I offer brief, results-oriented psychotherapy. My approach is to identify and resolve how specific, unresolved upsetting or traumatic events are getting activated in present day situations and contributing to negative beliefs about yourself in certain situations or repetitive, self-sabotaging patterns in your personal relationships or at work. I have advanced training and experience in helping clients understand and heal from many types of distressing events. Often we think these experiences are not a big deal or no longer influencing us, but they often compromise your ability to be yourself, achieve your goals and enjoy life more. See the Client Reviews section of my website for more.

Through Career Counseling, it is sometimes helpful to explore how we might be getting in our own way to being successful at work. Someone who struggles to maintain a job, changes jobs frequently, has been fired from jobs without really understanding why, struggles to develop good relationships with those they work with, or has other personal issues that work against them in their work setting - it might be helpful to explore how to make changes that can improve their situation.

The decision to seek help may come quickly if there is a crisis, or it may emerge slowly if there is a growing sense that life isn’t working the way we want. I support my clients in having the courage to be honest – to bring their authentic selves to the therapy session. Learning to pay attention to what is going on inside isn’t always easy; that’s sometimes especially true for men. I’m a supportive therapist, but I know my clients expect me to go beyond empathy to challenge them as well. We’ll work side by side to build the tools you need for the life and relationships you want.

To my way of thinking, psychotherapy is all about learning more about yourself. The more you become aware of what you do, how you react, and why, you can become aware that you have more options for thinking, feeling, and responding in addition to the automatic knee-jerk reactions you experience without thinking about it. This frees you up to choose instead of react, which can lead to all sorts of new and wonderful choices for your life!
