The greatest joy comes when clients break free of painful patterns and move to feeling comfortable with life. I've been a counselor for 25 years, with extensive experience helping those struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, and addictions. Getting at underlying issues of shame, loss of control and grief changes lives. When therapy works there's more than just insight; clients feel it in their heart as well as their head. Those around them see that they have a life worth living with more happiness and better handling of the inevitable potholes.

My initial task is to help you communicate a clear picture/feeling/sound of your unique dilemma and your desired outcome state. Once that is done, it is up to us to evolve a path to where you want to be, and to travel that path together until you get what you are wanting/needing. People often come to see me because they have heard that I am a "straight shooter." I have been a member of a long-term peer consultation group focused mostly on couple therapy and relationship enhancement.
