I use a person centered approach that puts you in the drivers seat as I provide guidance from the passenger side through curiosity, patience, and authenticity. As a researcher and clinician, I'm not a touchy/feely therapist who speaks in sterile therapist jargon or feel good proverbs, so I best work with clients who are willing to do the work by vulnerably exploring and addressing underlying issues contributing to current suffering. We would be a good fit if you are ready to explore paths to healing and improving overall quality of life through collaboration, solution focused strategies, trust, and over a decade of experience.

The most rewarding thing I've been told by a client is, "They Get Me". I say this because my clients have been let down in the past by systems that failed to help or by other therapists who felt that they were beyond change. What I strive to create is an environment where clients feel they are valued, heard, and understood. The clients that tend to do best in my care are often neurodivergent or with diagnosed personality disorders due to how these conditions are chronically misunderstood. If you have tried standard therapies but still struggle to control your emotions, thoughts, or behaviors, I'd like to help.

My approach is to help clients become free of their emotional overreactions (especially recurring upsets) and break free from the grip of their past wounds. I also work to help identify conditioning and beliefs that my clients have inherited from their families which are NOT consistent with their own core nature. It's all about becoming more authentic. I believe that the more true to ourselves we become, without the old wounds, conditioning, and societal pressures (such as needing to be seen as a nice guy/girl or needing approval from others) then the more whole and joyful we become in our everyday lives.

Therapy is a process of self discovery, insight, deep emotional healing and positive change. I provide a safe and compassionate space for you to process your unique life experiences. Together, we can make connections, gain insight and question some of the underlying, unconscious, and outdated patterns that may be keeping you stuck or holding you back. My primary interests are working with both men and women with anxiety, depression, addiction, life transitions, relationship challenges, emotional abuse, and early childhood trauma. Additionally, I enjoy couples work and have extensive training in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy.

Hardly anybody I know aspires to be that average, center-of-the-bell-curve person. In different ways, we all deviate from the norm, which explains our own uniqueness. My aim as a therapist is to work with individuals, couples, triads, and families in a way that celebrates their uniqueness and "incurable deviance." By meeting you where you are, with who you are, in a way that makes best use of your unique strengths, hopes, dreams, and quirks, we can work together as client(s) and therapist to help you address your current challenges, get lots more of what you want, develop skills, transform, and explore new choices available to you.

As far as anyone can tell, you’ve got a great marriage and life. You’re accomplished, always loving to each other and close with friends and family. But on the inside, you have never felt so alone. Over the years you have tried to rationalize, fix, and excuse your relationship growing apart, yet it is disheartening. Something just does not feel right anymore, and you begin to realize you feel like you have a roommate rather than a partnership. Maintaining a fulfilling and loving relationship can be a challenge in today's fast paced environment.

I will help you reduce your anxiety and teach you how to manage your overthinking. I use a variety of modalities, including narrative therapy, mindfulness, and inner child work. I'll help you become aware of your thinking. Once we know the triggers that produced those negative, intrusive thoughts, we will examine why our conscious thoughts provoke such big emotions. These big emotions over "little" things are often rooted in how we respond to not being heard, seen, or good enough as a child. We will dismantle archetypes we've developed as adults to cope with the pain of not being enough and focus on becoming our authentic selves.

How does neuro-linguistic programming work?

A therapist using Neuro-linguistic programming might start by building a strong rapport and gathering information about the client’s objectives and any problem areas. Then the NLP therapist will employ NLP techniques to guide their client toward healthier thoughts and behaviors. Clients will learn how to better manage their moods and hone their communication skills. NLP will conclude with the therapist and client making a plan for how to integrate the positive changes into their daily life in the future.

What are some techniques used in neuro-linguistic programming?

NLP therapists often employ anchoring, so the client begins to automatically associate their trigger with a healthier response. Clients also learn how to reframe a situation to change the way they react to it for the better, and how to replace the negative beliefs that are holding them back. Many NLP clients practice visualization or forming a mental image of themselves attaining their goals. Every NLP therapist will have their own preferred approach with specific techniques that they have found to be helpful for their clients.

How long does neuro-linguistic programming take?

Since neuro-linguistic programming is not regulated, the length of treatment can vary greatly. Some therapists may only use NLP in a single session, while others may employ it over the course of weeks, months, or even years. It depends greatly on the type and severity of the problem being treated, as well as the individual client’s response to NLP treatment.

Is neuro-linguistic programming evidence-based?

While some people may find neuro-linguistic programming helpful, either in therapy or in their career or personal development, the science behind this approach is inconclusive. Most of the available studies are small in scale and have produced mixed results, and the commercial nature of NLP lends itself to conflicts of interest. More research is needed. In the meantime, practitioners must use their best judgment of whether NLP techniques will be helpful in meeting their clients’ individual needs.
