I counsel people and families finding how to grow and love. I have 3 specialty areas, (1) children and teens, (2) trauma recovery, and (3) couples. (1) For children and teens, I know how to address AdHD, abuse, school motivation, divorce, defiance, and substance issues. (2) When dealing with trauma, grief and heartbreak, I encourage adults to heal again to be lovers with a heart of a warrior, see www.youtube.com/watch?v=IjdICFdnkhE (3) 3) I counsel couples with my wife, Julie Ann Nardi, LCC--a couple counseling couples. For more on this go to gardencitycouples.com.
Family and our love life can be a big psychodynamic force for better or worse. A functional family is the first place to turn for healing. With children and teens I rely more on music, art, and play therapy. Adults prefer cost-effective talk therapies addressing anxiety, heartbreak, and depression.
Our clinic and garden is in the heart of Missoula. About half of my day is spent individually with adults and half with children and families. Also, Julie and I researched divorce in Western Montana. Our parenting plan, refined over 17 years now used by 128 families to keep peace.
