Announcement icon During the COVID-19 crisis I am moving to a telehealth platform in accordance with state and federal health guidelines.

About

I enjoy a diverse practice that seeks to create a safe environment from which a client can feel free to collaborate in a shared vision of goal attainment. I see individuals, couples, and families. I adopt an integrated approach grounded in evidence-based practice with a particular area of interest and expertise in existential therapeutic applications where indicated. I have published extensively in the area of Existential Psychology (e.g., https://www.palgrave.com/gp/book/9781349952106). I enjoy working with clients who seek a deeper self-understanding in pursuit of transcendence.
I enjoy working with a diverse range of client populations, modalities, and concerns. I have several peer review publications in the area of existential integrative therapy.
