Counseling/psychotherapy is a means to the very end of oftentimes all but hidden potential for growth and development. As much reflective of sickness, it thus is also a chance for progress toward health and adaptability. Life should be about not only then life, but more life, and counselors help people to find the best that life has available for and to them as much others.

At the bedrock of what I do as a therapist is the belief that when we live out our values in our lives we are able to be happy in a genuine, healthy and sustainable way. Sounds simple enough, but there is pain in every life, even a well lived one. Our minds are built to maximize pleasure and to avoid pain. It is easy to become focused on avoiding feeling bad and have that consume our lives. Depression, Anxiety, Addiction, even relationship problems all have their roots in our urge to control how we feel and loosing touch with what is meaningful. Helping people get unstuck and live more meaningful lives is my role as therapist and is part of the way I live out my values in my own life.
