I believe that people enter psychotherapy because the ways in which they have been managing their pain are no longer working, they have become disconnected from their true sense of self, and no longer feel authentic. My goal as a therapist is to help you to claim a deeper level of self-understanding, genuine intimacy with others, and a sense of purpose and agency in life. Change can be difficult simply because we fear the unknown. A relationship with a therapist can provide a place of acceptance and safety from which to explore new ways of thinking and behaving.

I am a licensed graduate art therapist and counselor and am excited to work with you using art therapy and other therapy modalities. My goal as a therapist is to support clients in making meaning and finding peace. My approach may involve anything from us working together to soothe your anxiety, to sorting through unspeakable trauma. I aim to create a space that is warm and devoid of judgement. I will walk beside you and explore with you, and other than the occasional gentle nudge, I won’t push you where you aren’t ready to go.

I believe that therapy works best when there is a safe and supportive therapy relationship, where you can explore the issues that brought you into therapy, in a nonjudgmental environment. I also know that many people come to therapy to make some changes. For this reason, I combine traditional talk therapy with skills-based methods that teach you specific ways to address your concerns. I will work with you to meet your goals while also helping you to understand yourself better, and to understand the patterns that might sometimes get you stuck.

I am Chris Farley, though not the former Saturday Night Live comedian famous for saying you could end up "living in a van down by the river." I still think I'm funny, but I'm actually a therapist trained in Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) with 20+ years of experience working with adults, teens & families. In recent years, I have begun focusing more on using gaming and nerd culture to connect with and help clients feel accepted, developing Dungeons & Dragons Social Skills/Therapy Groups for adults and teens. If you are interested in learning more about how gaming can be used in therapy, give me a call or shoot me an email.

I believe the most important thing about therapy is empowering you so that you can make conscious choices about your life. My style is active and involved. Working collaboratively, I can help you define your goals and see what is causing your pain, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and problems in relationships. As a child, you learned ways of coping with your environment that were safe for you at the time. Those coping behaviors became habitual but, as an adult, no longer work for you and interfere with your happiness and your ability to function at your highest level.
