When we encounter difficulties in our lives we are effected in physical, emotional, cognitive and spiritual ways. I work to help my clients understand how their history impacts them on many levels and how our past, overtime, creates patterns of communication and sets the stage that determines how we deal with life's ups and downs. If we can gain understanding of the past and connect the dots between where we began and where we are today, then we can begin to heal and create new effective ways to communicate, build healthy relationships and realize more fulfillment in our lives.

No matter how much we prepare or plan, life does not always go as we expect or hope for. There will be curves and obstacles in your life's journey, but it's not how many times we fall that matters or defines us, it's how many times we get back up. It's my goal to assist you in that process any way I can, provide unconditional support in a non-judgmental and safe environment, so that your journey continues as you strive to reach your goals. No two people are the same, so I utilize an eclectic approach that allows me to fit the treatment to the person not the person to the treatment.

Would you like to add your spirituality as a simpler, easier way to free yourself from emotional and relational problems? I offer deep but gentle methods that release blocks to your spiritual self - your inner essence that is naturally connected and content. This is done by bringing awareness, acceptance, and loving kindness to your inner experience, alongside prayer and conscious intention. These ways can resolve the root causes of personal problems like anxiety, loss, lack of meaning / purpose, trauma, addiction, relationship difficulties, and more.

Our life's work is helping clients achieve a better sense of self and happiness..more recently we've recognized that without good mental health providers this balance in life can be more difficult and stressful. However, through therapy our associates have our clients transform into the people they want to be. We see each client as an individual with many parts to their identity. Utilizing a holistic and systemic approach we help clients reintegrate the parts of themselves to function better as individuals and within their systems. Our focus tends toward a family systems based approach using behavior methods.

I, along with my wife, own and operate The Art of Living Counseling Center. We are focused on creating therapeutic environments where clients are invited deeper into their personal story for purposes of healing and empowerment. We use the dynamic metaphor of Story to help guide and organize the therapeutic process. Using this narrative approach, clients come to understand that they were given powerful stories that shaped and guided their development as a person. These stories impact one’s sense of self, relationships and family life. Therapy progresses as clients gain greater awareness of these inner storylines and their impact.

An awakening is emerging as you seek professional counseling. By noticing the personal imbalance within you or with someone you care about, you are paying attention to your deeper intuition. Perhaps the incongruities have to do with depression; anxiety; relationship dissonances; family of origin woundedness; separation and grief; parenting challenges; trauma-related experiences; or wonderment about your current being.
