I have ten years of clinical experience working with individuals, couples, and families. I also train master's and doctoral level student therapists at a local university to help clients confront any life challenges. Throughout my career, I have never met a truly "broken" person incapable of making positive changes, and I work collaboratively with my clients to resolve their unique issues. I intentionally keep a small practice to provide clients with dedicated and individualized attention. I return voicemail messages within 24 hours.

I have a heart to help people who are hurting and looking for relief, change, and hope. Maybe you're looking at life right now and it looks bleak, but you don't know what's wrong and much less how to fix it, or maybe you know exactly what your problem is, but you don’t know what to do about it or you just need an unbiased ear to sit with you, listen to you, and walk through the struggle with you as we work to find a solution. Regardless of your situation, I would love to help.

I teach people how to be effective therapists at a local university graduate program as well as conducting workshops around the world and publishing extensively on how to help therapists be effective in helping people improve their marital, family, and business relationships. My private practice is intentionally small and individualized - My personal ethics are such that first interviews are designed for the client to have an opportunity to meet with me and decide if they think I can help them, and equally important, for me to decide if I think I can be of help. If I cannot help I will fire myself and recommend an appropriate referral. I do not accept insurance.

As a counselor, it is my goal to provide my clients with a solid counseling relationship built on trust, empathy, and unconditional positive regard.

I am committed to meeting you where you are. I work hard to understand and validate what it is like to be you. So, your goals for therapy are the crucial foundation for our work together. If you experience that I really do understand and validate you and your goals, then I believe you will allow me to challenge you in helpful ways when it becomes difficult to make significant changes that you want to make. I also believe that work with at least five dimensions (MIND, BODY, SOUL, SYSTEM, and STORY) in an organic and natural way can help you succeed in meeting your goals, even if other approaches have not been successful.
