  • Welcome Message

    I specialize in an experiential therapeutic modality called Chairwork. Chairwork is a way of doing therapy that is engaging, energetic, and challenging. It requires us to speak directly to our problems and not just vent about them. I have found this way of working to be very powerful. Shifts and resolution can happen very quickly and, in some cases, just one session.

    I work best with individuals who are ready and willing to take responsibility for their lives and who can roll with my very direct approach (and pop culture references). I also work well with individuals who have found that more traditional forms of talk therapy just didn’t work for them or who are now feeling stuck in their current therapy work.

    If we agree to work together, I will be completely committed to you and your healing journey.
