"I work most often with people struggling with the course of their life: its direction, its quality, or their traveling companions. People come to therapy when the problems of living have become too painful, scattered, depressing, frightening, or paralyzing to bear. For others, reaching an emotional breaking point isn't part of deciding to seek therapy: instead, they're frustrated at not having "figured out" how to build a rich life that includes satisfying relationships, work that doesn't demean them, and a range of human experiences."

"Are you struggling to balance the changing expectations of being a man? Finding that your behavior doesn’t match your intentions? Do demands for emotional intimacy leave you feeling confused and misunderstood? Has work become a place of negativity and resentment? Men have unique needs and face many confusing messages about how to deal with problems. We’re good at pretending that there’s nothing wrong until we just can’t take it anymore. Even as young adults transitioning out of college, young men are entering into a confusing landscape. What if you could step into being more confident and successful at work and in relationships?"
