Person Focused Counseling
A person-focused approach to counseling is one that takes into account not just the physical symptoms someone is experiencing, but also the emotions and life experiences of the individual in question. This approach puts the focus on you as a whole, taking into account your individual circumstances and needs. It allows for a more in-depth understanding of your motivations, thoughts, and behaviors, which can lead to more effective treatment.
As your therapist, I will seek to understand your story and how it relates to the current situation, and this can be a very empowering process for those seeking counseling. By taking the time to truly understand your unique experiences, I can develop a more effective plan of action that will help you reach your goals.
As your therapist, I will keep you accountable as I help guide you towards your therapeutic goals.

Therapy for Artists and Creatives
Ever since I was a small child, I had the opportunity to lean into my creative side. As an artist and a creative, I understand the unique challenges when it comes to managing mental health. The creative process can be intensely personal, and the pressure to create can be overwhelming. As a result, many artists and creatives can benefit from therapy as a way to cope with the psychological strain of their work.
Whether you are struggling to find motivation or are feeling overwhelmed by the demands of the creative process, therapy can help you work through these issues and find new ways to move forward. As your therapist, I can provide a safe space to explore your thoughts and feelings, helping you to gain clarity and self-awareness. I can also help provide insights and strategies to help you manage the unique stressors that come with the creative process.
Therapy can be a powerful tool for helping you identify and express yourself, develop resilience, and cultivate a healthier relationship with your creative work. Whether you are an emerging artist or a seasoned professional, therapy can help you find new paths for growth and fulfillment.

Safe and Judgment Free Space
Therapy is an important part of our overall care, but it is often underutilized by us men. This is due to a combination of factors, from social stigma to financial barriers. However, therapy can be a powerful tool in helping men to process their thoughts and emotions to help overcome their challenges.
In our sessions, I will create a safe and judgment free space where you can talk about difficult topics, have a chance to explore new perspectives, and develop new strategies for coping with stress. Together, we will build a foundation for mental wellness and develop skills for navigating life's ups and downs. So if you're a man looking for support, I am your therapist, so don't hesitate to seek out support. You deserve the chance to explore your feelings and work toward a happier, healthier life.
