About

I am an experienced therapist and psychiatrist with a practice specializing in working with those seeking to explore and realize their full potential. I have worked successfully with many individuals, including physicians, clergy, and other professionals as well as individuals exploring LGBTQ+ identities. Common to these communities are the challenges, opportunities, and deeper meaning that one’s callings provide. Contemporary society doesn’t always make such self-exploration easy or convenient. That’s where our time can focus solely on you, your self-understanding, and goals in life.
My work focuses on our talking together seeking a mutual understanding of who you are and who you want to be if these are different. What more do you want from your life? What more do you want to contribute in this life? Which relationships do you want to deepen? Which do want to be free of? Is anything in the way of you living your full potential?
No one is spared life’s challenges. All of us us have our stories to tell. I have helped many during my gratifying career to find deeper meaning and peace. If you would like to see if there is a potential “fit” between what you desire and what I can offer, please let me know.
