Hello, My name is Max and I am an Asheville-based counselor specializing in assisting children, teenagers and young adults. In addition to individual counseling with the child, I like to collaborate with the whole family to identify the current issues at hand, and create a lasting plan of action that serves the entire family.
I believe in the power of short-term therapy, and work with most people/families between 6 and 12 sessions. I believe that ALL of us are capable of being a happy, whole, and peaceful people, but we ALL require support and introspection.

More Info About My Practice
Over the past 15 years, I have worked with children and adolescents in Buncombe County in a variety of settings. Currently, I work as an individual counselor serving male children, adolescents, and their families in the greater Asheville area. Although the style of counseling I use depends greatly on the individual client and their needs, I do like to draw from the style of counseling known as Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT). I believe that SFBT works to identify the current issue in a client's life, and then quickly addresses an action plan for the client and their family.
How Psychotherapy Can Help
I believe that people strive to be the best they can be. Unfortunately, when trying to balance stressors, expectations, responsibilities, and relationships people often experience difficulties in their personal life. I believe counseling helps us clarify and understand our thoughts and feelings, which increases awareness, and helps us make decisions.
I offer individual, family and group counseling. Together we will determine what approach would work the best for you and your present situation. Counseling can be both preventative and therapeutic in pursuit of being our best selves
My Role as a Therapist
I believe that most people (and most families) have the ability to overcome their struggles. My role as the counselor should not be viewed as the "expert", but rather as a "collaborator". As a counselor, I will provide a safe environment for you to identify and address your current needs.
