About My Clients
My clients seek me out to find practical help in the areas of anxiety, depression, trauma resolution, and unwanted sexual behavior including compulsive pornography use. My clients resonate with the following: they are interested in exploring their unwanted symptoms, are ready to make significant change, and want their faith integrated into the therapy process.
My Background and Approach
The approach I provide comprises tools that have been honed over the entirety of my career to helping people just like you. My goal is for you to have at least 3 different tools and techniques that you can carry at all times. This way, wherever you go, you'll always have access to in-the-moment help that can quickly create change and relief. We'll work collaboratively to explore the specific areas you are struggling at the moment. I will balance present moment solutions with an eye to understand and address potential root issues. We will start by learning about your brain-body connection so that you can understand how to best step out of unhelpful patterns. I have utilized the last 10 years of my life to learn how to work with men while attending trainings that teach leading edge techniques. In short, I feel confident that we can find realistic and helpful solutions to the problems you are facing. I look forward to watching you grow in resilience and get your life back.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe that what may be "dysfunctional" for you now was at one time functional. The key is bringing kindness and curiosity to that "dysfunctional" pattern so you can begin to transform it. I believe that people best grow when they have secure relationships in their life. I also believe that within a secure relationship, people have the capacity to learn, unlearn, or relearn whatever is needed for the next step in their life. I believe in seeing people holistically, understanding that peoples' stories and challenges cannot be reduced to a set of symptoms but that help may come from many different areas. Most importantly, I believe that genuine healing is possible. I am an active participant in my church community, engaged in anti-human trafficking causes, and have participated in mentorship for at-risk youth in my community.
