Are you fulfilled by your relationships as you deserve to be? The quality of your relationships influences your mental health and your mental health affects your relationships. But healthy relationships require skill, and without maintenance even innocuous issues can fester into serious conflicts, including resentment, criticism, defensiveness, stonewalling, and distrust. By examining your life and relationships with a counselor you can determine your future, avoid potential problems, and increase your capacity for success and happiness.

I offer counseling and personal consulting to help assess personal and professional functioning, clarify goals, and strengthen social and emotional skills. I specialize in solutions-focused online relationship counseling—solutions-focused so I can help my clients address the problems that bring them to therapy as efficiently as possible, and online so I can help people around the world.
I provide individual, couple, and alternative relationship counselling to LGBTQ and hetero clients. Clients explore issues that impact their professional and personal relationships, including communication, power dynamics, and intimacy, as well issues that affect their individual functioning, including anxiety, depression, narcissism, and trauma. I work predominately with clinicians, lawyers, police, techies, and other professionals.

  • Couples and alternative relationship counseling
  • Tinnitus treatment
  • Narcissistic personality disorder

Therapy Modalities

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT)

Innovative Tinnitus Treatment
Tinnitus is the experience of hearing ringing, hissing, or other sounds without external stimuli. If you suffer from tinnitus, I offer an innovative, evidence-based treatment that utilizes the latest advancements in neuroplasticity technology. The treatment is a combination of at-home listening therapy to recondition one's brain to stop generating the tinnitus noise and psychotherapy to help cope with the ringing during treatment. Clients experience from an average 25 percent reduction in the severity of their tinnitus all the way to complete elimination of the tinnitus.
Online Counseling
  • Communication that's confidential and encrypted
  • Receive counseling when it is convenient to your schedule
  • See your counselor from the comfort of your own space instead of having to trek to an office
  • Keep the same counselor wherever you go. Avoid having to retell your story to a new counselor just because you moved to another region.
  • Online counseling is more efficient: the more comfortable you are in your environment, the easier it is to open up to a counselor and the more capable you are of doing the challenging work of psychotherapy. 

Payment: I accept US$ and all cryptocurrencies (including bitcoin, litecoin, and dogecoin).
My Background 
I have a Masters in Clinical Psychology from Lewis & Clark College and a Bachelors in Psychology from the University of Toronto.
I have years of experience practicing in community mental health clinics, working predominately with veterans, Native Americans, and homeless and adjudicated youth. I transitioned to private practice so I could develop an agile practice that effectively utilized the latest developments in research and technology to reach my clients better.
I also contribute to the field through research, psychometric tool development, consulting, and peer-review. I have provided psychological consultation for several mental healthcare startups. My previous research was on the development of innovative measurements for fine motor skills, and my current research focuses on the treatment of tinnitus using mobile medical device apps. I also review for the journal, Ecopsychology.
