Dissatisfied with your life? Losing too much time to the internet? Are anxiety and stress taking their toll on you? Are you risking your job or failing out of school because you can't stop gaming or looking at porn? About to lose your relationship because of your out-of-control sexual behaviors? Are the symptoms of ADHD pushing you over the edge? The list goes on, but the bottom line is this: If you feel that your life and/or behaviors are out of your control, then you've got a problem. I can help.
I have a unique practice in many ways. For example:
Guys Only: I work only with men (college age and beyond).
Online Sessions Available: I am certified as a Distance Credentialed Counselor (DCC), and offer video sessions as part of my practice. Online sessions (formally called “telemental health”) can be as effective as in-person sessions, and, while it may sound ironic to some, many have even found healing from compulsive Internet-related behaviors (i.e. porn addiction, gaming addiction, etc) through online counseling and coaching. This is particularly true for the Millennial generation, Gen-Z’ers, or those who travel...
Unconventional Background - My diverse and unique background allows me to see the world through many different lenses. My style is direct, understanding, open-minded, and non-judgmental, and I can help you learn to be mindful, centered, and live an authentic life.
Some of the core areas I work on:
Addiction Recovery: I work with both "older" problems (substance abuse, sex addiction, pathological gambling) and "newer" problems (Internet addiction, porn addiction, gaming, social media, etc.). In dealing with these struggles, there is no one-size-fits-all solution; let me help figure out what model works for you.
Stress, Anxiety, Mood, etc - There is too much stress, anxiety, depression, etc in today's world. There are many reasons for these problems, ranging from biology to a life-out-of-balance (Koyaanisqatsi). Fortunately, there are many solutions - mindfulness being a key!
Career & Academic Struggles - Not sure where you are going with your life? Meaningful work is an important part of happiness. Maybe its a full-blown career, maybe just a daily job that suits your lifestyle. Maybe it involves more schooling, maybe not. I can help you figure these, and similar, things out.
Life Coaching: Coaching has many similarities with Counseling, but it can be a more streamlined and direct process. Plus, you don't have to lay on your back on the sofa and "tell me about your mother". (RIP Sigmund Freud). :-)
