My approach to therapy is relational. I believe the problems that lead people to therapy are often interpersonal in nature and I see the therapeutic relationship as the primary agent of change. I endeavor to create with my clients a relationship that does not repeat the problematic relational patterns that led them to therapy. I use the therapeutic relationship to show clients that different and more satisfying interpersonal outcomes are possible. I also draw upon an existential approach to help clients accept responsibility for their role in creating themselves, their relationships and their experiential world.

I work with adults--both individuals and couples in the areas of relationships, substance and sex addiction, mood disorders (anxiety and depression) and life transitions (divorce, empty nest, retirement). Relationships with others (partner, boss, siblings, friends, clients) are a central source of meaning and sometimes difficulty for us. I can work with you around relationship issues, including commitment, communication, sexuality, infidelity and healthy conflict.

I've spent my career as a therapist helping children, teens, adults, and couples deal with difficult emotions, mental health disorders, and trauma. In my office you will find radical acceptance, compassion, and someone to be a fellow traveler upon whatever journey you find yourself. I understand that starting therapy can be difficult, I take the time to build a safe and caring relationship. Therapy wont be scary or rushed. In therapy you can expect to reduce suffering, cultivate your authentic self, challenge your beliefs about the world, foster resiliency, and create more space for curiosity and compassion for yourself and others.

Welcome to my practice. I have about 15 years of clinical experience and have been featured on NBC/KCAL/HLN as an expert psychologist. I work primarily with men who have hit “rock bottom” and would like help getting up. These men are often in crisis when we first meet. The issues I address are typically related to unhealthy sexual behaviors, infidelity, financial recklessness, gambling, drugs/alcohol, dishonesty/lying, and relational conflicts. My therapy approach is a combination of psychoanalytic, cognitive-behavioral, and the 12-Step recovery model. I also share insight from my own painful but redemptive recovery journey.

My approach to psychotherapy/psychoanalysis is to provide a safe, non-judge mental and trusting environment where you can freely express your feelings. I believe each of us is striving to develop our own unique sense of self. We can do this together by identifying beliefs and behaviors that do not serve you and cultivating ones that do. This becomes a partnership. I am committed to helping you out of the darkness and into the light again. My training offers a wide variety of ways to achieve this task. Together we will follow closely your needs, desires and emotions.

I help people come home to themselves. Life's challenges can leave us questioning our intuition and values and impact our self-worth, relationships, and well-being. Perhaps this is due to a difficult upbringing, perhaps due to trauma and loss, or it may be due to external stressors such as marginalization and oppression. I help clients to find their voice, re-discover self-trust, uncover inner wisdom, and cultivate strength and balance. Together we will explore your experiences, nurture inner resources, and identify and resolve destructive patterns that impact your relationships.
