We all face challenges in our lives from time to time, for which we can use support. Sometimes that support comes best in the form of psychotherapy. (Please don’t let the ‘psycho’ part of ‘psychotherapy’ throw you. It does not mean “crazy,” it simply means “mind”—psychotherapy is therapy for the mind or ‘psyche’). I work Holistically, which means that I view every individual as a complete and integrated, ‘whole.' I see everyone as a complete fusion of body, mind, heart and spirit—that each of us is all of these, and are fully integrated and inseparable. My work is intuitive, empathic, heart centered, and spiritual, while remaining grounded in the pragmatic reality of living a real life.

Online counseling allows clients to seek help as needed, engage in therapy at a schedule that's convenient to them, and keep their counselor as they progress through life. I work with LGBTQ and hetero clients on individual, couple, and alternative relationship concerns. Clients explore issues that impact their professional and personal relationships, including communication, power dynamics, and intimacy. I accept US$ and cryptocurrencies.

Healthy relationships make healthy people. Unfortunately, about 50% of our society, while their parents may have loved them dearly, didn't get enough attachment and connection. When this happens, the normal / natural response is depression, anger, excess perfectionism, feeling uncomfortable in your skin, etc. While I may use several modalities, I am always being present and attuning to you in a way that gives you permission to be who you are. My experience is this creates a re-wiring of the "attachment / connecting" neuropathways in your brain. My clients, usually between 6 months and 2 years experience significant emotional shifts that allow them to feel comfortable in their own skin.

The best therapists are genuine, compassionate and insightful. As I listen, interact and guide, these are the values I hold most highly. I take an empathic, common-sense approach to exploring relationships with family, work and community. Trust, respect, and mutual understanding are hallmarks of a successful therapy relationship, allowing lasting change with safety and support. The goals: to challenge self-defeating patterns, deepen self-understanding, and participate in relationships with integrity, courage and an open heart. I work exclusively with adults and couples, using research-based methods to improve relationship skills and self confidence. Visit KinseyLeaseCounseling.com.

If you are feeling overwhelmed and are experiencing anxiety, depression, parenting issues or relationship problems, individual psychotherapy can help you by offering a safe place just for you, so you can take a step back from your life, make sense of things, get some clarity, gain coping skills and a different perspective. My approach is to listen to you and treat you as the expert on your own life. I will try to reflect back what I'm hearing, make observations, point out patterns and help you to gain clarity so you can make decisions and take steps that work for you and fit with your priorities and values.

James Hillman once said, "We've had a hundred years of psychotherapy and the world is getting worse." While there are many occasions where the validation and listening endemic to psychotherapy makes sense, there are times where we over assume that "feeling better" and "changing behavior" are the same. Grey Matters International, Inc. goes after the forgotten brain laws to behavior change that therapists miss when processing hours and hours of dialogues with people. Utilizing a cutting edge technology to facilitate the emotional process of change, we can make the therapy process way more effective, faster, and with less money spent.

I help clients find strengths and ways to manage difficult or challenging situations. I also help clients with histories of trauma and abuse come to terms with difficult memories, turning ghosts into ancestors. Ghosts scare us. Ancestors we remember, but they don't have the power to terrify us. Life provides many challenges that anyone can struggle with, whether it is a traumatic experience or a life long struggle to overcome anxieties, worries and depression. We all live in relationships and can learn so much about our strengths, challenges and possibilities. I would be happy to help you with understanding your relationships from a positive and strength based perspective.

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Psychotherapist specializing in therapy for couples, individual adults and adolescents. I practice Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) which encourages clients to challenge the thoughts, beliefs and assumptions they hold about the world around them. CBT teaches clients that they can be more active in choosing how they will respond to life. Clients are encouraged to look at their current behaviors and change the ones that are not benefitting them. Clients become more empowered and take control of their lives. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy can help put you back in the drivers seat and provide you with the tools you need to accomplish your goals.
