About

I have worked for over 25 years with folks who have struggled with a range of internal, interpersonal, relational, and environmental challenges and questions. This includes: difficult thoughts; "stuck" patterns of behavior, including addictions; persistent sadness and depression; relationship and family difficulties; loneliness; thoughts of life-and-death; trauma; identity and sexuality questions; experiences of madness; and other difficult life situations. I focus on working with adolescents (16+), young adults (18-25), and adults of all ages. I also work with men of all ages on questions of masculinity and "manhood".
My style is always rooted in client-centered therapy. This is a deeply reflective approach that includes: Genuineness, Unconditional Positive Regard, and Accurate Empathy. My work and personal experiences have helped me develop a sensitivity to, and a comfort with, the myriad of ways that people express their pain, their questions, and their desires.
I believe the most important aspects of an helpful therapist are: someone that listens deeply and reflectively; refrains from giving too much advice or information; helps folks speak themselves more clearly and more deeply; listens to others' pain without trying to “solve” anything or “fix” them; and makes effective use of the therapy relationship.
