My Approach to Helping

Do you want long-lasting change? Do you want to finally live your life by your own design, not by default? Sick of feeling like your life is just flying by on autopilot? Specific barriers keep popping up? Trauma, frustration, anger, addictions, or fear getting in the way? I know what that’s like, and I know how to help you change what matters most: your time, your love, and your happiness. Together we can get to the core of your challenges, find what values drive your motivation, and how to get the best of this precious time you have. Let’s work to find your ideal, genuine self, like it’s the most important thing we’ll ever do.
Although I’ve worked in a variety of settings with a variety of people (addiction clinics, state prison, etc.), I have found that I have three areas I would consider my expertise. One is what I call the triplets: stress, anger, and anxiety. Another is addiction (chemical or behavioral) and motivation for change. Lastly is couplesfamily conflict counseling.

More Info About My Practice

It’s tough to be certain when making a purchase, and this is true for finding a therapist, too. It doesn’t have to be so daunting. Reach out! Ask me anything! If I’m not a good fit, I can help guide you to finding your perfect match. Give me a call. We can chat for 10 minutes and go from there. I have a private office and also offer teletherapy. Good luck!

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

Nobody is perfect. Nobody's life is perfect. I think what got me into wanting to be a therapist is that I know what it's like to struggle, to have lecturers instead of listeners, and to strive to be better. This is not to say that since I have healed, I know how you should heal. Just the opposite, actually. I know that you are the expert in your own values, thoughts, and emotions. I am just a therapeutic lens.
