Working with a therapist should be one of the best hardest things we ever do for ourselves. We can only get to the best of who we would like to be if we can trust the person helping us get through those hardest things. This is what I have to offer towards establishing and building that trust. I am and open and accepting person and I will listen to you without judgment so that you will feel fully heard and understood. With over thirty years of experience, I have found both that we are not alone in what we are experiencing--others feel as we do--and that we are all unique. In order to live your best life, I want to help you take charge of your own life story. No matter what challenge you are struggling with, there is a way to see it differently, to think and feel about it more adaptively, and to act on your own behalf more effectively. Let me join in your journey to accomplish that goal.

Lance is wonderful. I respect his ability to listen, respectfully gear back to key points, and educate me while I unload my complex mind. I never feel judged and I feel that he has my best interest in mind. I would highly recommend him.

I was paired with Lance when I was going through a particularly tough time with my relationship, home life, plus the pandemic. I was not coping and felt very lost and invisible. Lance very quickly established a level of trust, warmth, and understanding. Within a few weeks he helped me cope better with what was happening, so we could move on to talking about me (which was something I hadn't realised I needed!) My weekly sessions were a welcome break from everything. They always felt like a sensible and smart discussion that calmed me down and validated me. Lance has a wide array of skills and approaches which he used to adapt my sessions as I started to cope better. My weekly sessions with Lance are one of the best investments I have made for myself in the short term and long term. Thanks Lance :)

He is an excellent therapist. I had a couple of meetings with him and I want to have more of his guidance and professional help.
