"Developing and maintaining a vital and fulfilling long-term relationship is one of the most difficult challenges we face in our lifetimes. I see impasses and breakdowns such as extensive arguing, lack of desire or estrangement as "natural and necessary failures" that point towards deeper individual issues that need to be addressed and worked through. In couples' sessions I help each partner to find a differentiated stance, interrupt dysfunctional patterns and develop healthier ways of relating and dealing with conflicts. In addition to working with couples and individuals, men's issues have been a focus of my interest for three decades."

"Many people, like those I usually work with, feel that, because of experiences in their past, they are not able to live as fully and happily as they wish. They want to be free of the effects of those experiences. Each person sets their own pace, but newer, effective approaches enable most people to reach their therapeutic goals more quickly than they could with older methods. These newer methods require out of session practice and record-keeping, so that we might better understand the events that cause difficulties and develop new ways to respond. The therapist is your guide, mentor, coach, and knowledgeable ally."

"After experiencing sexual trauma, it can feel like nothing makes sense. Your body is reacting with anxiety, exhaustion, and pain (or feeling nothing at all). You feel like everyone has an idea how you ‘should’ act. You might even feel like you have to offer ‘proof’ by telling your story or letting others see your pain. There may be a part of you that wonders if it’s your fault (believe me, it's not). You wish you could just forget it and feel good again. You feel so helpless, vulnerable, unsafe. "

Before becoming a therapist, I practiced law for 14 years in a large metropolitan law firm.
