Rumi wrote, “Don’t turn away. Keep your gaze on the bandaged place. That’s where the light enters you.” We spend a lot of time running from our pain, trying to drown it out or stuff it down with distractions--work, relationships, media, alcohol. When we stop running, stop hiding, we are able to face our pain head on. Only then, are we able to be fully present and aware, which is the first step to acceptance and later, transformation. Partnering with a therapist can make this feel less daunting. I can teach you skills to manage your emotions so that they won’t overwhelm you. Together, we can help you find where the light enters you.

**I AM UNABLE TO ACCEPT NEW CLIENTS AT THIS TIME. IF YOU ARE A FORMER CLIENT, PLEASE REACH OUT VIA EMAIL**. I believe that we are designed dynamic and multi-faceted, thus we must honor and take notice of each important piece of ourselves. By using a Bio-Psych-Social-Spiritual model of therapy we can move toward a more comprehensive understanding of your needs and a more full experience of recovery, wellness and joy. While my treatment approach is guided by my own training and experience, my goal is always to tailor therapy to your specific needs and concerns not just a symptom or diagnosis.

Stress and challenges are part of living a full life. How you manage these challenges makes the difference between suffering and engagement in solving the problems that lead to depression and anxiety. That means building skills that help you live the kind of life that is meaningful and facing the issues that are leading you away from your best self. My hope is to focus on how to help you help yourself.

Therapy is an important first step. Finding a therapist who is the best possible fit for you is an essential part of that process. I provide sound, sensible strategies and tools in a caring, comfortable, confidential environment for children, teens and adults. My experience base is in helping individuals deal with stress, developmental challenges and life transitions as well as cope with depression, anxiety, emotions and trauma. Blending cognitive behavioral and interpersonal therapy, and attachment theory in my work, I help clients develop individualized, effective coping tools that transfer over into their everyday lives.

When we come to therapy, often our choices have not led to the life we desire. Under the influence of anxiety, depression, or post-traumatic stress, or the allure of substances, pornography, spending, etc., it can seem like life is out of our control. Rather than be controlled, we desperately want to be free to pursue what is truly good. Therapy then is an opportunity to not only find freedom from mental turmoil, but to realign life toward what is worth pursuing. The goal, then, is not simply to “not feel” a certain way, but to be drawn into something much greater that transforms our mind, our relationships, our work, our spirit.

Are you having trouble communicating your point of view/handling conflict? Anything you are experiencing; you do not have to discover the solutions on your own. With a fresh perspective, you will find your inner power, gain self-confidence, and know you are somebody who is enough. I have a passion to help those who desire a different perspective or want to see their lives through a different set of lenses.

I work well with clients who have previously found therapy to be lacking. While my clients typically find sessions enjoyable, I also push for each person with whom I work to utilize learned skills throughout the week! Life changes require effort but I also understand that it's hard to make significant changes when every moment feels like slogging through molasses. I tend to be more involved as a therapist than some, which is a choice born out of my own life experiences. Sometimes people don't have a fully-developed support system to help support them as they begin to make healthier choices. If that's the case for you, get in touch.

Now accepting Medicare. Stressed-out? Feeling lost? Struggling to get through your day? Imagine a life without overwhelming anxiety, depression or self doubt, but instead you can feel empowered, self assured and even just relaxed despite all of life's stressors. Therapy can help you to achieve that self assurance, sense of peace and increased coping ability. I believe that everyone is unique and has their own unique journey; therefore, therapy should be person-centered and non-judgmental.

What is it that brings vitality? What gets you stuck? Often times we don't realize, we are not taught, that the key to well being is our relationship with self and with what is actually happening, not what we think should happen. As we learn to trust what is arising rather than believe it is bad, and we learn to value and process emotions and experiences, we start to relate to our self and to life differently. Setting limits, bold choices, passion and clarity become more possible and natural. And so we find: our suffering, our symptoms turn out not to be a problem to be fixed, but a gateway to our freedom.

I help men of all ages work through social, romantic, family, and career challenges by improving their sense of meaning, knowledge, and self awareness during difficult times. Many of my clients suffer from mental health symptoms (general or social anxiety, depression, anger) that have negative effects on their self esteem and relationships. This creates a feedback loop that feels difficult to break, but is possible to overcome with the right environment, guidance, and an openness to change.
