Welcome to my Practice
Counseling can be a liberating and life-changing experience. It can free you from depression, anxiety, self-doubt, relationship conflicts, and so many other things that rob life of joy and meaning. Going into therapy is not easy for anyone, so you are not alone if you feel reluctant. In fact, therapy is not for the faint of heart. It takes strength and courage to look honestly at yourself and your relationships. It's hard work. But it's the best work you'll ever do.
Among other things, I help people who are struggling with depression and anxiety, work-related issues, family and couples conflict, low self-esteem, and anger problems.
I see myself as a guide, who can help you resolve your emotional issues of the past and the present. Working together, we can open the door to a brighter and more confident future for you.
After going through a painful divorce, I felt like the best of my life was behind me. I felt like damaged goods. Like I was unlovable. But I was wrong. Working with J.D., I learned to love myself. I don't think I had really ever done that before.A.R.
I have suffered with depression all of my life, and have been on an off medication since I was in my 20's. I've always had a good job. But sometimes it was hard to even get out of bed, and things always looked gray. A few months after I started therapy with J.D., I got to the root of some "old stuff" and learned to challenge the messages I got when I was young. Then my depression began to lift. I feel like I'm really living now. Just ask my family!Ben
I like the fact that J.D. is easy to talk to and really cares. I'm usually pretty shy around adults, but J.D. made me feel comfortable. I had so many worries at school and at home that my grades were going downhill fast. I learned to deal with my anxiety in a better way, and not take everything so seriously. Once I did that, my grades started going up. That also helped things get better at home.Kelly
My wife and I both came from broken families. When we got married, we swore it would never happen to us. We thought we would have the perfect marriage because we knew what not to do. Both of our father's were alcoholics, so we grew up trying not to rock the boat. In our marriage, we did the same thing. We drifted apart instead of facing conflicts honestly. With J.D.'s help, we now can talk about how we feel. We can even get angry without worrying that we're going to get a divorce.Bill
I was lucky to find JD on recommendation from my wife’s therapists. Sometimes family members of a person suffering from mental illness need counselling to help them see their way through this debilitating disease and attempt to help each other live productive lives in the face of the change in that person. JD is a compassionate counselor, thoughtful and insightful. I would recommend him without reservation.Name withheld
