Announcement icon I am still accepting new clients and am offering phone and video sessions via Zoom or Skype for clients who are distancing or quarantined.
I help individuals, couples, and parents tap into their strengths in order to overcome challenges and thrive in the face of stress, anxiety, depression, insomnia, sleep deprivation, ADHD, postpartum mood challenges, career changes, and relationship difficulties. My background as a former high school athlete (Football, Tennis, & Wrestling) provides a frame for working with competitive men and women. My clients describe me as warm, humorous, collaborative and results driven. I'm a pragmatic clinician with an expertise in empowering people to access their best potentials during life transitions such as premarriage, first time parenthood, job transitions, divorces, & deaths.
My clinical expertise has been featured in Psychology Today, Huffington Post, Vice News, YourTango, and Mom.me. I specialize in strength-centered, solution-focused treatment and support. This includes providing an inclusive multicultural lens so clients of all backgrounds, but especially marginalized groups, feel validated, understood, and respected.
There are few places for men and women to talk safely and honestly about what they are going through. I provide that space for individuals and couples by listening actively, providing firm and compassionate feedback, so we can help you take charge and resolve the challenging parts of your life.

More about this group

New Fathers and Partners Skills Seminar

The transition to parenthood is difficult for moms and dads. While many new and expecting moms struggle from perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADs) otherwise known as postpartum depression - dads and partners do too. If mom is suffering and you are trying to support her through it - this is a great opportunity to meet other partners having a similar experience while gaining practical support and tips from an expert clinician. The best thing for partners to do to get through this challenging time is to get the support THEY need. 25$ per class.
