In the old days, the path the traders took in order to make their living was the Oregon Trail. It was a rough journey, but those who could make it to the end felt rewarded. In life, it can be a bit like a trail. It’s smooth sailing, and then something happens to make the journey difficult. 

A counselor can help cross any trail life has to offer, and they can benefit you by being your guard to pass the trail as quickly as possible.

It was Irvin Yalom who said something to the effect that "psychotherapy is like a dress rehearsal for life". With this said, it is my intention to not only offer you support in therapy but to also help you generalize the skills you learn in therapy and apply them in your outside life and relationships. I specialize in anger, depression, and anxiety management for adults and adolescents. I also enjoy working with highly intelligent adults and teens who have a difficult time adjusting and adapting socially. This includes working with individuals on the high function...

My work in psychological counseling started ten years ago with people who had very persistent and debilitating diagnoses.

In recent years, I have worked most often with depression, anxiety, PTSD, eating disorders, and the transgender community. My approach is person-centered, which means that, first, I want to know what's important to you. Then, using all the tools I know that could be appropriate and hel...

Wellness is a journey; a continuous path allowing us to choose which steps we want to take in order to reach our health and well-being goals. We are complicated creatures, requiring individualized care in response to multidimensional factors that intersect our daily lives. This includes physical, emotional, intellectual, social, spiritual, and environmental health. Imbalance occurs when competing needs, including those beyond our control, develop into conflicting roadblocks. My role is to assist individuals in steering away from a daily “autopilot” mode and toward...
