About me

I offer a direct, active, goal-oriented approach in helping you find relief from the anxiety, anger, depression, shame, or whatever it is that leaves you feeling stuck. By taking a look at 1) What are you trying to achieve? 2) What are you trying to preserve? 3) What are you trying to avoid? and 4) What are you trying to eliminate? we can highlight the sometimes-complex interaction among your thoughts, decisions, actions and outcomes. Knowing yourself, making use of your personal strengths & your tools at hand while allowing your values guide you, you can propel yourself toward becoming the best, most fulfilled version of yourself.

I use a combination of evidence-based treatments tailored to suit your strengths to overcome your core fears and reach your goals. These include Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which can help with different kinds of problems and degrees of suffering. I don’t want you in therapy forever. I want you to reach your goals, and live your life to the fullest.

Geoffrey really listens to what I have to say. He then takes that and uses it to help me in what I need to work on. He gives great suggestions and always reminds me I’m human and not to be too hard on myself. I look forward to my sessions with him!

Geoffrey has been very helpful in guiding my to a better mental health plan. During a difficult life situation, he has listened intently and continues to help me gain perspective on what I can and cannot control. I can’t imagine navigating through such a difficult time without a therapist. If you’re in need of someone to help you, please reach out to Geoffrey.

Geoffrey is amazing. He is a great listener and very positive. Every time I talk to him he makes me think critically and rationally about situations. I always leave his sessions feeling uplifted, hopeful, and energized about life.
