My Approach to Helping

We live in a complex world. COVID-19 is a tipping point for many folks. I offer online support for people experiencing despair. Despair is different than depression- something that you intuitively know. Depression is a clinical diagnosis often associated with a chemical imbalance. Despair is a psycho-spiritual imbalance. It is the language of oppression. Despair is hopelessness and a loss of meaning. It is, essentially, the anxiety that comes from an inability to be oneself in a strange (and beautiful) world.

Despair is not treatable by medication, but it is treatable. Your are not alone. I have committed my private practice to supporting people like you in finding your way out of despair. I use Meaning-Centered therapeutic techniques proven to help people navigate the pain of despair while accessing their true Selves and redesigning their lives.

I understand if you cannot feel the truth of this from where you are right now, but despair is the call to heal. It is the soul’s demand to be heard. It is a dark, moonlit path back to your true self. It is our access to wisdom and integrative health. I invite you to schedule an online consultation.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I am most at home while sitting with another discussing the meaning of life and making sense of unreasonable suffering. I work for personal liberation with a true passion for the human condition. All of it. We, as a species, are designed to reflect and make meaning. We are capable of making beauty out of suffering. In fact, this might be our purpose. Despair is a result of our inner Self demanding to be explored. There is great wisdom to be found in this exploration. It is my honor to support people in accessing their unique wisdom.
