I welcome you to my offices and invite you to take the time to read this brief introduction to the services I provide.
I offer psychotherapy and counseling services to individuals and couples in a comfortable, safe, and private setting.
I specialize in treating trauma, anxiety, and stress, using a short-term, outcome-focused style of working. Since it is my belief that most issues therapists are asked to address are traumagenic, I also address anger, grief, relationship issues, and substance abuse.
My primary method of working is Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) with significant elements of Emotional Transformation Therapy (ETT), Rational Emotive Therapy (RET), and other Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) methods.
These methods are variously used in individual and couples counseling. They are also adapted to chemical dependency, career, and rehabilitation counseling, according to your individual needs in removing obstacles and reaching your goals.
I treat the affective elements of physical disorders for more effective pain management that has proven helpful to many patients. I receive referrals from the Flatwater Foundation and from physicians for treating the affective component of cancer diagnosis and treatment.
Additionally, I offer consulting and case management services for clients with complex cases involving the coordination of two or more service providers.
For those who wish to learn clinical applications of NLP, I offer training for individuals and small groups.
With experience as a counselor and therapist since 1978, I try to employ a healthy measure of good sense and a practical approach to most issues. My overarching objective is to assist you in living your life to the fullest, and I will use any and all tools best suited to that task.
