Psychotherapy for Adults, Couples, and Teens

Gender: Male/Male Identifying

Languages Spoken:

Are you or a loved one suffering from stress, anxiety, depression, or addiction? Has something traumatic happened, such as illness, injury, a family member's death, or abuse? Are you having difficulty with your relationships? These are just some of life’s many challenges that can leave us feeling exhausted, overwhelmed, angry, or ashamed. If you are tired of feeling this way and ready to make changes that will lead to more fulfillment, joy, and peace in your life, then allow me to put my decade’s worth of experience working with adults, couples, and teens to work for you!

My approach is straightforward. I listen closely to your story, so that, together, we can understand clearly what is happening. Next, we explore why it's happening in order to develop meaningful strategies to achieve your goals. Finally, we implement those strategies, revising as necessary, until your goals are met.

I'm curious about what you do well. My insight can be helpful, but your strengths, talents, and growing edges will form the cornerstone of your healing process. I call it a success when I can help someone use their unique resources to become the person they want to be.
