About My Clients

Hey! I'm Ryan. I help people heal and grow... Generally, I work with adult men, women, and couples on a wide variety of issues including depression, anxiety, work-life balance, grief, relationships, and more... Specific clients might be 1.) new dads, 2.) men who have never been to therapy, 3.) women looking for a healthy male perspective, 4.) couples going from good to great, 5.) young adults figuring out who they are, or 6.) people seeking work-life balance or stress management.

My Background and Approach

APPROACH: Therapy starts with human to human connection. I think I'm good at connecting with a wide range of people. I hope you feel safe, heard, and understood... We'll talk about thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. We'll talk about the past, present, or future. All with the goal of helping you heal and change... We start with some low hanging fruit. Quick solutions or perspective shifts to implement quickly and gain some momentum. Then, when you are ready, we shift to deeper work to help cement the changes for the long haul. BACKGROUND: -- Educational background in psychology. -- Career background in people stuff- customer service, sales, marketing, account management. -- Thesis on father-child relationships. -- Additional training on working with men, postpartum mental health (and trying for a baby), and couples (Gottman). -- Also a supervisor, training the next generation of MFT's.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that people are doing the best they can with what they have... I believe that hurt people hurt people... And I believe in the power of human connection to facilitate change... A LITTLE ABOUT ME: Myers-Briggs: ENFP -- Enneagram 1W2 -- Strengthsfinder: Connector, Activator, Maximizer -- Boston Celtics fan -- dad to three -- husband to one -- passionate about truth, love, and becoming the best version of yourself.
