No two people are the same, no two stories identical. Perhaps you are already clear about what you want from therapy, perhaps our starting point is to figure this out. No matter what, all of you is welcome. Together, we aim to: heal old emotional wounds you might still be hurting from, clear up current anxiety, stress confusion or disheartenment that weigh on you; make good decisions for your life and find inner joy, calm and balance to sustain you in a meaningful way of being. When working with couples, I support partners to repair relational injuries, strengthen communication, commitment and trust and deepen love and intimacy.

Today, many men are confused about our role and relevance in society. A clear sense of manhood, is I believe, critical to healthy relationships between men and women; men and other men; and obviously men as parents. I believe that my personal experiences are relevant here. Over many years, as parent, partner, friend and colleague, I have learned from my many mistakes and now feel that in a non-judgmental and collaborative way, I have something to offer both men and women in this regard. I believe that therapy is the best way to find out about oneself, that we are all unique and that each person’s life pathway is intensely personal
