Before getting started you may be thinking....
” WILL I LIKE WORKING WITH HIM”…..??
“I hope he’s not like my last therapist. She was too passive. She understood me but never challenged me therapeutically.”
“I have so much to talk about. Will I have enough time to get everything out? Maybe I’ll bring notes? What should I talk about first?”
It’s natural to ask these questions—and even to have a healthy dose of anxiety about getting started.
BUT I WILL QUICKLY MAKE YOU FEEL AT EASE.
Clients have told me I’m down-to-earth, easy to talk to, and relatable. Sometimes, I dress very casually (depending on the weather and how much sleep I got the night before!).
I’ll normalize your concerns with respect, empathy, and understanding (and maybe a bit of humor).
I will visualize your story. We’ll visit the pain, disappointment, and grief together in a supportive, therapeutic environment.
I will be with you this entire journey. You will not be alone!
DOES THIS SOUND LIKE YOU?
Saying you’re “sorry” over and over again…
Are you really sorry? NO! In Therapy, you will learn to be able to respond with a level head (most of the time) rather than reacting with anger and later regretting it.
The other side of that coin: You say nothing to avoid conflict, and no one has a clue you were ever hurt or pissed off. You can learn to set limits without guilt. Don’t let these situations rent space in your head for days (or longer!).
Obsessing over what you “COULD” or “SHOULD” have done differently.
Others are clueless THEY ARE COMSUMMING YOUR THOUGHTS; they’re just living their life’s. They’re not participating in the imaginary arguments you’re having in your head.
Let’s bring you back to your authentic self so you can navigate life with a clear compass on what’s right and wrong for YOU.
DURING THERAPY YOU WILL LEARN TO
be able to have difficult conversations with your significant other… rather than reading about their side on social media.
You’ll want to see your friends in person instead of seeing their “best life” on Facebook or IG. We all know most post only the Absolut best version of themselves.
You’ll be present with family, enjoying quality time with them rather than feeling obligated to take and post pictures about your experience.
or keep living as you are and continue to view friends on your social media. Spending hours per day online.
NO MORE WASTING THIS PRECIOUS THING CALLED LIFE!
Unfortunately, most people never take a break to HEAL so they can get back to full living.
Sure, life isn’t all blue skies and sunshine. Everyone has losses, disappointments, and uncontrollable situations.
But few know how to harness their STRENGTH and remain true to themselves as they weather the storm.

Call today and schedule your FREE consultation:
I LOVE learning about the human experience.
That’s why I got a master’s in psychology focusing on marriage and family.
And I can’t stop sharpening my career skills. I take lots of trainings, read the latest books for fun, and ensure I’m aware of all the legal and ethical standards of the profession.
My colleagues sometimes tell me, “Hey, didn’t you get the memo… school is over!”
WELL, NOT FOR ME…..
This boring stuff does matter, but…
It will never take center stage to connection and understanding your story.
Just because I’m an expert in my field doesn’t mean I’m the expert of you or your life experience.
You will teach me much more than I learned in my grad school courses.
OUTSIDE THE OFFICE….
I have two adult children.
I’ve played the drums since I was three. I still play for several hours each week.
I also love water skiing, racecars, fixing things, and my work.
I’m truly grateful to be alive!
