I believe that we all have deep within us a drive for wholeness and to reach our true potential yet so often we fall short to the point that life can become almost unbearable. For me even with early success in life as a professional athlete, I had already begun on a dark path which began in early adolescence. It took getting sober, a spiritual awakening and intense psychotherapy to get on a path toward healing. As I began the journey back to health I went back to school to become a psychotherapist and have since devoted my life to helping those with similar struggles.

Early in my recovery I met my now mentor Dr. Allen Berger (the best clinician I have ever witnessed) and have been through his extensive Gestalt therapy training program. Gestalt therapy is a here and now approach which seeks to address the most pressing concern and in a non-judgmental and compassionate way.

I provide therapy to children, adolescents, adults, families, and couples with a variety of concerns (most notably addiction, anxiety and depression). I also have extensive experience working with adolescent clients and provide a sports psychology and team building service to local youth and high school sports programs.
