If it has to do with feeling stuck or discontent, I can help.
So let’s start here (check all that apply): I’m here because
(a)My partner is driving me crazy and I’m not sure I want to stay
(b)I’m completely overwhelmed with this thing called life
(c)I bend over backwards to make people happy and then I resent them for it
(d)Everyone around me seems happy but I’m not
(e)I have amazing ideas but can’t seem get anywhere with them
Good news, if any or all of the above apply you’re in the right spot.
I've been helping people live better lives since 1996; over 20 years. I imagine I've got somewhere around 20,000 hours of working directly with clients although I've never stopped to actually count it all up.
I'm New Jersey born but Texas raised. I completed my Master's degree in 1996 in Marriage and Family Therapy with additional graduate hours to allow for licensure as a Professional Counselor in the state of Texas,
I love talking and connecting with clients about things that matter. I work in a relaxed, informal manner that is collaborative in nature. I pull from a variety of theoretical orientations in order to meet individual clients' unique needs; this is not a one-size-fits-all shop. We'll figure out what works best for you together.
I have worked with clients from many different backgrounds and identities. As an able-bodied, cis-gender, white, middle class man, I am aware that I exist in a culture that privileges my experience over many who are “othered” by society. I work hard at being an ally to all who enter my door, whatever their background. Everyone deserves to be heard and seen for who they are.
When I'm not seeing clients I'm often on two wheels, wearing hiking boots, reading or traveling.
