About My Approach

Are you feeling depressed, anxious, scattered? Does is seem like your relationships and life are falling apart? Please know that you are not alone.  Here is a quick trivia question…in what year did Time Magazine do a cover on stress declaring that it is the most stressful time in history? (…some Jeopardy music…).

If you guessed 1983 you are right.  What? 1983? (…chuckling aren’t you?…see, we’re off to a good start already!!…)  Yep, take a look by clicking here. Now, let’s think for a moment.

That was BEFORE the Internet, cell phones, email, texting, Facebook, Twitter, Linked-in, You Tube, X-box, PS-3, Ebay, Amazon, cable TV, reality TV, satellite TV, 5-zillion channels on TV, and the economic collapse of 2008!  WOW ! …Think about the stress today!  As a practicing counselor here in Wilmington, NC, I know the unique stresses you are under and I can help.

The first thing to realize is that it is a difficult and stressful time and you are not alone trying to stay above water!

So, how can I help? I provide a safe space to talk about issues in your life, your relationships, and help put things into perspective. Together we explore ways to make you and your relationships better so that you can experience life in a more fulfilling, happier, less-stressful way.

Let me use a beach analogy since we live in Wilmington: let’s learn to be able to surf on top of life’s waves rather than getting churned beneath them.

Now, for those who want to hear the big theoretical words, I practice and teach

  • Narrative Therapy
  • Solution Focused Therapy
  • Solution Oriented Therapy
  • Cognitive Therapy
  • Behavioral Therapy

  • Mindfulness
  • Structural Family Therapy

See what 15 years of teaching and practice can do for you? All of these approaches are based in evidence of effectiveness and are considered evidence based practices.

My primary focus is on assisting my clients to achieve a better sense of self and to lead lives that they wish to lead and find fulfilling. We do this together regardless of the problem.
