Thoreau said "There are a thousand hacking at the branches to every one striking at the root." In therapy, I believe our most valuable work is striking at the root of issues rather than hacking merely at the many branches/symptoms of the root. This latter approach often leads to resolving one manifestation of a problem only to experience new manifestations down the road. Whether the symptoms are anxiety, depression, addictions, or maladaptive relationships, it is worthwhile to examine the deeper sources of our pain. One of my primary roles will be to provide a steadfast ground of compassion, patience, and truth for your work.

You may be experiencing "stuckness" in your life, feeling caught in thought loops that have left you overwhelmed, anxious, in pain, hopeless. Yet, something brought you here – somewhere within you is an action tendency to move toward healing, growth, and connection. Whether you are dealing with anxiety, OCD, trauma, or existential struggles over identity, relationships, loss, or life transitions, together through therapy, we can tap into that healing energy already within you, reframe and make space for painful experiences, reconstruct ways of moving through the world, and create space for movement toward what matters most to you.

"The best way to predict the future is to create it." That statement is at the heart of therapy. So often we are defined by what has happened to us and we get stuck living in a space filled with regret, heartache and frustration. You don't have to live in that space and the act of searching for a therapist is a wonderfully bold and courageous start toward creating your future. My role as your therapist will be to help unlock your innate ability to heal, forgive, grow and prosper in the life you wish to create.

YOUNG AND ADULT MEN: We are expected to handle a lot: stress, frustrations, work, school, relationships, you name! And, all those things aren’t suppose to get to us. Why is that? Most people believed men can handle anything thrown at us and not be phase, and, we can...most of the time. But, that facade only lasts for a little while. Then, we crack. That's my story so I get it! We look the part, fix the problem, and stuff our emotions. After a while, it all begins to unravel and that’s when we turn to things to help us numb or check-out. In retrospect, those things worked well, at one time, but now they're just making matters worse.
