Located on Newbury St, I specialize in supporting men and fathers as they strive to become the best version of themselves. I tend to work with a lot of new fathers who happen to be former athletes. My background as a former high school and college athlete seems to serve our connection. My training as a therapist with a specialty in parenting, anger management and spiritual issues also informs how I work. The men who come see me want to channel their aggression in a healthier way and are incredibly self reliant and often have a hard time asking for help. I try to make it a little easier by being non-threatening male presence.

Men tend to be less inclined to seek out therapy because it implies that they are weak and struggling. I actually see it as a sign of strength and courage to take responsibility for what's not working. My job is to create a safe space where men can look at the hard stuff and expect to be supported and challenged.

Looking at what is hard is not fun, my primary responsibility is to help my clients make sense of the parts of life that are difficult. We do this by connecting the dots of their story so that it is coherent and integrated.
