Philosophy

My affiliation with Michigan State University allows me to remain on the cutting edge of evidence-based treatments. Still, I recognize the importance of being personable and listening to my clients rather than simply pursuing therapy in a cookbook-like fashion. I believe that everyone’s story is unique and that they deserve to be heard and listened to.

Personal Statement

I am proudest of people who enter therapy for the first time or after a long absence. Many people have told me that they have had negative experiences in the past and have waited a long time to return. I know that men, especially, have difficulty coming to therapy due to negative perceptions that still exist. The greatest compliment I ever received was, “I expected you to be a quack, but you talk like a regular person!” I avoid ‘psycho-babble’ and work best with people who are hungry for change in their lives.
