Concerns I Treat:
Negativity and energy balance
who I work with:
I help men, fathers and helping professionals who are stressed or overwhelmed to find meaning and balance in your work, life, and relationships again. Life can be hard, and managing the many expectations you have placed on you can at times lead to feeling alone or isolated. You may feel numb or withdrawn from your life. Anxious or depressed. Burned out. You may be led to addiction, the urge to run away from your life and those around you, or even flooded with thoughts that you don’t voice out loud.
Navigating your way through these tough feelings impacts the way you view the world and how you view what is important to you. You may find yourself feeling sad, fearful, or just really exhausted. You may even have become accustomed to these feelings, and have put them aside to help others. You may create an entirely separate person you share with others to avoid the persistent feelings. You might feel like no one in the world can understand you. You may even begin to question who you are. I can help.
how therapy can help you:
I can help you discover a better understanding of your feelings and how to manage them. Perhaps learning to find joy in the little things in your everyday life can change how you view yourself. Or maybe it’s identifying what activities and relationships fill you up rather than drain you. I will work with you to make the changes in your life that will enhance your wellbeing and self-identity. Help you discover the source of your beliefs that guide you. We can work together to ensure your values, beliefs and mental health goals become aligned with your daily reality.
If you are drawn to nature, being outside or the natural world around you, we can include nature-based ecotherapy into our sessions together to help connect you with all of life.
I’ve lived in a lot of places and seen a lot of things. In my 30’s I settled into a remote lifestyle following the work of my grandparents in Kentucky, working with animals and raising food on a biodynamic farm. I spent everyday, rain or shine, wind or calm, hot or cold, milking goats, working yaks and cattle, feeding hogs, rotating birds and planting seeds. Or checking on worm piles, digging dirt, mud and compost. It was the best of times and it certainly was the most challenging of times. In the end I wouldn’t trade it and all the lessons I learned for anything in the world.
Currently, I am pursuing my Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Adams State University. I believe in a lifelong commitment to the pursuit of competency and expertise in traditional theoretical and specialized techniques. I am passionate about using a whole person/humanistic-centered approach in counseling, balanced with cultural inclusivity.
