Do What Works

Being an effective therapist is my profession and how I put food on the table for my family, so I take this job seriously. But I’m also a parent and I know full-well how frightening it can be to ask for help and to then place the wellbeing of your child and family in the hands of someone you’re still getting to known. A written description of what you can expect from me is a poor substitute for what you’ll learn by the real-world experience of working together, but since you’re here on my web site trying to figure out whether or not I’m the right fit for you, your child, or your family, here are a few things to consider:

Unconventional Icon

The motto of my practice is “Do what works”, which sometimes requires doing things that are unconventional. If you’re looking for a therapist who will continuously ask “how does that make you feel?” or talk endlessly about the virtues of sensitivity, or improving self-esteem, then I will help you find a therapist who better fits what you’re looking for.

Customized Icon

Doing what works means that every person who walks into my office will get some of the same things because everyone who walks into my office needs some of the same things. And though this is a true statement, your care will be personalized and your treatment based on who you are, what you need, and what works for you.

Humor Icon

If we work together, we will deal with issues that are no joking matter, but humor is very much a part of my approach. Finding humor, especially during the darkest times, is tremendously healing. My sense of humor, such as it is, reflects my style as a therapist.

Education Icon

I make it a priority to stay current on research and the technical aspects of this profession, but the help you’ll get from me will not be something I read in some book and then repeated because it sounded good.

Homework Icon

You will be asked to work between sessions. Some kinds of therapy lend themselves well to worksheets and assignments that help you put into action all that we discuss in session and in other instances, your “homework” will be less structured that a worksheet, but not any less important.

Routine Icon

My sessions tend to follow a certain pattern that will become apparent within a session or two. Having a routine in sessions serves a very simple but useful purpose: A routine enables us to be more efficient and productive with your time and money.

Sitting for hours after hours is easily the least pleasant part of my job and for people below a certain age, it’s also the least effective way to do therapy. Unfortunately, no matter how old you are, there will be times when we have to get down to business and that business will require us to sit in chairs. Outside of those times when sitting is necessary, I will be looking for opportunities for us to move as much as possible.

Do What Works.

Why I’m Right For You

Giving the standard answer about being passionate for this work and about being able to connect with kids really isn’t much of an answer. And yet, you’ll read it on the web site of just about any therapist specializing in work with adolescents, young adults and families.

These abilities just get you in the door and as far as therapist attributes go, they aren’t much to brag about. Saying “I’m a passionate therapist who really connects with kids” is like a professional basketball player making a big deal over the fact he knows how to dribble.

With that in mind, part of why I might be a good match for your family is that I’m usually able to build strong relationships with my clients, particularly those who have been resistant to the idea of therapy or who have struggled in therapy previously.

My personally challenging experiences as a teen extended into my young adulthood and this background can function as a point of connection. All the lessons that you as a parent are no doubt hoping for your child to avoid having to learn the hard way, I learned the hard way.

Though rarely pretty, these personal experiences are backed by 25 years of education, training and real-world experience, all of which we will put to use on behalf of your child and family. I got second chances at redemption and with the right support was able to turn away from the drugs, crime, anger and pain.

I look forward to seeing if I can be of help to you and your family.
