My therapy style is down to earth, warm, inviting and active. I believe therapy is most effective when it is a collaborative process between the client and the therapist. We will work together to explore, reflect and identify areas in which insight and change are needed to achieve your goals. In sessions, I openly share my thoughts and my perspective as a guiding force but respect and believe that you are the leader in the room. I provide therapy as a transformative experience or a space to just let go, it can be whatever you need it to be, as long as the purpose of this space is for you to heal and find more joy in your life.

You really can have a life where you feel more connected, self assured, happier and at peace. You probably have been struggling for awhile and now you are ready to courageously face the difficulties that have kept you from living your best life. Your difficulties may stem from an unsatisfying relationship, unfulfilling job, history of trauma, or you may be worried about your child.

For 25 years, I have assisted people with a variety of addictions, from the exogenous abuse of drugs and alcohol, to the ones that stem from the chemicals already inside the brain, such as sex and love addiction, abandonment patterns, sexual compulsions, gambling, internet, and workaholism. Unlike most psychotherapists, I’m a Board Certified Addiction Specialist, well versed in both abstinence and harm reduction strategies. Unlike most addiction professionals, I am also psychotherapist who also treats the anxiety, depression, and other psychological issues that often manifest after being uncovered through recovery.

I’m not beating around the bush here: things are pretty messed up right now. And when it feels like the world is on fire, of course you’re going to be freaking out. Maybe your life seemed fine until recently, and maybe you’ve been struggling longer than you can remember. Either way, I am here to help. I work with all ages, genders, sexualities, racial backgrounds, cultures, and subcultures. From work stress to identity crises, communication problems to childhood trauma, all issues need space to breathe, and a big part of that is finding a therapist you can be real with.

For three decades I have been privileged as a marriage and family therapist to make a difference in people's lives. Though I am most known for being a Jungian-oriented therapist and author, my training in pastoral counseling and spiritual direction, my experience in long-term psychodynamic treatment, and my long-standing interest in all the many forms and expressions of human sexuality, as an "out" gay therapist and activist, are areas of expertise that come together in my work to help clients find a way to be their deepest, healthiest and most authentic selves.

I see therapy as a collaborative process. In a sense, you are my guide—and I am yours. Together, we will explore your life and seek for an embodied understanding of your path toward well-being—as defined by you and your goals. You are the expert of your own experience. I fully respect and celebrate this fact, and encourage in all my clients the growth of self-awareness, creativity, intuition, self-love, acceptance, empowerment, self-support, compassion, imagination, meaning, and sense of purpose—the roots of a healthy life. I am here to help you align with the natural healing power inherent within life, within you.

I work with adults, teens, and couples struggling with depression, anxiety, and the inability to effectively communicate. With individuals, I help reframe challenges and liberate talents, especially in men alienated from the economy and meaningful purpose. I taught for years in a high school, and thus am comfortable working with adolescents. My orientation is eclectic, however I draw mostly from psychodynamic and relational theory, as well as CBT techniques. I find these approaches complementary, even necessary to establish a holistic treatment plan.

Do you ever wonder, “Maybe I picked the wrong partner?” Or worry that arguments are a red flag? Perhaps your relationship feels like too much work, and you imagine others have it easy. These are just stories we tell ourselves. Truth is, all struggles—entrenched conflict, areas of incompatibility, life transitions, limping along in your sex life—can bring you closer. The only essential ingredient is an openness to change. That’s where I come in, to coach you in building new ways of relating to each other, starting in the first session. As a certified Imago Relationship Therapist, I specialize in relationship issues.

I love supporting women with exploring their female identities and managing issues related to this and all aspects of their intersectional identities. In addition, I also have a history of study and therapeutic work with those who are struggling with anxiety, PTSD, depression, suicidal ideation, and exploring racial identity.

When personally challenged, you might draw on strategies that help you through without helping you grow. When heard and valued, the human spirit is resilient in sometimes surprising ways. I work collaboratively with you, respecting and listening for your particular and unique challenges and potential. I help you to cultivate as well as practice what needs to be developed and integrated in your life. I consider my own study of psychotherapy to be a lifelong practice and work with somatic and relational principles. I welcome you to bring your concerns. I am committed to bring the skills and training of my years in this work.

Sometimes in life, depression and anxiety can feel like they are limiting your options and moving you away from your values. This can create feelings of misdirection and occasional coping in ways that are temporarily helpful but ultimately hurtful. Or it can lead you to unhappy relationships. You may struggle to stop these patterns, even though you know these are not the directions you want your life to go. Maybe you are trying to figure out who you are, trying on different personas and hoping that one will feel right.

Do you find it hard to be yourself in all the areas of your life? Are you noticing that you are exhausted by efforts you make to play a role that isn't truly you at work or in your relationships. Are you wishing the relationships in your life felt vibrant and rewarding, but you find they are stagnant, uninspired or frustrating? Do you feel sad, anxious or discouraged about the state of our world, our country or your community? Are you sensing that things could be different, that you could feel more at ease, that things could be easier overall. Do you crave a sense of peace?

People come to therapy for different reasons. Sometimes those reasons are clear and other times it is a feeling of being stuck, unhappy or empty. I will help you to better understand the underlying factors that interfere with your freedom in moving forward or with a sense of self and closeness in relationships. I will help create a space that allows you to make connections between the present and the past, and find new ways of moving forward to live a happier and more fulfilling life.

Sometimes life is over the top intense. Sometimes that's an understatement. If you've been in therapy before without lasting results, my approach may be particularly helpful for you. Both a social worker and psychologist, I use non-pathologizing models of the human psyche to address trauma, depression, gender identity, anxiety and conflict. I'm skillful at helping people improve relationships, navigate loss and life transition, change old patterns, and turn painful experiences into sources of meaningful discovery. Working with a clinically astute, sincere therapist can be life-changing. We can do this!

My primary area of focus has been working with people who suffer from trauma and anxiety, in addition to depression. I do much work with those who suffer from emotional neglect, abuse histories, & post-traumatic stress (PTSD). I'm certified in EMDR and am continually impressed at the ability of something so simple to so rapidly relieve pain and suffering. EMDR has been listed as one of the leading trauma therapies. It can also be very effective in helping those who suffer from a childhood history of family difficulties and a lack of nurturing. Also trained in Somatic Experiencing.

Thank you for taking the time to review my profile. Finding a therapist is easy, but finding the "right" therapist during a difficult time in your life is not at all easy. I've been in private practice for over 35 years and have seen individuals, couples and families dealing with a wide spectrum of issues. Over and over again, I've been pleased to hear how quickly my clients felt a sense of "connection" with me in working on their problems. This connection is an essential element of a successful outcome.
