Professional statement

Eben guides clients through a process of healing, self discovery, and personal growth. Through his strength-based, person-centered approach to therapy, clients gain skills they can use to tap into their unique assets and individuality to overcome anxiety, depression, and make long-lasting change.

Much can be resolved in therapy through the support of an empathic listener. Eben connects with clients on an intuitive level and listens to their stories with patience, genuine care, and good humor. He emphasizes building a strong therapeutic alliance and working with clients at their own pace to develop goals, strategies, and coping skills tailored to meet their needs.

He will walk with clients down the path toward understanding what they want out of life, and be in their corner cheering them on as they get closer to reaching their goals.


Message to clients

Everyone has the potential to make life-affirming changes. However, many of us move through our lives relying on unhealthy coping mechanisms. Learning to pause and reframe our responses to difficult situations can create better outcomes, deeper relationships, and more life satisfaction.

You bring a unique sense of self determination into the therapeutic space. Using a strengths-based perspective, we’ll build upon the gifts you already possess to bust through the patterns of thinking and behavior keeping you from accomplishing your goals. We’ll collaborate to find new ways of coping, identify roadblocks, and find the path forward that’s right for you.

While this process goes at your own pace, I’ll sometimes push you to move beyond your comfort zone so you can gain new insight into yourself, your history, and the root cause of your challenges. Sharing your private thoughts and feelings can feel vulnerable. So first, I emphasize cultivating a trusting, respectful therapeutic relationship where you feel fully comfortable opening up about your inner life. My goal is to make therapy a positive experience where you’re empowered to make lasting changes.
