My Approach to Helping
Are you interested in a different kind of counseling? Using a narrative therapy approach to help you connect to your values can liberate you from the influences of your troubles and help you lead a more satisfying life. I provide active, engaging conversations that allow those who consult me to see their own lives in a new way. The people who consult me frequently say things like "I'd never thought of it that way", or "I didn't know that about myself", which excites me and lets me know that we are on the right track. The goal of these therapeutic conversations is always to find the hidden stories and truths that have been pushed away by forces like abuse, trauma, anger and worry.
This approach treats each problem, person and relationship as unique, which means we are always discovering collaboratively together and I don't need to be an "expert" in a certain "disorder". Instead, I am skilled as a facilitator of empowering conversations. While I specialize in working with male survivors of abuse, I have experience working with people from a variety of backgrounds and with a variety of troubles.
I am enthusiastic about working with people who are hesitant to come to therapy, new to the process or worried about being diagnosed or put into a box.
