I specialize in the treatment of trauma, depression, and anxiety in late adolescents, adults and elderly individuals. I believe in the healing power of being heard, and that the most important aspect of therapy is a good relationship between therapist and client. I have extensive experience providing PTSD therapy for combat veterans and use that experience when helping individuals recovering from traumatic events. I believe in the capacity for people to heal from trauma. Additionally I have extensive experience working with men on issues such as anger management, relationship challenges, emotional numbing, and employment difficulties.

I see the therapeutic process as a partnership that allows us to work together. We examine the "treatment menu" and identify what fits best: Detox, in-patient, out-patient, individual counseling, mindfulness and meditation, dance, exercise, nutrition, a spiritual path and support groups like 12-Step, SMART recovery and Refuge Recovery. Addiction (or compulsion) is challenging, baffling, frustrating and a powerful teacher. To be free from craving allows such emotions as peace of mind and contentment to arise - I consider it a honor to help my clients step onto the path to recovery.

In therapy, I offer a warm, relational, strength-based approach to counseling, believing whole-heartedly that each story is precious and meant to be heard and regarded. I enjoy supporting children, teens, families and adults in developing positive ways to interact with one another and the world around them. My training is diverse and eclectic. ~~ Please note that, although it's not ideal, at this time I'm offering teletherapy sessions until life returns to normal. Families have still found it to be helpful (and also convenient).

Whether you’re dealing with new stressors or old wounds, therapy can help you feel better. The process of sharing your story in a supportive, non-judgmental setting allows you to untangle it, find the important threads, and weave them together into a stronger, more resilient fabric. This may sound daunting, but you don’t have to do it alone. We’ll roll up our sleeves and work together to clarify what’s most important to you, deepen your understanding of what’s getting in your way, and most importantly, take the steps needed to not just go forward, but to grow forward.

My goal is to create a place for you to learn about yourself, to explore your strengths, challenges and to notice your part in sustaining harmful patterns in your life. Sometimes these unhelpful patterns come from old defenses that once protected you, but over time they stopped working and instead of doing their original job; now they may limit you. Therapy can be a space for exploring your history and how your beliefs and stories change your perceptions of the world and of who you are.

That inner critic that's really, really mean. Painful reminders from the past. The fear that it might not end. You're coping as best as you can, but you feel stuck & crave a safe place to sort everything out. You're not alone, it's not your fault, & there is hope. You were never meant to live a life of crippling anxiety, despair, shame, or insecurity. Let's look at your story, find what's getting in the way, & stop the cycle of unnecessary suffering.

I want to acknowledge that both choosing to take part in psychotherapy and finding a good therapist can be daunting experiences. Compounding these factors, we find ourselves in a chaotic and unsettling time where many feel even more isolated and dysregulated than ever before. You're not alone. I encourage you to trust the process and where it takes you. You may have a clear idea of what symptoms you seek to address, or perhaps you don't know exactly why you're seeking therapy but feel an unexplainable draw towards it. Whatever the case, your choice to pursue psychotherapy is an important step in the right direction.

I believe it is in the context of relationship that we begin to build an understanding of ourselves and the world. Whether these relationships have been helpful, harmful, or somewhere in between, they shape the way we think, feel and behave. Therefore, as counseling begins we will take time to be curious about how your relational experiences have impacted you. We will explore your past and current stories. We will spend time identifying what is currently troubling you, possible origins of unhelpful coping strategies, and then together identify steps you can take to begin to find healing or freedom.

Relationships are the foundation of our lives. Family relationships, romantic relationships, parent/child relationships. These are the connections that make our lives joyful and full. At other times they can be stressful, unstable and uncertain. Navigating through valuable relationships can be confusing and scary at times.
