I use ACT, DBT, and attachment-based interventions to help you (or your family/partnership/child) move toward healing.
“There’s nothing more healing than choosing to love.” You want connection and closeness, yet you struggle to find it. You feel frustrated that your relationships aren’t fulfilling, or aren't right for you. You're reflective and thoughtful, and yet you don't know how to show up the way you want to in your life, partnership, or family. Perhaps you're struggling with isolation, anxiety, depression, or overwhelm. These are real challenges. Together we can co-create a gentle yet courageous space to explore who you are, what you need, and how to try new things that move you toward what you value most in life and in relationships.

I use relational, psychodynamic, attachment-based and mindfulness-based approaches.
As a psychotherapist, I act as your collaborator, witness and guide, and bring curiosity and warmth to your exploration. Trauma, past wounding and internalized negative beliefs can make it difficult to know what you need from moment to moment. Therefore, in session, I support you in cultivating self-agency so that you may become familiar with what is right for you at a pace that is both constructive and safe. I am here to help you navigate difficult transitions, past and new traumas, grief and loss, shifts in identity, and a desire to change patterns in relationship on your path towards fulfilling connections to self and others.

I use an integrative style, drawing on psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, and dialectical behavioral therapies and interweaving mindfulness, and attachment-based interventions.
I work with children, teens, parents, adults, and couples who are struggling with various aspects of life and wanting to make a change. My goal is to help you identify issues getting in your way and support you in making the changes necessary to feel better and improve your quality of life. Patients often come see me because they are anxious, over-thinking, unproductive, struggling with a relationship, or because a recent transition is throwing them off balance. In therapy you will gain insight about yourself and develop the coping skills you need to let go of negative thinking, live more mindfully, and feel more confident.

My therapeutic approach mainly focuses on helping my clients identify their strengths to help alleviate anxiety, depression, and trauma. I am a firm believer that our childhood experiences contribute to our beliefs, behavioral patterns, and selecting a romantic partner. Therapy is a process! To allow ourselves to be intimate and vulnerable with someone about our experiences and trauma can be daunting. As a therapist, it is my goal to help validate, create a safe environment and help understand aspects of lived experiences.

Unresolved childhood issues provide recurring challenges in adulthood and may show up in the form of sadness, worry, relationship problems, substance abuse or poor self-esteem. For adults abused as children, complex trauma may leave one with panic, obsessive thoughts, self-harming behaviors, or mood disorders. Sometimes individuals are given many diagnoses and medications and end up in therapies that do not resolve their underlying issue. Dissociative processes go unrecognized in many therapies, resulting in treatment that may not resolve the underlying problem, leaving one symptomatic. In my professional experience most individuals change and grow through a successful therapeutic encounter.

While the heart of my approach is attachment-based and psychodynamic, I regularly incorporate ideas from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and mindfulness-based behavioral approaches such as ACT and DBT.
Life is messy. As we all navigate it the best we can, a lot of us find survival strategies that make sense at the time but don’t serve us in the long run. If you or your child are having trouble in relationships, feeling consistently down or anxious, or finding yourself stuck in painful past experiences, therapy can help identify patterns that don’t serve you and build practices that enable you to thrive. ​

In general I work in a very warm relational, attachment-based style as I find this provides the safety and attunement to make meaningful, deep-level change.
Do you feel paralyzed when facing a major life transition --- deciding a career path, stepping into adulthood, becoming a couple or separating, becoming a parent or not? Perhaps your relationship is frozen and you and your partner can't talk without fighting or can't agree on a shared vision for your lives. These stuck places are so lonesome, even if you are stuck as a couple. I believe that good therapy can relieve the isolation and create movement and the change you are hoping for.

You made the first step! You have listened to that already wise part of you that knows now is a good time to reach out and be supported in a way that is tailored just for you. Are you finding yourself struggling for emotional wellbeing or balance, are you noticing that you are reacting in ways that aren’t working for you, in life, in relationships, even in the choices you are making? Are you finding yourself wrestling with anxiety, and feeling paralyzed in fear? Are you feeling as if there is no safe corner in your life where you can take in a breath and stop the daily push to produce?

If you’re like many of my clients, you might be asking yourself: “Why do I keep repeating the same patterns in my relationships, my career, and in my life?” “I have so much potential, why does it seem to elude me?” “Why don’t I feel closer to the people in my life?" Through a balance of support and challenge, I can help you break through the patterns that have been holding you back from living the life you truly want. My approach is a combination of focusing on patterns that show up in the here-and-now and exploring how your history may still be impacting the way you show up in your life today.

We are in challenging times with many unknowns. Perhaps you're struggling with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, or loss. Or you're dealing with transition, chronic pain or trauma. There are many paths to emotional wellness, and psychotherapy is one. If you are open to engaging in this process, I am here to help you to develop a deeper relationship with yourself and others and a practice of personal inquiry. This can involve learning to notice and strengthen what works, let go of what doesn't, and find new behaviors and understandings. The results can include a greater sense of confidence, ease and effectiveness.

As an experienced Licensed MFT, I offer a full range of psychotherapy services for men, women, adolescents, couples, and families. I founded The Men's Center for Counseling and Psychotherapy in 1984 in order to focus upon the psychological and emotional lives of men and boys. I particularly enjoy helping folks struggling with cross-cultural issues. My practice also includes work with women, girls, and couples of all persuasions. As an interactive therapist, I join my clients as they explore complex, often contradictory, intrapsychic forces. I bring humor, warmth, empathy, common-sense, and a genuine curiosity to the therapeutic encounter.
