Employee Assistance Counseling
My goal is to help you learn how to manage your own mental health issues and to become a lifelong custodian of your own happiness and wellness. I want you to get back to the life you deserve as quickly and as painlessly as possible. I use a strengths-based, solution-focused therapeutic orientation that can be brief and deals with the issues facing you at the moment. Though I work clients of varying backgrounds, my specialty is working with adult and adolescent male clients dealing with issues related to depression, substance abuse, or anger management.
I am comfortable working within the legal system and I am willing to see clients that are involved in some form of court-ordered services or as a part of a divorce/custody proceedings.
As a practicing pagan, I am comfortable working with people with Earth-based religions or non-mainstream spirituality. I believe spirituality and psychotherapy can work together if that is what you prefer. Feel free to discuss this with me further if it is something that interests you.
