About

I know the decision to come to counseling can be very difficult for many individuals. Taking that leap into the unknown can be scary (coming into counseling for the first time or seeing a new counselor if you have had counseling before). I believe that the individual decides to come to therapy because they have tried everything they can think of to improve their situation but have become stuck. The goal in therapy is to assist the client in becoming ‘unstuck’ and taking steps towards a more rich and meaningful life. I will do this from a down to earth, non judgmental, and accepting stance.
My approach is a behavior therapy (like CBT) called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) although I also uses techniques and ideas from other therapies based on what the individual needs. In ACT, I will work with you on getting your life going in the direction you want it to be going while also helping you to better handle the obstacles along the way.
If you are interested in taking that ‘leap’ into counseling, please feel free to contact me (email preferred for faster response). I look forward to working with you and it would be my honor to help guide you to a more rich and meaningful life where you are able to live your life despite whatever it is that has you stuck at the moment.
