Hi, I’m Jussi
Welcome to my practice. I founded New Growth for people who want to make healthy, lasting change.
Hope & Healing are here.
Making changes, while difficult, is ultimately empowering. If you’re stuck, Ill help you discover what blocks you from moving forward. Our journey together begins with your experience and perspective. Once you feel that I “get it” then I will be able to help you discover the un-ment needs within that keep you unfulfilled. From that point, its a matter of developing skills to get those needs met in a healthy way for you today. Our journey ends when you have confidence that you no longer need my help.
People ask me all the time “doesn’t it drive you nuts doing what you do?” Actually no! I got started in this career because I went to therapy as a young man and discovered that I loved the deep personal journey that good counseling provides. I have sat longer in the “client” chair than the “therapist” one, and so feel good about sharing what has worked for me.
What really keeps me going is the incredible transformations I witness day-in and day-out in my office and with my colleagues for whom I provide training. There is nothing so incredible as when one or more people discover how to be free from the things that keep them hurting.
In Practice since 1999
I’ve helped hundreds of kids, teens, and adults in family, couples, and individual counseling.

Timely & Effective
My goal is to help you reach your goals in an efficient and timely manner, so you don’t have to stay in therapy forever.
