What does success look like in therapy? How will a client know that they are making progress?

Success in therapy is dependent upon how one responds to adversity. A client will know they are making progress when they are able to implement new behaviors when facing tribulation.

If you could pick one movie or book that influenced your approach to therapy, what would it be and why?

Mr. Nobody because the film does a great job of illustrating the significance of choice. The choices we make no matter how significant or insignificant they may appear to be shape who we are and where we are going.

In what ways does your personality influence your approach to therapy?

I would consider myself an existentialist at heart. I cannot just work a 9 to 5, my life needs to have meaning and purpose. Helping others find theirs adds meaning to my life.

Work History

Over the years I have worked in a variety of settings such as in home therapy with children, in-patient and out-patient treatment with adults struggling with substance abuse, and private practice. I provide individual therapy for a number of common issues such as anxiety, depression, existential crisis, grief and loss, issues with motivation, and self worth.
