About

Someone in my family was asking me recently "What is the most important consideration when looking for a therapist? " The fit, the feel, the vibe you have with the therapist really is best way to decide if this is a good match. A good fit, you will work well together. We will work with the issues that you are currently experiencing, noticing the internal roots of conflict, and finding ways to make meaningful and purposeful shifts or changes in your life. Experiencing difficulties from depression, relationship endings, truama, abuse, addictions, let's talk. - My practice is typically full but can offer wait list for new consultations
My background includes 8 years working in mental health agencies, 37 years of private practice experiences, and training in many different modalities including psychodynamic psychotherapy, Eriksonisan psychotherapy, Cognitive Therapy, Humanistic Therapies- and addiction counseling. -I have openings in my Monday "Men In Transition" group.
Nothing teaches us like experience and with over 37 years of experience as a practicing psychotherapist I have a fair amount of practical knowledge that I use in my work with patients. You get to experience therapy with a seasoned psychotherapist with no bullshit and no magic.- If fully vaccinated in office okay, otherwise zoom meetings!
