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!
