I am trauma focused in my approach and I am sensitive to the effects that adverse events have on clients in their childhood and adulthood.
I enjoy working with clients who are having difficulty dealing with anxiety, depression, and posttraumatic stress as well as clients who feel lost and are questioning the purpose of life. I like to help clients learn what their true values are and how to live in line with them. Clients who have expressed grief over their childhood but are struggling with validation of their feelings may say things like "but I was never hit". Emotional abuse and neglect have a profound effect on human development. I enjoy helping educate on what Complex PTSD is and how it has affected the nervous system and what clients can do to heal.

Our life's work is helping clients achieve a better sense of self and happiness..more recently we've recognized that without good mental health providers this balance in life can be more difficult and stressful. However, through therapy our associates have our clients transform into the people they want to be. We see each client as an individual with many parts to their identity. Utilizing a holistic and systemic approach we help clients reintegrate the parts of themselves to function better as individuals and within their systems. Our focus tends toward a family systems based approach using behavior methods.

I specialize in working with adolescents and young adults. That being said, I believe that our natural state is one of peace and contentment. When we are feeling content with ourselves, not only are we more productive in our individual endeavors, but the quality of our relationships improves. Stress brought on by the demands of modern day living can rob us of our sense of internal peace. My goal is not to change you into something you are not, but rather assist you in finding the strength that already exists within you so that you regain your peace of mind and grip on the world around you.

I believe therapy is an opportunity to create a new path toward living a meaningful life. Often struggles or hardships we experience push us into following old patterns that may not fit our values or how we want to effectively live our lives. It can also be space to understand how we can be more fulfilled or effective in our many roles. I specialize in treating trauma and whether the event happened a month ago, or 20 years ago, there are effective, evidence-based strategies we can use to grow beyond that harm. I also enjoy working with people in the areas of self-esteem, anxiety, attachment, relationships, & LGBTQIA+ issues.

Being disconnected from yourself or stuck in a joyless existence is not something you must simply endure. The lingering effects of trauma caused by overwhelming events can prevent you from experiencing the present fully or anticipating the future with hope. Imagine living life without the frenzy of distraction, the seduction of escape or the public relations campaign of always being “fine”. How would it feel to no longer be controlled by another person or event? What would it be like to be in relationships without anxiety, fear or intimidation? What if you laughed more, worried less, and interacted with yourself compassionately?

I, along with my wife, own and operate The Art of Living Counseling Center. We are focused on creating therapeutic environments where clients are invited deeper into their personal story for purposes of healing and empowerment. We use the dynamic metaphor of Story to help guide and organize the therapeutic process. Using this narrative approach, clients come to understand that they were given powerful stories that shaped and guided their development as a person. These stories impact one’s sense of self, relationships and family life. Therapy progresses as clients gain greater awareness of these inner storylines and their impact.
