I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, adoption, trauma, and parenting problems. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse. I have worked in a variety of settings including residential, mobile crisis, outpatient, and in-home. I feel like that is important to explain as, it means that I have had experience working with a broad range and severity of clinical issues. I have the most experience working with anxiety, low self-esteem, depression, family/relationship conflicts, life transitions, and complex trauma/abuse.
“It’s only a passing thing this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines, it will shine out the clearer.” -J.R.R Tolkien. There are times in life where the road forward is unclear, and all you can do is take the first step. I want to create an open, affirming, and safe place for you to explore your path. There are going to be periods of struggle, loss, grief, joy, growth and celebration. Mental health work is not a destination but a journey created for and by you. I strongly believe in giving you the autonomy, dignity, and respect to make your own decision with a little guidance.
My approach begins with listening to your concerns and questions. Hearing your desires and goals about how you would like to respond to the adversities of life and then introducing you to concepts and strategies designed to help you respond to life's problems more effectively. My approach may include spiritual resources but I never impose my values and aim to be respectful of yours.

"Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadow." Helen Keller ~~~ I believe all individuals desire joy, hope and happiness and often get so caught up in the difficulties in life, they lose hope in finding these things in their lives again. If in some small way, I can restore hope which leads an another individual to joy and happiness in their lives, then His purpose has been fulfilled. Every person has a plan and purpose in their lives and my desire is to help them reconnect with their plan and purpose.

“Did you know that there are some seeds that cannot sprout unless they are first burned? Sometimes breaking is making. Even Iron can start again, and there are many things that can move through fire and find themselves much better for it afterward.” Kerrek, Critical Role. Sometimes we are confronted with difficult thoughts and experiences that can feel uncomfortable or impossible. I offer a relaxed environment to help you along that journey; be that depression or anxiety, life changes, grief or loss, mood disorders, etc. I strive to make sure I understand your place within in your story and want to help you get to your next chapter.
"You can't go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.” C.S.Lewis It starts with having someone there to listen; to you and your story. I provide a safe space to talk about the things that are hardest to talk about. For an adult that could be the grief of a loved one, the depression or anxiety that holds you back daily, or a confusing relationship that needs untangling. For a child it could mean talking about something scary that happened, exploring feelings of wanting to hurt themselves, or learning to talk to others in a way that they feel understood. Start the journey to healing today.

Do you find yourself feeling heavy and weighed down by the stress of the world? Looking for someone to confide in to share the load of your past wounds, present struggles, and future worries? You are not alone and there is help in sight.
I'm passionate about helping others become their best selves. At times one can feel weighed down by either their past or current situation.

I work with adults who are seeking greater connection to their bodies and innate creativity. Adults seeking personal transformation will develop their intuition and enhance their connection to self and others through dance/movement therapy. Whether someone has never danced before or has a movement background, this work can help heal trauma, addiction, anxiety, depression, and disordered eating.
You do not know how to feel normal anymore. You feel trapped, hopeless, or even different than everyone around you. Your closest friends and loved ones notice that you have changed and just not your true self, but you do not even know what that looks like anymore? You want to find out who you are so you can be the best at being you. Emotions such as frustration, depression, and loneliness plague your life and its hard to see a clear picture of goals, not even goals to get through the end of the day. Take a moment to notice these feelings. Sadly enough people think “this is just life”. Well it doesn’t have to be anymore.
Sometimes life feels hopeless. We get trapped in cycles of depression, leading us to numb our pain in unhealthy ways. It can be hard to see a way out. But if a decade of experience working in the field of recovery and a Gottman Level 2 Certification has taught us anything, it’s that transformation is possible. There IS hope. As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Tony has worked with thousands of people just like you, compassionately helping them identify what’s at the heart of their issues.
All of us can benefit from having someone walk with us through life's challenges. Reaching out takes courage. I'm passionate about building relationships with clients of all ages, rooted in developing trust and safety, to create the space and awareness to be who you were created to be. I believe we are designed to heal. Sometimes the strategies we developed to navigate the world initially helped us to survive, but they are no longer serving us, and are actually keeping us from living life fully. I journey alongside my clients as they reconnect with their true selves, rediscover hope, and step into a richer experience of life.
