'BE CONSTRUCTIVE

WITH YOUR BLUES'

THOM YORKE

 

ABOUT ME

ABOUT ME

I'm basically the same person as a therapist and not a therapist, which is someone who's really into deep conversation, bad puns, and trying to figure out what's bothering you and how to resolve it.

Before turning my attention to counseling, I made a feature film called 'Missing Pieces,' wrote a few books, and sold 400 pickles at a movie theater. To stay creative I'm always tinkering with a writing project and keeping up with live music, new songs, and art of all kinds. I bring this creativity into our work together, to explore the stuck points in your life in a very personalized and hopefully unique way. 

As a heads up, I'm going to need to know your favorite movie before we get started.

EXPERIENCE

Through volunteering at the local Crisis Line and seven years of employment at an eating disorder treatment center, I've had the chance to work with a wide range of highly complex issues, with individuals, couples, and families. I've been formally and practically trained in a collection of techniques that I hope to seamlessly weave into our conversations as we work through whatever's weighing you down.

If helpful, I'm also happy to share about my own recovery from an eating disorder and other encounters with life to remind you that you're not alone.
