Wonder why you’re obsessing all the time, even though you work hard to maintain mental focus? Or do you promise yourself you’ll stop compulsive “habits,” but can’t seem to follow through?
Are you at a turning point in your life, looking for new direction and purpose?
Was your birth family fragmented and broken? You now owe it to yourself to take agency over your own life.
At some point, a man may recognize areas in his life where he is not meeting his potential and then he may seek counseling as a necessary practice to reclaim the person that he knows himself to be.
We grow up feeling in control, capable, and convinced that if we live a good life we won’t be touched by harm. Then the unexpected occurs. In the midst of it all, one can easily be overwhelmed by fear, helplessness, and loss of control.
To begin therapy is to stand at the threshold of change. It takes courage to examine the personal and emotional obstacles which you may now be facing, such as chronic anxiety and stress, career challenges, relationship issues or life transitions. Crossing that threshold is an expression of curiosity; a personal “Yes!” to exploring and enhancing your own growth. My counseling practice is committed to make that process as comfortable as possible. Contact me by phone or email if you have questions or would like to set up an appointment.
I am frequently asked why I chose doors as imagery for my therapy practice. It is a fact that doors are featured prominently in western culture in both practical and symbolic ways. As strictly useful items, they keep the weather and the unwanted out. They provide privacy and security. As symbols they are much more ambiguous: they offer newness, possibility and freedom; but they also shut out, prevent contact, and limit one’s vision and experience.
For me, the multi-colored doors, both closed and opened, displayed throughout this website are sacred portals which delineate an opening into the consciousness. This “sacred door” is anything but ambiguous; it is a clear symbol that your door represents an opportunity, it is a threshold to discovery and passage way to possibilities for emotional wellness. And only YOU have the key to open it.
