I believe there is no "one size fits all" when it comes to therapy. Using a humanistic foundation, we can adjust from a collaborative narrative style to a directive style of therapy depending on your personality and goals. It's my belief that you should feel welcome, accepted, and comfortable when you walk into a therapy session. It is my goal to bring that humanity and warmth to each session. Whether you're an individual, couple, or family, we all come to crossroads, speed bumps, blockades, or even unwavering ambivalence.
Men can often find it difficult to bring about change in their lives, choosing to just bear the burden and carry on. My men’s counseling style comes from Jordan B. Peterson, Jocko Willink, and other leaders of men. We can walk together as we uncover your true potential as a man in today’s world. Individuals, couples, and families are all welcome to come out and experience the home-like atmosphere of our therapy offices. I want to help you find your potential sitting right below the surface of your life.
