I trust that people come to therapy seeking a more authentic happiness; and I work as best as I can to help clients let go of concepts and mistaken views of themselves that have led to more pain and confusion. I work with individuals, couples, children and families, bringing warmth and understanding to the relationships and life problems that surround us. Sometimes the first call is the most difficult. I am often available to speak briefly or will return your call as soon as possible, making the next steps and new perspectives possible.

Thanks for visiting my site. Your struggles may have brought you to this website, but I believe that you are more than your "symptoms". We often find ourselves struggling with our own struggles rather than using our inherent resilience and strengths to continue traveling in the direction that holds deeper meaning for us.

Congratulations on looking for a therapist. These are difficult times, and you’re not alone if you find yourself struggling with feelings of depression, worry, and uncertainty. Therapy can reduce suffering and foster the growth of hope, equanimity, joy, and feelings of connectedness. For those starting therapy, I prioritize building a strong rapport within a climate of safety and trust; a compassionate, empathetic therapeutic environment; and clear and responsive communication; and respect for your personal goals and values.

It's hard to be a person. Nobody goes through life without pain and struggle. We carry our experiences, whether difficult or traumatic, in ways that shape how we relate to ourselves, to our thoughts and feelings, our hopes and fears, and to the other people in our lives. We are often unaware of how these internal structures shape our lives in the present moment. Psychotherapy offers an environment, a method, and a therapeutic relationship with which to understand and transform how we experience ourselves and the world around us.

No matter what age or developmental phase of life we are in, it can be so easy to become trapped in ideas of who we should be or how we should be by looking to external comparisons. In therapy, I offer myself as an ally and guide to help you discover the version of yourself that brings you the most internal joy and satisfaction. I strive to create a safe and nurturing environment in the therapy room that allows you to consider all facets of yourself and to truly examine what your needs are and how to meet them.

Everyone has the potential for growth, healing, and self-discovery. In my career I have been fortunate to work with individuals, couples, and families from a diverse range of backgrounds and experiences. I have witnessed the resilience that each person has and how providing support can help people channel their unique strengths, resources, and insights. I aim to create a safe and supportive environment that empowers those I work with to explore their emotions and experiences, and to work towards developing greater self-awareness, self-acceptance, and self-confidence.

I specialize in treating adults in their 20's and 30's. Most of my clients have the things that they believe constitute a good life (secure jobs, close friend groups, active social lives, etc) yet they continue to feel anxious, lost, sad, unfulfilled, burned out, and perplexed by what their purpose on this earth really is. Additionally, many of them experience significant distress caused by an endless drive towards achievement rather than fulfillment and a self-defeating pattern of comparing themselves to others.

Therapy makes life better. It does so in ways that are both clear and concrete and somewhat mysterious. Maybe you arrive with a set goal -- manage anxiety, find a better job, or get more from a stalled relationship. Or maybe you're experiencing a more generalized state of existential discomfort or depression -- grappling with how to find meaning in life, a sense of cosmic isolation, or fear of mortality. We'll work collaboratively with the internal and external forces that are causing suffering, building sufficient self-support to make real, lasting changes.

We all struggle at times to learn from life and to become our best selves. As a young man I pursued a variety of strategies, healthy and unhealthy, to cope with my own struggles. I think we all do that. When I entered into psychotherapy for the first time I found the help that I needed to learn and to grow and to overcome the struggles that had been so overwhelming for me. I became a psychologist to pass on what had been so helpful for me.

The decision to start psychotherapy is significant as it often means that you are suffering in some way or you've realized that what you have been doing is no longer working, and you are seeking change in your life. As your therapist, I will help you find meaning in the connections of your story and the patterns of your relationships, as well as discover and challenge your conflicts, assumptions and limitations. Through this exploration, you will be able to know yourself more deeply and live with more freedom, possibility, joy and self-understanding. My approach is collaborative, warm, and authentic.
