Have you been affected by adverse life experiences in childhood or as an adult? Do you feel stuck and lack motivation? Are you ready to heal and transform? I believe that everyone's light is meant to shine no matter how dark times are or have been. I'm passionate about empowering others to overcome difficulties and thrive. As a skilled counselor, the practice of active listening, the art of effective communication and collaborative planning help identify deeply rooted emotional issues. I've witnessed person-centered, cognitive behavioral and solution-focused approaches foster trust, awareness, and clarity that leads to growth and mental balance. Living in a variety of areas throughout the country from the East to the West Coast. Allowed me to have life experiences combined with education that cultivates a safe and brave environment that is richly diverse and culturally competent. Anxiety, depression, addiction, hang-ups or habits can all be managed or eliminated with healthy coping skills, education and varying tools.

I am a licensed professional counselor looking to help others find their full potential by using an eclectic approach to therapy. If you find yourself aimlessly scrolling through profiles in search of an authentic therapist, I may be a great fit for you. I find that being authentic with clients is what helps them build a foundation and feel safe enough to share their issues and concerns. I practice from a person-centered approach while mixing in elements of CBT to help clients guide their treatment while also holding them accountable. I specialize in the use of art therapy to help clients communicate and process various topics that may be difficult to speak about. Whether you're dealing with anxiety, depression, issues with substance abuse, or relationship issues, I'm here to help. Seeking treatment can be difficult, but if you've already taken this first step in searching for a therapist then you've likely already identified that this is something you can benefit from with the right help. If you've been reading this far and I seem like a good fit for you, let's work together!

You don’t recognize the face staring back from the mirror. “What’s happened to me?!?” Years of pent-up worry are taking a toll – and the evidence is there. The constant questioning and doubting… “Who am I kidding? My time has passed to live the life I want.” Therapy can help you weed through the dark moments and gain objectivity so that you are no longer bogged down by the pain of these moments. A lifetime of experiences led you to this moment. Some experiences have been positive – they’ve taught you how to savor joyful times and kept you in the moment, experiencing all this life has to offer. Other experiences have been tougher – so distressing that reminders of these moments make you feel like you’re right there, experiencing that pain all over. Sometimes, you’re anxious, depressed, and out of sorts for seemingly no reason. These moments have collected over time and made an intricate tapestry that is your life. Now you’re ready for change and to retake control of your life. I will provide a safe and comforting space for you to explore your values, desires, and passions. Become unapologetically you and free to pursue your happiness. Through the use of cutting-edge trauma therapies, we will find the road blocks and navigate through them together. We will cultivate a life worth living and help you get back to what really matters in life.

I also have a particular interest in working with individuals who have endured emotional distress due to the nature of their work. Do you need help in letting go, coping with trouble from the past, or managing a current situation that is emotionally challenging or stressful? Need support in identifying the problem to gain a better understanding? Have you thought about seeking guidance to develop solutions that line up with your future goals and vision to fulfill your purpose? Together, we can work on developing solutions to uncover and identify long-standing behavior patterns and beliefs that may be holding you back. At times, circumstances and events can change the direction of one’s life resulting in difficult situations.

I believe that if every human being had someone to provide them with unconditional positive regard, especially during the formative years of childhood, our world would be a safer place. Unfortunately, many of us don’t even make it through childhood without wounds from emotionally painful experiences. Sometimes the consequences of these experiences are long-lasting and can impact our well-being, relationships, and work. Fortunately, therapy can help. I have worked in community and university settings for the past 7 years, and I have experience treating a variety of mental health struggles such as anxiety, depression, sexual abuse, trauma, marriage/family issues, and communication challenges.

Hello, and welcome! My introduction to the counseling field began while working within therapeutic group homes that served children through adults experiencing mental health struggles. This experience, both enriching and meaningful, inspired my interest in pursuing counseling. I was deeply moved by the varying degrees of challenging life experiences that we are all tasked with navigating and the ways we attempt to cope, gain insight from, and hopefully transform our adverse circumstances. I received my Master of Social Work degree from Portland State University and since, I’ve had the opportunity to assist a diverse range of clients in both inpatient treatment and outpatient therapy settings, and more recently, at a college counseling clinic at the University of Montana. Within these programs, I’ve helped clients address anxiety, depression, grief and loss, trauma, academic challenges, relationships, identity changes, sexuality, and general life stressors. I am grateful that I can work to help individuals navigate the evolving nature of their lives by providing unconditional positive regard, encouragement, and supportive guidance.

Hi! People of all walks of life often go through tough times ... and I am here to help. Since 1991, I have worked with individuals across outpatient and inpatient settings, in homes and schools, and now through telehealth. I have assisted people with a variety of challenges--whether related to depression, anxiety and stress, trauma, behavioral control, self-esteem, substance use, life transition, and other issues. I believe in "possibilities thinking", goal setting, active strategizing, and frequent accounting of progress. As a long-term counselor and college psychology professor, I am well acquainted with many therapeutic approaches; however, I am somewhat partial to cognitive-behavioral therapy, relaxation and mindfulness, and solution-focused treatment. I am also formally EMDR-trained and DBT-Certified. There are many therapy options and providers--whomever you select, I wish you the best. Remember--it’s your life, your journey … make the most of it! Sincerely, Rick NOTE: At the current time, my availability will typically be from 5 pm - 8/9 pm during most weekdays (M-T-W-TH-F) and 8 am - 2/3 pm on most weekends. Daytime weekday availability is limited due to my full-time behavioral-health position. NOTE: At this time, I am accepting only adults (age 18 and up) of any age. NOTE: I am offering only 1:1 (no family or couples) therapy. NOTE: I do not engage in any court-ordered treatment. NOTE: I am interested in conducting therapy, not doing work-mandated, IEP, or other one-time (e.g., Drug & Alcohol or Mental Competency) evaluations. NOTE: Though an experienced Licensed Professional Counselor, I am not a Licensed Psychologist or a Psychiatrist. As such, I cannot conduct psychological testing or prescribe medications.

Then I help you to develop skills and solutions tailored for you to help you move forward toward that healthier life. It's a collaborative approach. You and I work together through this process. From this perspective, listening is the most-important part of communication.

Hello! I appreciate that you’re taking this step toward finding a therapist you feel will be a good fit for you. I am a licensed clinical social worker with 13 years of experience. For most of this time I have worked with people around issues of depression, anxiety, PTSD, grief, and relationship/family issues. I am also passionate about working with LGBTQ folks around issues of coming out and self-acceptance. I know that the decision to look for a therapist isn’t always an easy one but, by doing so, you are taking an important first step toward creating change for yourself! I take a down-to-earth, supportive, conversational approach to therapy. I engage in discussion and don’t hesitate to share my own life experience when appropriate. I find that a more personal approach helps strengthen the relationship between me and the people I meet with which, in turn, will help you feel more comfortable being open in sessions. I take this approach because therapy is most successful when a person feels like their therapist understands them and when there is some level of connection. I focus on ensuring you will feel both seen and heard starting with our first session. You will be approached by me with curiosity, interest, and care at all times. At the start of your sessions with me I will ask how you’d like to start that day’s conversation and, if you’re not sure, will support you in discovering what might be important for you to talk about in the moment. I invite you to schedule a first session to see if I am a good fit for what you’re looking for in therapy!
