My clients are mostly adult males, 35 - 65 yrs old, struggling with anxiety , internal conflicts and existential issues. Usually they seek my services through the recommendation of a doctor, following a panic attack or a severe anxiety episode that led them to the hospital. Some experience their anxiety as a knot in the throat, problem breathing, racing heart, psychosomatic problems (physical discomfort), intrusive thoughts, sleep disturbance, a disconnect from loved ones. I am trained to assist a person understand what informs their emotional experience, identify their contradictions and connect the dots. Recovery as integration.

I use a humanistic, client-centered approach based on unconditional regard for the client. It is a collaborative relationship-based process. The aim is to arrive at a more integrated sense of self, less dependent on external validation. In the end, the symptoms get addressed indirectly as a result of the overall increased self-awareness and contentment vis-a-vis life and living.
