There is a major difference in 'feeling alone' and 'being alone'. Loneliness in the midst of crisis can feel suffocating, especially in our marriages and/or relationships. The counseling process can be a therapeutic friendship when all else feels lost and hopeless. Asking for help can be a very difficult process, but it is a vital first step towards healing and wellness. Let's partner up and journey together. Because no one should have to walk in alone in their journey.

Many of us are private people, who could use a little extra support and direction to overcome life's challenges. Acceptance and Confidentiality are two important aspects of Fairhaven Counseling & Consulting. Throughout my career I have learned that clients progress most effectively with an honest, non-judgmental, compassionate, but direct approach. I love watching clients rediscover their inner strength and begin to experience the joys life has to offer. I offer both personal & professional perspectives to overcoming trauma and rebuilding a life worth living.

*NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS* Finding the right person to help with life’s problems can be an overwhelming task. This is why I always meet my clients where they are at so we can create a roadmap for our therapeutic journey, with the final stop being where you want to be in your life. My approach to counseling is to create a safe space in each counseling session, which is built on understanding that each individual is a complex network of identities working together to create our lived experiences. My counseling is integrative of many counseling approaches, including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).

There are so many therapists out there. How do you know which one is right for you? I don't think there is any issue or problem that I'm not willing to try and work with. Of course this doesn't mean I'm an expert on every subject or your issue. One of the most important parts of therapy is the trust between the client and the therapist. This is done by establishing a rapport with the client and creating a safe environment so that she or he feels completely safe and comfortable to talk about his or her issues. Feel free to contact me and talk with me to see if we might be a good fit. There is no charge for this.

If you're feeling uncertain of your direction, "stuck" in your situation, and overwhelmed by the daily stress in your life, I would love the opportunity to help. I use several different approaches to therapy depending on your individual needs, and can help by working to identify and change unhealthy patterns, establish positive goals, and learn to minimize symptoms that act as a barrier between who you are now, and who you want to be.

My ideal client is one who is curious about his/her emotional life. My treatment philosophy is to engage a person in an exploration of their problems in ways that can lead to better relationships, feelings about themselves, and overall day-to-day functioning. My patients should find relief from their symptoms - whatever they may be - while making changes that will help them stay emotionally healthy and symptom-free in the long-term. It is my belief that therapy is a growth process that can only happen by collaboration and genuine trust between patient and therapist.

Life is hard. It can be confusing and full of pain and loss, as well as growth and joy. Our pasts too often crowd into our present, and our fear of the future too often holds us hostage. Sometimes we’re just at a loss, asking questions like “who am I anyway,” “why does this keep happening” or “why do I keep doing this.” Or maybe you are facing some inner conflict between parts of yourself, and it is getting in the way of how they want to live their lives. These and many other things are the sorts of things that often bring someone to counseling, and they are the things that many of my clients face. I’m here to help with that.

My work as a counselor focuses on helping individuals use the strengths they already possess to enact positive change within their lives. I firmly believe that as people, we possess the powers within us to solve almost any problem that life throws at us. Sometimes, as the result of things we encounter in life, be it: trauma, messages learned in childhood, patterns of thought that are no longer needed, grief, or other difficult life experiences, we have trouble finding the path to the answers within us. As a counselor, I feel privileged to help people find the paths to the answers they seek.
