems, and how they respond to stress, adversity, and major life changes is a normal part of the human experience.

I treat a wide variety of clinical disorders such as depression, anxiety, OCD, and personality disorders. However, I specialize in the treatment of addiction to drugs, alcohol, and sexually compulsive behaviors better known as “sex addiction.” The reason I don’t prefer that term is because it oversimplifies both the subjective experience and the symptoms. For example, overuse of pornography, or countless hours spent browsing single’s ads online doesn’t necessarily involve sex, but it can be compulsive.
