We all experience stress, depression, anxiety, anger, and other difficulties at times, and we often get over it without needing extra support. However, it is important to recognize when you should look to others for a helping hand.
I am trained and experienced to provide services for a number of different problems that people face as individuals or in their relationships. I often work with people who struggle with anxiety, depression, chronic pain, addiction, career difficulties, legal issues, unhealthy habits, etc.

My Specialties Include:
Substance Abuse & Addiction
Addiction to alcohol, drugs, gambling, shopping, eating, etc is a painful battle; and recovery can seem out of reach when you're stuck in the cycle of destruction. Recovery is possible and I offer guidance and assistance while you navigate the path to healing. There are bound to be bumps in the road and there are many options for recovery. Change is possible with the right treatment and support. I can help you on your journey of recovery while you navigate a variety of emotions including shame, guilt, resentment, anger, fear, boredom, and loneliness.
Chronic Pain and Illness
Living with chronic pain and illness can be emotionally draining. Feeling alone and hopeless can take its toll; and disrupt and damage your life whether it's your relationships, employment, or "free" time. Managing chronic pain can feel like a full-time job and lead to isolation, depression, anxiety, feeling empty, lonely, or guilty. It can even lead to thoughts of death, suicide, or suicide attempts. You don't have to suffer alone! I personally understand what you are going through and offer comfort and assistance with re-evaluating your life and goals. I can help you find new things that brings you joy and purpose.
One of the biggest barriers to men seeking therapy are stigma and fear. In our culture, we expect men to “be strong” or “masculine” or “to suck it up”. In reality, it takes a lot of courage and strength for men to admit that they’re having a problem, and to seek out help for it. As a counselor, I understand the various issues that you face. I have successfully provided therapy to many men in your position and I want you to know that you are not alone. I have the knowledge and resources needed to increase your life satisfaction and effectively work through challenges and obstacles.
