The individuals who show up in my office aren’t here because they just want somewhere to vent about their week. They’re here because they want to experience lasting change in their lives, and are committed to the process. From the very beginning, I assume that my clients have the capacity to thrive and live rich, meaningful lives, even in the face of adversity. I’ve worked extensively with lesbian, gay, and bi folx, and as a gay man who was raised in Evangelical Christianity, I understand the complexities involved when queer identity intersects with faith identity. NOTE: I am currently at capacity for couples counseling.

Having studied and practiced psychotherapy for the last thirty-six years, I believe that the central element of successful psychotherapy is a respectful, empathic, and honest relationship. Within that relationship we will work on helping you understand how you learned to think of yourself and your place in the world. I believe that what we learn of ourselves early in life sets the stage for relationship patterns that either affirm or devalue us. The latter leads to depression, anxiety and other difficulties. Together we will work toward greater self-acceptance which can, in turn, change other relationships in your life.

Issues in your life are leaving you feeling disconnected from yourself – your dreams, deepest values, and maybe your own body; disconnected from a deep down sense of security – the “ground of being,” or “God,” or “the all," or disconnected from others such as spouse, lover, family, and friends. It is not uncommon for people to come to therapy and say, “I just feel lost.” You may wonder where the meaning is in all of this. Life is confusing. Sometimes you doubt life, and you are forever doubting yourself. You're exhausted! Showing up is the first step in finding yourself.

It is my honor to work with clients on paths of exploration, personal growth, and healing. Because of the pain that often brings us to therapy, I believe that safety, unconditional positive regard, and authenticity are of the utmost importance in the therapeutic relationship. My theoretical orientation in counseling is primarily psychodynamic and interpersonal within a humanistic framework. I believe that past experiences inform current understanding, and exploring such issues can be healing. Change can also be related to a new understanding of relational patterns and a new experience of relationship with the therapist and others.

I believe that in order to be healthy and happy, the individual must be focused on growth and change. If you are not healthy or happy, then change is needed. However, several factors complicate this simple truth. We give too much or allow our power to be stolen rather than exchanged; Fear, anger, and sadness can override logic and wisdom. How we act and think affects our experience of reality. I work clients to help increase their sense of self-direction, align their behaviors with their goals and replace the negative thoughts and behaviors with a more positive perspective.

I have also been honored to be recognized by Threebestrated.com as one of the top 3 MFT's in the Nashville area. I practice a systems perspective of therapy meaning people are comprised of an accumulation of family dynamics, life's events and attachments. I practice eclectic therapy styles to meet clients within their comfort zone. I utilize a sliding scale for affordable services.

Thank you for your consideration of my practice. I especially welcome your interest as the process and outcome of therapy are so connected to the therapy relationship itself. It is my experience that therapy is most helpful when it includes three elements-a highly competent and ethical therapist, a motivated client, and a collaborative and trusting relationship. The latter is essential because it creates the safe and supportive context which fosters enduring growth and change. My approach is integrative, embracing all aspects of the person, and always focused on the unique needs and hopes of my client.
