Welcome to my practice. I have about 15 years of clinical experience and have been featured on NBC/KCAL/HLN as an expert psychologist. 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.

Are you at a loss of what to do next to help your relationship? Do you feel like you've tried everything to "fix" it? Maybe it seems like every conversation turns into an argument. Perhaps an affair or betrayal has turned your life upside down. Maybe you're realizing you have past wounds that are impacting your current circumstances and you long for the ability to live in freedom without depression or anxiety biting at your heels.

Are you experiencing difficulties at home, work, or in significant relationships with others? Are you looking to find a deeper level of connection and passion in your life? So much of our energy goes into building a happy home, a loving relationhip, a thriving family and a successful career. However, sometimes these successes do not bring us the happiness we want and we are left feeling unfulfilled and vulnerable. I believe therapy is a special opportunity to understand yourself more deeply and make any changes necessary to improve and create the life, work and relationships that you most deeply want.

A lot of the issues that people face stem from repeating destructive patterns that lead to the same undesired outcomes. Such behavioral patterns were developed not by choice, but by necessity and are habits of life saving responses such as: chase, avoid, anger, anxiety, etc. The problem is that these responses create only an illusion of safety. In treatment we will identify your patterns and how to change them. Through a series of techniques, you can learn more effective ways to communicate confidently, break performance ceilings, and manage your life more effectively in relationships, on the job, and in and out of the public eye.

I truly have a passion for connecting with people and believe in providing a safe place for healing and growth. Therapy is a process and relies heavily on the connection a person has with the therapist. I look at that process as a journey. I work from the viewpoint in which I am a partner along for the journey of change, rather than an authoritarian expert. I strive to work as an active team member with my client to find the appropriate method of healing that suits the individual.

Listen, here’s the thing. If you’ve come this far, you’ve most likely read a lot of therapist profiles, and may read a lot more. Any therapist is probably going to tell you that they are equipped with what it takes to help you, and for the most part, that’s probably true. But just like any relationship, the therapist/client relationship has to be two things: A good fit, And not an easy fix. The truth is, mental and emotional health and well-being isn’t like a fad diet. You can’t keto your way to stability. Being healthy is a lifestyle, a commitment to working at something that can sometimes seem daunting.

My clients are usually hard workers, and are very self critical. They expect so much out of themselves, and don't feel like they are ever enough. People pleasers that are frustrated they can't please everyone, are often tired and frustrated with where life is going compared to where they wish it was. They often have relationships that could be better, whether starting, maintaining, or ending. They are tired of struggling, they are ready to make a change, to be part of the solution.
