Currently seeing clients over Zoom. When face to face are permitted I will see people at Highland Ave. 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 have been a child & adolescent therapist for 46 yrs., & I enjoy my work greatly. I also work with parents who want advice and guidance about parenting skills. Children can change much faster than adults, and that is why I love working with young people. I try to support their strengths, encourage their creativity, relate to them with warmth and humor. I also work with parents with children, and with parents with teens if teens want me to. I like the challenge of connecting with both children and teens, ages 4 to 20. Connecting requires intuition and open-heartedness.

Waitlist Only Presently. Do you feel unheard or invalidated? Do you tell yourself, "I shouldn't be feeling this way"? Maybe you're a first, second or third time mom having unwanted or scary thoughts. Is parenthood not everything you imagined it to be? If so, you are not alone. Even if you are doing the very best you can, it is still easy to think it is not enough. Our moods and stress have their way of taking over and make us think we no longer have power over our thoughts and emotions. I want to help you take that control back. We will create a space to express and work through your thoughts and emotions freely-without judgement.
