Finding the Best Psychologist for Therapy and Counseling

I am happy to say that I am not your “typical” therapist because I have found typical counseling and therapists to be relatively ineffective.  My belief that traditional therapy being inadequate and my genuine desire to help people heal and grow has led me to get extensive training over the past 25 years in many modern and highly effective therapeutic approaches.  Having improved and sharpened my skills, I commonly see quick, evident, and long-lasting improvement with the people I counsel.  I regularly get feedback that I am highly effective, warm, fun, and down to earth as a psychologist. As your therapist, I am committed to helping you make significant improvement and giving you the tools and support to create the life you desire.

My Personal Statement as a Psychologist


Boise Rapid Resolution Therapy
RRT is an innovative treatment that uses the power of connection, shared intention, and multilevel communication to help the deeper part of the brain get more in alignment with your goals and desires.  Clients report it as feeling uplifting and transformative.

The traumatic event is not the problem.  It is more of an information processing issue with your brain.  Therapy that helps your mind realize that you have survived the trauma and it is no longer a threat gets your brain and body to relax.

Boise Anxiety Treatment
Our anxiety tends to work against us and is rarely ever helpful in making good life decisions.  Therapy that clears up the sources of anxiety as well as helpful skills allows people to feel calmer and in control of their lives.

Depression can have various causes and I cater my approach to what has been driving yours.  Some of these include getting unstuck from the past, creating the future you want, and tapping into your healthy energy.

Boise EMDR Therapy
EMDR is a painless process that tends to use eye movement as a means of helping the brain adaptively process painful events from the past so that the person is able to have the memories of the past without the sense of reliving the pain of them.

Both the conscious and subconscious mind tend to need to be in alignment in order to succeed at overcoming addiction.  If a person wants to quit smoking, but their primitive/subconscious mind is not in agreement, then it is likely doomed to fail or be a non-stop battle.  I find working with all areas of the mind to be much more effective.

Relationship and Marital Therapy in Boise ID
I have extensive experience and enjoyment counseling couples to recapture and strengthen their care, respect, and love for one another.  I find that a sense of peace and passion naturally return by healing wounds and replacing old patterns with healthier ones.

Boise Anger Management Counselor
Anger rarely ever gets us what we really want.  It typically makes us impulsive, reactive, and not as smart.  Helping people to resolve past triggers as well as learn new coping skills helps them move past the anger and frustration.
