You've bravely decided that you're no longer going to suffer in silence. I'm here to help you take that first step toward healing.
Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in Asheville, NC
Life is hard enough under normal circumstances, but especially so when we feel less than capable of tackling even some of life's most basic tasks. Seeking out help is the first step to addressing these problems, and I'm here to help you discover and process the things that are holding you back from enjoying life's simplest pleasures, something most people take for granted.
Your mind races, you struggle with stillness, and you have trouble sleeping at night. Anxiety is a uniquely terrible form of suffering, and one that needs to be confronted and talked about with someone who knows what its like to experience these struggles.
Sometimes you feel misunderstood, abused, or neglected in your romantic, personal, or familial relationships, which can lead to divorce or separation or the severance of friendship and family ties. I help people like you navigate these problems so that boundaries are respected and unhelpful relationship patterns are not repeated.
I have extensive post-graduate training in psychodynamic and modern psychoanalytic psychotherapy, most recently from the Philadelphia Psychoanalytic Institute and the Colorado Center for Modern Psychoanalysis.
Contemplative psychotherapy, combined with modern psychoanalytic/psychodynamic therapy, are at the heart of my clinical training and expertise.
In addition to my graduate training in clinical mental health counseling, I have extensive post-graduate training and experience in treating addiction problems of all kinds, including alcohol, drugs, gambling, pornography, and online addiction.
