Thanks for your interest in my practice. My clients are often high-achievers, yet struggling to stay afloat in other aspects of their life. Men and women professionals often seek out my psychotherapy and coaching services when they find themselves stuck in long-standing patterns of addictive behaviors, anxiety and depression or when faced with learning how to manage a significant change in their personal or business life. I provide an empathic ear and will also challenge you in ways to help you meet your goals. I help clients gain focus, develop options and increase the motivation needed to make meaningful, sustainable changes.

I treat adolescents of 13+ with their growth and individuation efforts, both male and female.
I have had success treating the middle aged female, 40-60, with relational, launching, re-entry and life change issues. I also integrate biofeedback of various types into the treatment program in order to either avoid or minimize medication interventions, when appropriate. I search diligently the patient's medical history and symptoms, and work with local medical providers, to rule out general medical conditons that may be driving psychological symptoms, e.g. hypothyroid and depression, or adrenal issues and anxiety or depression. Anxiety can be treated with biofeedback interventions and I provide in-office treatment and take home devices.

My work with children and families, has lead me to developing a much needed group for men on how to be the father's they want to be.
Has life become stressful and overwhelming? Are your family relationships being impacted? I believe this stress can wound the spirit and cause parents to be angry, children to be angry and act out and spouses to become resentful. I can help families and individuals communicate in ways that help to heal old wounds and restore a sense of hope. I work with your own internal strengths to support change and help you discover your unmet needs. I strongly believe in the power of self-exploration to create opportunities for positive life changes.

When it comes to individual counseling, my specialty is working with MEN .
DIVORCE is devastating. As a skilled and trained Divorce Mediator, I specialize in assisting difficult and litigious couples through the entire process of their divorce. With 3 decades of experience, I mediate spousal and child support, investments, properties and pension funds, along with establishing a careful and appropriate parenting plan. My firm prepares all of the legal documentation. Mediation is one tenth the cost of Litigation. The stress, anger, physical exhaustion and emotional pain of the court system takes an enormous toll on ones life. Research shows that a litigious divorce in the courts creates significantly more trauma in children.

I find that being a male therapist who has specialty training with children and adolescents is rare.
Although I work with children and adolescents individually, working with them alone is not sufficient. As a parent myself, I am very aware of what it is like for me to entrust my childrens' care into the hands of another. For me, working with children is thus a very privileged thing. To be successful, I first start with earning the trust and respect of both parent and child. Although I specialize in working with children and adolescents, I also offer services to college-aged individuals and older adults.

After 20+ years as a therapist, using traditional talk types of therapy, I have found that "EMDR" is the most rapid & comprehensive, form of therapy with lasting results. It allows you to quickly change the heart of the problem, which is typically unresolved feelings from life experiences. Many therapists teach you only to manage symptoms. With EMDR, significant week to week changes are common. Sessions are guided by a "roadmap" which we develop based on your life history. I also do marital and parenting work along with behavioral and psychodynamic therapy. Focusing on spiritual development is available if desired.

24 years as a clinical social worker has taught me that finding the right therapist is like trying on a pair of shoes. It has to be the right fit for you to start the journey of self-exploration. I believe in a strength based approach, where we not only explore the issues that brought you to therapy, but we explore how to expand the things that bring you joy and happiness. As Dr. Seuss once said, “life is a great balancing act” and he could not have been more right.

Marcos founded his practice because he wanted to give individuals and couples who struggle with addiction/anger a place where they feel safe to be deeply seen. Marcos noticed that in his own personal struggles with addiction and anger he had a deep desire to numb the pain of his underlying problems and as a result of suppressing these issues they eventually manifested in his life in the form of drugs/alcohol. Through extensive research and direct experience Marcos has learned that addiction is not a primary problem but rather the symptom of a deeper underlying issue. Is drugs or alcohol destroying your life? Call now! Make it count!

My approach to therapy is to provide a safe, non-judgmental space where you can explore and identify the underlying beliefs driving your behaviors, shaping your habits, and impacting your relationships. We will work on a little going back, a lot on the present with a focus on the future. I ask questions and give feedback. I am not a head nodding type of therapist with long annoying blocks of silence. I put things out there for you to consider. If it resonates with you, we go with it. If it doesn't, we don't. You will learn to better manage negative thoughts, emotions and behaviors, allowing you to meet your own personal goals.
