I traditionally work with stressed teens, men that have trouble identifying their emotional difficulties, women that feel under appreciated, LGBT persons, and couples struggling with intimacy issues. I have a contemplative and humanistic approach to therapy that stresses the inherent value and worth of every person. How we come to understand our sense of self worth can be elaborated with sociological, anthropological, and various academic lenses, but at the end of the day, your experience of your life is what I am interested in.

You are intended to live life with a sense of meaning, passion, and humor. And much of human suffering is rooted in circumstances beyond our control. I want you to know that your sadness, grief, anxiety, anger, or relationship issues are welcome here. I care about your emotional health and would like to help. The first step in establishing a healthier way of thinking and living is having someone to talk to. I provide compassionate, non-intrusive methods and inspirational counseling that produces freedom of past and present challenges that may alleviate symptoms or reduce psychological and emotional suffering.

The decision to unite with someone for the rest of your life is one of the most important decisions you will ever make in your life. With this decision you formally and sincerely promise to have and to hold this person, from the day you decide to wed, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish until death do you part (according to God's Holy Ordinance. The vow is beautiful and perfect in the eyes of God however carrying out these promises are not always easy. And if I'm being honest, we can find ourselves not knowing what the hell we are doing to maintain our once happy union.

How are you functioning in your life and in your relationships? Are you joyful, confident, optimistic? Or are you feeling stuck, sad, frustrated, or lonely? Relationships are a primary force in our lives, and without them our lives suffer. Because relationships are so important, the way we attach to others within those relationships, and how we create healthy attachments, is paramount. I work toward healthier relationships for my clients; relationship with self as well as relationships with others. In our work together it will be our relationship that provides a safe place from which to explore change.
