I believe that we come into this world whole and remain whole as we travel through our lives. Collectively and individually, however, we suffer trauma as the result of the human condition. We develop brilliant coping mechanisms for survival that, over time, become a hindrance to our continued evolution. I use a holistic treatment approach, that addresses the whole person (mind, body, soul and emotions). I view my work with clients through the lens of social justice. I am especially sensitive to how various societal oppression becomes internalized and impact our mental health and identity.

*NOT CURRENTLY TAKING NEW CLIENTS* Welcome to my psychology practice. Intimate relationships are challenging for just about everyone. Keeping a passionate connection alive over time requires unique skills, persistence and determination. I work with individuals and couples who wish to deepen emotional or sexual intimacy, improve communication, strengthen their romantic bond, heal from affairs, and folks who feel addicted to pornography or other sexual outlets, as well as depression, irritability, anxiety, etc. Probably the best way to get a sense of me quickly is to read my Psychology Today blog, The Future of Intimacy.

Approval seeking, bad relationships and addictions keep us from living out our true potential, but they're not the real problem. Many practitioners provide a long list of conditions, diagnoses and symptoms they treat. Frankly, I'm not all that interested in symptoms: I want to help you figure out why you've been using the same strategies for years and expecting different results. If you want to stop waking up every morning and hoping that somehow - today - your life is somehow going to be different, you've got to DO something different.

With so many external forces competing for your attention, it's hard to even take stock of these questions. And that's on top of the more timeless and pressing life transitions associated with adulthood, college, careers, long term relationships, aging, or parenting, to name a few. Failing to address these questions leaves you carrying around little bags of anxiety, depression, resentment, or a general disenchantment with the world promised to you. In this state, it's hard to live deliberately.
