My philosophy behind the counseling relationship involves trust, unconditional acceptance, compassion, understanding and being real!

Nathan loves animals and people! He is a husband to his beautiful wife, and is anxiously awaiting his first born that is due at the end of July. He is also a dog Dad to a durpy Bernedoodle named Finley. To unwind, Nathan loves to spend time outdoors and read.

Nathan works with kids, teenagers, adults and couples. He is especially passionate about working with kids and young adults who may be struggling with sexual and/or gender related issues. These types of problems can be scary for the entire family; especially if the family comes from a Christian background. Working alongside parents is central to Nathan’s work with kids and teenagers. He uses play therapy and sandtray therapy to build trust and to work well with his younger clients.

Nathan strives to help the client understand the issue and the impact that the issue has on the client’s life. He values the externalization of the issue during therapy. You are not the problem, the problem is the problem. You can expect Nathan to use a lot of tools and worksheets in helping you to separate yourself from the problem and to help in the training of your mind. Nathan values unconditional positive regard and genuineness as a counselor. This being said, you can expect to not feel judged while working with Nathan.

Brainspotting is used a lot in sessions with Nathan when trauma seems to be a part of the picture. As a brain based, trauma informed therapy, brainspotting helps us to process trauma on a deeper level and to experience healing. To learn more about Brainspotting, please watch the following video:https://brainspotting.com/about-bsp/what-is-brainspotting/

Nathan also leads a weekly sexual addiction group for men, L.I.F.E Recovery Guide for Men.
