Past failures, poor decisions and missed opportunities result in feeling unforgiving towards ourself and cynical about life. Drug abuse, alcohol or other problematic behaviors may have been a source of coping but we have realized that the original problems are still there and sometimes get worse. Learn about your depression and addiction and you will learn about yourself. Making changes in our life begins by recognizing that changes need to occur. Working with the right therapist can help you learn and apply new and adaptive coping skills to identify and maintain a life worth living. HIPAA compliant Telehealth services available.

Seeking psychotherapy is a sign of resourcefulness. When we are overwhelmed by painful feelings, we scramble to find ways to avoid and deny them. We cling to stories and beliefs that leave us feeling anxious and exhausted. Healing takes place when we can identify what is at the root of this suffering, and explore it with compassion and curiosity.

Are you finding it difficult to manage an addiction and feel rehab might not be the best option for you? Departing from your loved ones, job and duties in life is not always necessary to get yourself feeling confident and in control of your decision making. If you are suffering from addiction, I can relate with how scary and troubling your situation might be. Addiction may have you feeling shameful, guilty, alone, angry and helpless, wondering why you cannot stop a cycle that continues to cause problems in your life. I have personally been where you are and know that addiction counseling may be more effective then traditional rehab.

I believe in growth and acceptance of one's place in the present. I have found the way in which we move through the world is usually the path of what is familiar to us, but too often this way no longer serves us. Shifting our way of thinking can stimulate an alternative pathway of moving through the world and achieving the peace of mind we seek.

I work primarily with men who have hit “rock bottom” and would like help getting up. These men are often in crisis when we first meet. The issues I address are typically related to unhealthy sexual behaviors, infidelity, financial recklessness, gambling, drugs/alcohol, dishonesty/lying, and relational conflicts. My therapy approach is a combination of psychoanalytic, cognitive-behavioral, and the 12-Step recovery model. I also share insight from my own painful but redemptive recovery journey.

It is a brain exercise system that helps you change by creating a more functional and stable brain state, reducing anxiety and depression, PTSD, migraines, artistic blocks, and ADHD. It enhances focus, clarity, memory, and improves relationships. I work with the entertainment industry, schools, trauma survivors, and I teach psychology and creative process at Antioch University.
