About me

Welcome! Choosing a counselor is an important decision and I hope this page gives you a better idea about me and what it might be like to work with me.

First of all, why am I on this platform? Because I’m excited about the power of text-based therapies to transform and heal. I myself had an experience as a client with a text-based counselor and I found it one of the most helpful things I ever did. The opportunity to write to your therapist whenever you want, as much as you want, is a powerful thing, especially when you trust your therapist to understand and be helpful.

Trust of course takes time to build and cannot happen automatically.

My own approach has to do with empathy, trust, and a willingness to challenge you in hopefully just the right way. I try to get to know you and get to know what kind of challenges are likely to be most helpful to you: some people respond well to a “tougher” approach while others benefit from an approach that is more gentle.

My views on life: I think life is often difficult by its nature. And also can be wonderful. The goal is not perfection or constant bliss but rather improvement: Let’s make life a little bit better week by week. That requires courage and it requires kindness: learning to accept yourself and also to face down fears and insecurities.

So I’m here to help with both those things, by offering empathy, questions, input. Support and guidance. Occasional cheerleading.

I like my work and look forward to getting to know you! Counseling can be a lot more interesting than it might seem from the outside. Think of it as an adventure in personal insight and personal transformation: an opportunity to change, to heal, to grow.

My counselor is a calm and present person. He listens to me even when I am ranting and gives me the space to open up on my own pace.

Adrian is wonderful and truly takes the time to read everything I say and respond accordingly. I’m new to therapy however his approach helps me feel comfortable and open. I have already recommended him to a friend!
