Approach.

Client Centered, Collaborative, Strength-based, CBT   

I focus on mindful listening to help identify challenges people are facing and how to overcome them.  The world is constantly changing, and we are doing our best to adapt but we all need time to stop and take a breath.  Having time to process our emotions and assess where we want to be in life can help us feel more at peace. Together my clients and I will tailor evidence-based interventions to best meet their needs and help them have a more fulfilling and satisfying life.  I have seen clients find success as we work together to identify personal strengths and develop positive coping skills.  Therapy time is your time.

You don’t have to be positive all the time. It is perfectly okay to feel sad, angry, annoyed, frustrated, scared and anxious. Having feelings does not make you a negative person. It makes you human. -Lori Deschene

about.

Husband, Father, Car Guy, Snowboarder, Sports, Outdoors & Backyard BBQ Enthusiast.

In high school I was voted most likely to be a talk show host because of the unique questions I would ask people.  My friends enjoyed taking me on long drives because I could keep a (interesting) conversation going and recommended that I should become a therapist.  My response was heck no.  In college I took a class to help me find careers I would enjoy and what do you know being a therapist was at the top.

 

I love spending time with my wife and daughter.  I enjoy going for hikes, camping, visiting new places and finding peaceful locations where I can do self-reflection and mindfulness.
