"You want things in your life to change, and you want them to change fast. I approach therapy from a practical perspective: part of our work together will be to help you determine what changes you want to make, and get started with some practical actions (yes, homework!). You can expect to see results fairly quickly, usually after 2 or 3 sessions. As we work together over 8-10 sessions, more deep-seated patterns may emerge, and you can decide to what extent you want to do this deeper change work."

"In working with individuals and couples I establish a relaxed space to see clearly. We collaborate on your objectives and overcome what stands between you and what you want. We look at what you have learned and what that learning means to you. It also means searching for your own meaning in a comfortable environment where you feel safe exploring your life. While I enjoy helping in all circumstances I have a special interest in overcoming trauma, men finding rewarding expression of their nature, and questions of meaning. "

"It's difficult to admit we are not where we want to be in our lives. It is painful when we are overwhelmed by sadness, anger or worry. Attending counseling is an act of self-love and courage. You know yourself, and where you long to go. We work together to help you get there. Whether your distress is acute or subtle, managed or uncontrolled, it will lead to a lack of mental, physical and spiritual health. Unresolved anger, trauma, neglect, hurt, and family dysfunction will keep you stuck and block you from realizing your full potential."

"My goal as a therapist and Clinical Supervisor is to increase your zest and vitality for life, to foster your ability to take action (empowerment), as well as to support you in having clarity (a clearer picture of yourself and others). Each of these goals, I believe, lead to an increased sense of self worth. In my time as a therapist, I have found that growth occurs both individually as well as in connection with others and that growth fostering relationships (of all kinds) that are created through mutual empathy and mutual empowerment are a key aspect of all of our lives."

"Occasionally, people struggle with adverse circumstances, relational difficulties, and issues of self-concept and purpose that leave them feeling overburdened, inadequate, or simply not themselves. In efforts to feel better, we get stuck in extreme and irrational thought patterns, act impulsively/compulsively out of fear and anger, and engage in self-destructive behaviors. At heart, each of us yearns for comfort over pain, autonomy to live our truth, and love and acceptance as we are. Fortunately, counseling can mitigate suffering by addressing core issues, helping people experience life with greater ease and contentment. "

I also do long-term insight-oriented work; identifying patterns of feelings, thoughts, and behaviors which reflect unconscious conflict and create barriers in relationships with oneself and others. Symptoms of anxiety and depression are often what prompt people to enter therapy. Some people want to learn tools and behaviors to alleviate symptomology; while others continue with therapy, after symptom reduction, and explore internal themes from their family-of-origin and how they are impacting their relationships today.
