My Approach to Helping

I work with men, teens, and couples as a counselor, coach, and group facilitator. My mission is to help each individual and couple improve their emotional well-being, relationship happiness, career success, movement through transition, self-discovery, and alignment with their highest values. My approach is sometimes very soft and sensitive and sometimes very direct and matter-of-fact, depending on the need of the moment. I work both indoors and outdoors, incorporating nature when possible as a \"co-therapist.\" You will feel genuinely safe to be the true you while in my presence as you work to heal traumas, discover truths about yourself, learn how to communicate more effectively, embrace your gifts and power, curb your ineffective habits, and get clearer about how to solve your problems. In our work you may laugh, cry, ponder, get furious, and surprise yourself. It is all a part of being a living human being. At the end of every session I email my clients a list of \"Action Items\" to consider and act on to further their progress between sessions. We have one life to live, and my goal is to help you make the most of it!

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

Contrary to popular opinion, most of the most successful people around us have sought professional support at some point during their career. People who heal their traumas tend to be much stronger individuals. There's even a term for it- "Post Traumatic Growth." Being attuned to your pain, inner blocks, and relationship struggles and reaching out for support takes guts! Courage is not the absence of fear, it's the willingness to feel fear but continue to move forward despite it. Seeing a therapist is one of the greatest testaments of courage I know. Emotional intelligence, balance, and self-awareness lead to self-mastery, which is anything but weakness.
