Welcome!

If you’ve come to this page, you’ve likely found yourself troubled by emotional concerns or behaviors you feel deserve some attention and you’re thinking it’s time to do something about it. Good for you! I’m glad you’re considering reaching out for help. There’s no need to go on suffering. Take a few moments here to get a feel for the services I provide, the values behind my therapy services, and whether we might be a fit for each other in your pursuit of wellness.  Thirty five years in the mental health field have provided me with the extensive experience and knowledge I draw on to offer assistance and support to adults seeking to take back control of their lives, build new coping skills, and gain relief from anxiety, emotional pain, stress, and other mental health issues.

I particularly focus on helping individuals troubled by:

My values and approach – what I promise to deliver:  

Down to earth and practical –  I’m interested in discovering what works. And I’ve learned that what works for some may not work for others, in therapy and in life. Ours will be a journey of finding approaches that fit for you personally.

Honoring who you are – You’re unique. Nobody knows you better than you. Each of us gets to determine what we value and what we want to accept into our lives. I’m blessed to have acquired tools, knowledge, and experience you can draw from in creating the life you choose but in the end it’s up to you to decide what to embrace and what feels useful.

Plain talk – I’m not a fan of obscure professional jargon. I want to have real conversations with real people and have them understand everything about their therapy services and the ideas I have to share.

Directness – I value and honor other’s feelings, and work to have my office be a safe place folks can comfortably be themselves and feel cared about. Having said that, I think there’s value in speaking with directness. Therapy is a place to look inward and have another human being encourage our growth and speak to things we may not see about ourselves or our situation. I may gently challenge you when I feel it could be beneficial.

A gentle sense of humor – Life can be heavy. It can be stressful. Therapy is serious business, but it can be navigated without always being deadly serious. Sometimes sharing a touch of well-placed humor can lighten a moment, lend perspective, and connect people with each other.

Routine assessment of your progress and our relationship – A key part of my approach is what’s known as feedback informed treatment. Simply put, this is a way for you to formally provide me with ongoing feedback about your progress and your perception of the quality of our work together and our therapeutic relationship. This means brief structured check-ins each session that help guide my work with you and keep us on target towards fulfilling your goals. It’s been shown that formally implementing this type of system into therapy practice improves outcomes and client satisfaction. Click here for more detail on feedback informed treatment.
