Professional statement

You've always been known to have the answers to your problems. One way or another you find a way to get it done. That’s what your family and friends have always looked up to you for! Ambitious, brave, and hard working are words that best describe you.

You’ve taken pride in achieving your life goals on your own, but lately it’s been hard to ignore how difficult everything is. You carry on not asking for help thinking that you can get through this alone, but your family is feeling the distance and your friends know things aren’t right.

‍I know counseling is the last thing you thought you’d be considering, but you know you don’t like who you are right now and the way you learned to deal with things just isn’t working anymore. You’re here looking for answers and hoping to find relief. The good news is that counseling isn’t forever. I use a solution-focused approach in therapy that helps us use what strengths you already have to your advantage. From there, we will work on building and fine tuning other methods of dealing with what life throws at you. As a trauma informed therapist, I’ll also help you get to the root of your problem so that you can identify why you do the things you do, so that you can change the way you respond to your stressors.


Message to clients

Growing up I was taught, “hide your feelings, don’t show pain, be a man.” These were the lessons I thought I needed to teach my kids to become well-adjusted strong men, fathers, and sons. But after years of working in youth shelters, rehab treatment centers, and child protective services, I saw the true results of these teachings. Violence, addiction, and self-harm. I also saw the impact this had in the lives of many men today: absent fathers, broken homes, and failed relationships. I’ve reflected on this and I say to myself, “What else did we expect to happen when you hand a boy his own raw unfiltered emotions with no guidance or model on how to deal with them appropriately?” The cycles that we men keep repeating and passing down to the next generation of men, come from the behaviors and patterns that we were taught by those before us.

Now, my goal is to help as many men create and build healthier patterns of dealing with the crap our traumas left us with. Not only so we can be better teachers for the generation that succeeds us, but so that we as men can also enjoy the benefits of living as a whole human being. If this resonates with you, reach out and let’s chat.
