Hello, I’m Tim. Do you ever feel that tasks of modern life leave you with limited space and energy to focus on your emotional and mental well-being? When people are maxed out emotionally, they sometimes notice a change in their behaviors and relationships. Life demands can lead to imbalances that might manifest as discord with your significant other or family members, feeling the general sensation of stress or fatigue, or not feeling motivated to engage in mood-regenerating practices. If these experiences resonate with you, I would welcome the opportunity to collaboratively explore the underlying causes, and work toward rebuilding emotional equilibrium. Sometimes people will view therapy and self-care as too much of a time commitment during their already busy schedules; however, I take the stance that it is an essential part of any self-maintenance plan. A practice of working toward better self-understanding and self-compassion is always a return on the investment of time.

The desire to be a parent runs deep through your soul, and is unlike any other feeling. As a compassionate and empathetic therapist, I understand the complex emotional and psychological impact that infertility and miscarriage can have. For women or men starting their journey to conception or who are having difficulty conceiving, I can: • Support you in maintaining hope, peace and positivity while navigating uncertainty and help you build resiliency as you work through obstacles. • Help you to recognize and access your deeper intuition, so you are better equipped to honor your body, spirit and mind with the highest intention throughout your journey. • Work with you on increasing clarity and purpose around your fertility journey, checking in with your emotional, psychological and spiritual alignment as you move forward on your unique path. • Utilize a holistic approach to address integrative lifestyle strategies that may be beneficial to your fertility path, including nutrition, meditation and sleep quality. • Assist you in addressing relationship difficulties that can arise out of the stress of fertility challenges, and help you develop strategies to increase intimacy with your partner and foster healthy communication. For women and men considering or undergoing assisted reproductive treatments: • Modern medical technologies can sometimes cause us to feel disconnected from the natural processes of conception and pregnancy. We can work together to source your inner compass to establish personal guidelines and boundaries around assisted reproduction treatments so that you can approach these decisions and situations from a place of empowerment and sovereignty. • I can help you learn effective coping strategies for stress, depression and anxiety that may arise from diagnosis and treatment. • We can work together on developing a toolbox for knowing how to respond to inquiries and comments from family and friends and navigating workplace considerations. • In between treatments, we can focus on building resiliency while preparing emotionally and psychologically for your next round of treatment. For women and men who have experienced reproductive loss: • The devastating and seemingly invisible pain of losing a pregnancy is unique in that it involves not only the loss of your baby, but also involves the loss of the future - and there is no accepted way to mark that loss. Sometimes it seems that friends and family members expect the person to move on quickly. Partners often grieve differently - and for men, the trauma of miscarriage is often overlooked. Also, some women may suffer guilt or shame associated with the loss that doesn't tend to occur with other types of grieving. • There is no universal template for grief. Together, we will address your unique needs as you work through your grieving process.

I graduated with my masters degree in social work (MSW) in 2008, earned by clinical licensure (LCSW) in 2010, and doctorate in clinical social work (DSW) in 2016. I believe that every client deserves a treatment modality created to meet their own particular needs and symptoms, and my role, as a competent practitioner, is to craft that treatment approach that maximizes the client's strengths, reduces/alleviates their current symptoms, and offers new patterns of engaging with their life and the world around them that prevent relapse into old and destructive patterns of behavior.
