About My Clients
I enjoy working with with a diverse population and use my experience and training working with those who have experienced trauma, grief & loss, and life adjustment issues. I have a unique background working with military veterans, male teens & young adults, and men dealing with all associated challenges; including healing and recovery from unhealthy habits that keep them from their full potential and life satisfaction.
My Background and Approach
I believe that avoidance of our problems and emotional pain actually causes more pain. I want to help you to move through that avoidance to help reduce many of your symptoms and self-defeating behaviors. I provide support towards personal acceptance and commitment in living out your cherished values and learning how to overcome self-constructed barriers towards relief and change. Contrary to the current landscape in managed mental health care I focus on longer-term personal transformation, rather than a just simple reduction of your symptoms. This unscripted and organic approach allows for flexibility and differentiation of treatment for your specific needs.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe all people, regardless of their background and beliefs have value. I have spent most of my life helping others to see this in themselves and to inspire them to live out their own purpose, finding and expressing their authentic self. The key to general life satisfaction is finding strength and balance in four key areas of living: Mind, Body, Spirit, and Community. Even when life deals challenges and unexpected hardships we have the ability to be resilient and make healthy choices that returns us to a state of balance. Mental health issues have a way of interfering with this balance leaving us feeling depressed, anxious, confused, and lost. A helping professional can be a helpful guide in restoring your balance.
