Martin Luther King Jr.
There can be many challenges when seeking therapy.
Therapists are as different from each other as teachers, the same content and purpose can be a completely different experience.
I hope this site helps you get a sense of what working together might be like. Seeking therapy takes courage, you're taking steps towards change. If you think I can help, I'd be honored to work with you.
While these are the areas where I've been most helpful, almost twenty years of counseling has allowed me to work on a myriad of issues with all sorts of people. I tend to be most helpful to millennials, but I'm here to help anyone live the life they want to live.

The crux of many issues involve a sense of control. Anger, anxiety, and change include a component of feeling insufficient control. When things get to extremes, it can even meet criteria for a psychiatric diagnosis. Everyone experiences control differently, but when anyone feels enough fear or rage, their lives can get disrupted.
I offer a refuge to just talk and be real, without judgement, and work together on what's most important to you. We can learn from the past, train to be more intentional, gain clarity of purpose, and live a more balanced life.
