My approach is a mind/body approach that I call Energy Psychotherapy. I use methods such as Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Somatic Experiencing, and EMDR. Internal Family Systems Therapy forms the backdrop of my approach. The focus of Energy Psychotherapy is releasing the blocks to your own natural, peaceful, healthy state. These blocks are the result of painful things that have happened in the past. It inspires me to see people let go of their emotional burdens and find their own goodness, health, and self worth. It is a privilege to witness clients find their passion in life and realize who they really are underneath their burdens. When people are ready to heal a particular aspect of their life, Energy Psychotherapy can be very powerful. I am also a gay-affirmative and trans-affirming psychotherapist.

More Info About My Practice

Sessions are strictly confidential. Sessions by phone or Skype are available for people who do not live near by or who have other reasons for preferring a long-distance format. When seeking a psychotherapist, you will of course want someone who is qualified and ethical. But beyond that, you will want to know if the therapist has had success in working with your issue. Perhaps most importantly, you will look for a good "fit" between you and the therapist, someone you feel comfortable with and who will not judge you. It is completely acceptable for you to call or email me with any concerns you may have. I am happy to talk with you, and your questions are always welcome.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I work with many people who are grieving the loss of a loved one or some other kind of loss, people struggling with medical issues, people who have worries or anxieties, people with phobias, and people dealing with LGBT issues (I am a gay-affirming, trans and gender variant-affirming psychotherapist). All of these issues respond well to the Energy Psychotherapy methods that I use, because these methods are all based on a person's natural psychological health. People do not always realize that they have this innate health, but it is always there.

My Role as a Therapist

My role as a therapist is to help you find your own inner health. I do not heal anyone; people heal themselves. People often do not know they even have an inner core of health and often think something is inherently wrong with them. I guide, teach, and support people as they release the blocks to their own true self. The vast majority of people seeking help from a therapist are not mentally ill, but simply dealing with life's challenges. I see it as a sign of strength for a person to ask for assistance.
