Congratulations on taking the first step towards achieving a happier, more fulfilling life. I know from personal experience how difficult it is to ask for help. Thankfully, you don’t have to take that step alone.
We all go through times in our lives when we feel unsure of ourselves, discouraged, overwhelmed, or depressed. We may feel stressed, stuck, lost, or out of control. This loss of control results in unpleasant symptoms such as depression, anxiety, stress, guilt or shame, addiction, relationship discord, and occupational problems. When confronted with these difficulties we each have unique resources, strengths, and coping skills that we may draw on, reconfigure, and enhance. Counseling helps us to use them most effectively.
I believe that the therapeutic relationship forms the basis of all interactions between the counselor and client. I approach clients with empathy and good humor as a fellow human who is humbled by and respectful of those who choose to share their lives with me. My belief is that the counseling relationship should be collaborative and individualized.
I specialize in treating clients with anxiety, depression, trauma, PTSD, addiction, chronic relapse, anger, low self-esteem, co-dependency, unhealthy sexual behaviors, grief and loss, and men’s issues. I am certified as a Clinical Trauma Professional by the International Association of Trauma Professionals and trained in the use of EMDR for the treatment of trauma and anxiety. I also offer counseling for clients participating in medication-assisted treatment (Suboxone) programs and are required to participate in counseling as a condition of treatment.

To schedule by telephone, I will need an email address and a telephone number. Once the appointment is scheduled, you will receive an email with information on how to access the Patient Portal.
Once inside the Patient Portal, you will find a number of documents for you to review and electronically sign. There is also a short questionnaire that needs to be completed prior to our first session.
