“If there is meaning in life at all, then there must be meaning in suffering.” Viktor Frankl

Sometimes life can leave us feeling overwhelmed. Mental illness, trauma, loneliness, disappointment, loss, and grief can leave us feeling like life has no purpose. I believe that through a combination of therapeutic techniques and genuine support hope can be found to endure any situation. While I am confident in using evidence-based practices such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, I am also aware that not everyone responds the same to each therapeutic intervention and therefore maintain a flexible view on my preferred method. I believe there is no universal form of therapy that is guaranteed to help everyone, so my goal is to help you find what works best for you. Whether you need someone to vent to or need a specific intervention my job is to do whatever is within my ability and training to help relieve your stress and help you grow as a person. Whether you are struggling to find meaning in your life or overcome by what each day brings my desire is to help lighten your burdens. I hope that no matter your situation I can help you to find peace of mind and to work alongside you as you discover how to make beneficial changes in your circumstances or mindset. By searching for a counselor, you’re taking a step towards change and recovery. With my clients I provide a supportive environment to work through the current struggles you are facing. Whether you are deeply suffering or purely in need of making some adjustments I can provide a setting that will help promote mental clarity.

Meet Jason

No two people seek counseling for the exact same reason; your relationships, your story, and your perspectives impact the challenges in your life just as they shape its wonderful aspects.  As your counselor, it’s important to me to establish a safe and non-judgmental environment where you can be unburdened and open to wellness.  Whether you are seeking clarity, tranquility, agency, or affirmation, I’m honored to help guide your healing and growing work.  

What can you expect from me as your counselor?  When we talk, I will follow your lead, asking questions and making observations with the goal of challenging or enlightening your reoccurring or unacknowledged thoughts.  My counseling style has been shaped greatly by my decades as a member of the LGBTQ+ community, and at various moments I have felt the burden of anxiety, self-doubt, marginalization, and oppression in my life.  Helping others address corrosive feelings and restore balance and wellness as individuals, life partners, and essential members of a greater community is central to fulfillment in my professional practice.  Let us do this work together so you can expand your understanding of yourself. Let us do this work together so you can expand your compassion for yourself. Let us do this work together so you can wholly inhabit yourself.

Meet Aby

You feel anxious, overwhelmed or like you have lost yourself. You have self-doubts and sometimes lack self-confidence. All these feelings are normal and can get in the way of our day-to-day life. You might feel like you don’t have anyone who you can talk to about these things or maybe you aren’t even sure where to start.

Often, we just need someone who can listen to our issues with an open mind and not feel like we are being judged. Therapy can be intimidating but often the opportunity to be heard and understood can itself be healing. With some goals and a desire to grow and change you can make progress and have the life you want.

You have many choices when it comes to a therapist. I value diversity in life. I strive to create a comfortable and non-judgmental space for you. I can help make the process relatively easy and hopefully enjoyable. I am here to help you explore why these feelings and issues are happening and look for healthy, positive ways to make changes in your life. We will work on self-awareness and discovery to allow you to be the best, most authentic version of yourself. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you!

Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life? – Mary Oliver 

What do you want from your one wild and precious life? Maybe you have found yourself feeling overwhelmed by feelings of self-doubt. Maybe the pandemic has left you feeling anxious and alone. Maybe your relationship is bringing you pain instead of joy. Maybe you have a sense that your life could be better than it is right now, but you don’t know how to make it happen. No matter what you are going through, you should know that you are not alone! We all struggle to make the best of our one wild and precious life, and therapy can help.

 As a therapist intern, I will be your companion on your journey of self-exploration. I will hold space for you to be exactly who you are and support you as you grow into the person you want to be. I believe that, at our core, all people have an inner healing intelligence. Together we will create a safe container for you to access your inner wisdom and remove barriers to self-growth. 

 I value diversity in my personal and professional life. I enjoy working with people from different cultures, religions, gender expressions, and sexual orientations. I practice LGBTQ+ affirmative therapy, and no topic is off the table. While I love helping people with all types of life challenges, I have additional training and experience with trauma. As part of my trauma-informed approach, I have completed phase one training in Brainspotting, a neurobiological approach to healing trauma. I also hold a master’s degree in Organizational Development and Leadership, so I am passionate about working with people looking to cultivate fulfillment in their professional lives.
