I don't know what issue brought you here. I haven't met you. I'm not going to tell you what you need. I only know one thing about you: that you're here. So I will focus on the thing that I do know.
Disappointment is the fertilizer, and hope is the seed: hopelessness results from failing to see this, not understanding that the disappearance of the seed into the muck is part of its life cycle. Whoever hasn't overcome disappointments in life has never truly grown anything; the flowers they've received might delight their eyes, but it isn't the delight of the gardener's heart which has emptied its burdens into the flowerbed like rain and found itself filled with fragrance.
The specific disappointments, wounds, or ailments of the mind and heart take so many forms. That is the purpose of specialization in the discipline of therapy. I believe that a good therapist understands that which unites them all. The loudness of the room sometimes feels quiet, or the quietness of your passion feels loud; you may feel angry, or you may be disheartened at your lack of anger. The variations in our experience are so extraordinarily complex. I want to listen to yours, because that is where we can start.
Then, I want us to work on your garden together, growing to seed the desires for your life that will blossom, even being enriched by the mud, if we nurture them with the right tools.

More Info About My Practice
I will not tell you that the tools I have to offer are right for you unless your therapy concerns fall within my areas of major focus and experience over the past 20+ years. These are primarily: couples therapy, premarital counseling, marriage counseling, behavioral therapy, family therapy, relationship counseling, grief counseling, group therapy, depression treatment, anxiety treatment, cognitive behavioral therapy (cbt therapy), substance abuse treatment, sex addiction therapy, porn addiction therapy, and PTSD treatment. My professional development has included mastering seven different treatment or technique programs, each requiring their own background of study, practice, and certification or licensure:

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
As a mental health counselor, I help many people who choose to see me alone or who come with their loved ones by being their marriage counselor, family therapist, substance abuse counselor, porn addiction counselor, or sex addiction counselor. Their counseling and treatment concerns span the entire range of difficulties related to these areas such as trauma and codependency, shame, betrayal, financial and relationship infidelity, and the behaviors of the addiction cycle.
Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist
I have said that I haven't met you, and don't know what your particular needs are. There is only one thing that I know about you, as an individual: you are here. I know from over twenty years of experience how much it means that you are here. You don't have to be, but chose to be; this is important to you. I would like to talk with you, and offer whatever help I can, even if that is just a referral to a trusted colleague if your therapy concerns don't lie within my expertise. I'll be honest with you, and offer you my best consultation. From there, whatever comes next can only be a positive.
