Very limited spots available. Please check below for details. I have worked for several years with a wide variety of age groups, cultures, and mental health challenges. I enjoy working with both men and women. Much of my time has been spent working with adolescent boys and middle age men who are going through difficult transitions. Whether you are challenged by significant depression, anxiety, anger issues, or any other mental health challenge, I use a non-judgmental, genuine approach to help you find the motivation and self- determination to get you past your struggles toward living the life you want to live.

My specialties are working with adolescent boys with behavioral issues, anger/anxiety challenges, bullying, ADHD and school performance. Men 20-60 struggling with depression and/or anxiety who are feeling stuck in their present circumstances.

Emailing me is a much quicker and easier way for me to get back to you. These are the only available times currently. Wednesdays every week at 11:00 am, Friday weekly at 10:45 am to 11:30, and Friday every other week at 11:30 am. I have no other spots available. Please check back if these spots do not suit you.
