Life is hard. Despite all of its challenges, I have had an incredibly rich and abundant life.
The lessons I’ve learned have added to the meaning and depth of my experiences.
I hope my life experiences can help me to be a source of strength and guidance for my clients.
Areas of Focus: The relationship between therapist and client is one of the keys to successful counseling. It is essential to find a counselor whose areas of focus match your needs.
Individuals - Life throws unexpected challenges at all of us in ways that are hard to prepare to handle. We feel overwhelmed, and without options for the happy, healthy life we hope to live. Changes and life transitions can be especially hard. Finding tools to cope provides hope for the future.
Men - Men face unique life challenges about their meaning and purpose as well as their roles as husbands and fathers. These are not always dealt with comfortably in a traditional counseling setting. By offering experiential counseling opportunities, we dig deeper into what it means to be a man.
Parents - Whether new parents or empty nesters, parenting brings many challenges as we try to do the best for our children. Parenting stress impacts us in a variety of ways, including our marriages, jobs, and friendships. We will find solutions to parenting difficulties that free you to engage in the rest of your life.
Couples - The relationship with our spouse or significant other is the most important connection we have. When problems arise in this relationship, we feel adrift, angry, and scared. By making the relationship the “client,” we work together to find weaknesses and the best to strengthen the relationship.
Groups - There is benefit to coming together with others who have similar life challenges to learn from one another, share in the process of growing, and finding solutions with support and accountability. Groups are created when a sufficient number of clients, with similar needs, are identified.
Philosophy: A lot can be learned about our current difficulties by better understanding our past. I believe the key to an abundant life is to find meaning and purpose in the things that we experience every day. Both the good and the bad. Using psychotherapy, behavioral techniques, and experiential opportunities, we build solutions to help you live a more abundant life.
Personal: I enjoy the abundant life that Colorado offers both in the mountains and around Denver. You can find me enjoying the outdoors skiing, hiking, camping, or cycling with my family. I also love to travel and experience different ways people live both within the U.S. and throughout the world. I’ve been to all 50 states and 4 continents. I find energy in experiencing life in a variety of ways - I look forward to learning more about what you enjoy!
