The process of learning and accepting who we truly are and then living an authentic life as ourselves can be surprisingly challenging, requiring tenacity and resilience.
My work with clients has included addressing depression, anxiety, self-esteem and identity concerns as well as the social/emotional challenges that accompany ADHD, Autism and other disabilities. As a self avowed ‘nerd therapist’ with ADHD myself, I am passionate about working with fellow nerds, outcasts, artists or creatives who may feel out of sync with a mainstream approach. I am particularly adept at assisting clients in identifying their strengths and talents and applying them toward career, educational and other life goals. I am sex positive and endeavor to be an ally to LGBTQ+, poly and kink communities.

Every now and then life has a way of hitting us hard. I believe that when individuals enter counseling they are feeling gridlocked in their current situation and need assistance navigating their way out of the storms. I see counseling as a process by which I guide my client in exploration and identification of their needs. Through cognitive and somatic techniques I help raise clients' awareness of ineffective behaviors, toxic cycles, and distorted thinking patterns that may be standing in the way of the changes they desire in life. I believe that transformation begins when we slow down, tune into our bodies, and honor what comes up.

As we increase our strategy options from a consciousness of our internal dialog and body information we establish healthier connections and create a higher quality of life.
We all want to feel joyful and fulfilled in our lives and relationships. The 30+ years I have been in practice include running treatment centers, teaching / college level, national seminars, and training other therapists. I am licensed as both a clinical social worker and an addictions therapist. My experience and training has allowed me to integrate clinical knowledge with cultural understandings from the elders I grew up with. I help people achieve change through insight and solutions based in consciousness of internal and external conflicts.

Are you ready to live an open life of freedom, get to the bottom of and move past destructive sexual behaviors? Call, text, or email now to set up a short 15-minute consultation to get started on your journey of healing today.
Are you battling unwanted sexual behavior? Are you tired of carrying around this dark secret? Often we don’t talk about these things or seek help because of the embarrassment or shame that typically surrounds them. We think things like, “if they knew this, they would leave me” or “Keeping this secret keeps the peace,” but you just don’t know how long you can keep up the lie. The truth is that trying to get passed something like a porn addiction on your own doesn’t work and hasn’t worked.

We are here and now; but is your past a healthy part of it? The past can be a time of learning and moving forward, or it can be a red light in our lives and freeze us in that moment of time. It can paralyze us. Or, it can have us living in a world of caution lights where we fearfully drift through them, unaware of the present or future, or vigilantly white knuckling our way, just existing and just “getting through” each day. How we come to terms with the past, forgiving our mistakes and others’ faults can catapult us into a more peaceful and fulfilling life.

I look forward to offering proven clinical treatment methods provide support to you and your loved ones, and help you make adjustments in life to create lasting change.
These days people have more difficulties to face and fewer resources to assist in making sense of what is going on around them. Depression, anxiety, and addiction are all on the rise, which effect one's career, family life, and relationships. Constant demands of modern life often clouds the dreams and aspirations we once had. Our personal goals are hindered by our own demons or the damage of situations surrounded by hurt and disappointment outside of our control. Perhaps you are one of the many people in this country today dealing with debt, divorce, substance abuse, relational and family struggles.

Life Coaching Therapists

What can I expect from life coaching?

Clients and coaches will typically start by identifying the problem area(s) that the client hopes to address—then, the coach will help the client brainstorm potential solutions and explore concrete techniques to help the client attain their goals. Coaching is typically short-term and focused on finding solutions in the here and now, rather than exploring a client’s past. In addition to strategies aimed at the client’s specific concerns, coaches may encourage general stress management techniques such as meditation.

Can a life coach help treat anxiety?

Because the majority of life coaches are not licensed clinicians, they are not qualified to diagnose or treat anxiety. Anyone struggling with anxiety or another mental health condition should seek help from a licensed mental health practitioner. However, some coaching clients who struggle with subclinical anxiety report that working with their coach on other problems—such as career dissatisfaction or unhealthy habits—has a positive effect on their anxiety.

Can life coaching be done online?

Yes. While life coaching often happens in person, many coaches conduct sessions over the phone or via online platforms such as Zoom or Skype. Because life coaches are not subject to local licensing regulations in the same way that therapists are, they are able to see clients who live in other locations.

How long does life coaching last?

Life coaching tends to be a shorter-term process than therapy, though it does not always unfold over a specific period of time and is instead based on the coach’s or the client’s preferences. Coaching often takes place over three to 12 months but may be shorter or longer if necessary.
