About

You won't find any Freudian psycho-babble here. My ideal clients want to move beyond theory and discuss real-world, lasting changes. Sure, we have to glance in the rear-view mirror every once in a while, but it is the road ahead that matters. My clients who have shown the most progress are always the ones with the most drive to make changes in their life to benefit themselves and those around them. We can analyze your thoughts all day and there's a time and a place for that, but we need to analyze the decisions you make and the direction you are taking in life.
As my former professor used to say, the goal is to "embrace your demons and follow your heart." Our aim in therapy is to process what has happened in our past (easier said than done) while moving forward in a way that will maximize our sense of happiness. What is happiness? That is up to you. Each person is unique, which makes therapy unique.
I'm definitely an empathetic person, but my clients have also called me "blunt." I'll admit, I'm not everyone's cup of tea, but if you want change, we'll make it happen. The commitment is on your end. The guidance is on mine. Let's change your life for the better.
