I have been a psychotherapist for 20 years. My practice specializes in helping men redefine their approach to relationships in a way that feels authentic, and in line with healthy male emotional development. I specialize in self-esteem, self-actualization, and helping men build and maintain attraction and intimacy. The foundation for male self-esteem begins in childhood and sets the foundation for men to share themselves in relationships, feel successful, and being a meaningful part of their children's lives. I also specialize in Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder in men and women, as well as recovery from abusive relationships.

My clients come to me with a broad range of goals. Often they have concerns about relationships, meaning, or their place in the world, and these can be reflected in feelings of anxiety or sadness. Sometimes my clients come with a feeling that something in their life is not quite right, but lack clarity as to what that is, or what they really want.

*NOT ACCEPTING NEW PATIENTS* I’ve found that a key to feeling vital, ironically, is learning to feel bad: learning how to feel and accept painful feelings with less judgement, fear, and struggle.  Sometimes we grip tightly to or push away a difficult emotion, person, or an idea of what should be.  When we grip tightly or push away, we feel controlled, demoralized, and rigid.  When we stop struggling with painful memories, emotions, thoughts, and people we cannot control, we find an unexpected kind of happiness; the kind of happiness that comes of feeling all the complexities of being human with compassion, freedom, and grace.

My approach is conversational, flexible, and collaborative. When we meet, I strive to offer compassion, support, and humor to help you best meet your goals. I am flexible in my approach, as there is no one “right way” to help you move toward your goals. Together we will find an approach that is most reflective of who you are and speaks to your strengths. Throughout this process, we will remain curious about your experience and integrate an understanding of your past and present that can inform your future. This process can be challenging, as well as exciting and empowering.

Acknowledging that we need support is a difficult, brave decision, and therapy is a powerful tool in understanding our lives . I believe that all behaviors, thoughts, and feelings make sense in the context of experience. I work with clients to develop insight, clarity and self-compassion to effect meaningful change. I employ a warm, empowering approach to treatment, and use a social justice lens to acknowledge the ways that oppression impacts experience. I incorporate elements of psychodynamic, relational, and internal family systems modalities into my work with clients.

I help young, dynamic professionals and students deal with the anxiety and overwhelm that can creep up on you as you're out there doing what you always thought you were supposed to be doing. You work really hard professionally or academically but it's getting harder to hold it all together as you wrestle with the doubts and the stress. Your relationships might be feeling less than happy and fulfilling lately, or you're just plain overwhelmed. On the outside, you look like you have it all together - but that doesn't make you feel OK on the inside.

TELEHEALTH ONLY. I am a MA Licensed Mental Health Therapist and Certified EMDR clinician. EMDR is an evidence-based, highly effective treatment for adverse experiences and traumatic memory. When you experience trauma, your brain may not be able to process it. You may feel depressed, irritable, have nightmares, anxiety, and interpersonal conflicts. You may freeze that unpleasant moment in time and replay it when images, sounds, smells, feelings, etc. trigger you. EMDR therapy helps the brain process thoughts and feelings as it did before the adverse experience and return you to a feeling of calm and connection.

As of 1//8/22 I am accepting new clients midafternoons via telehealth. Currently I am working primarily with couples who are seeking relationship help. Contact me by email. The personality match, style of working, experience, and availability are all aspects to consider when looking for a clinician for you or your family. When deciding to seek out psychotherapy support, people are propelled by intolerable feelings of anxiety, anger, loneliness and depression, or concerned about uncomfortable relationships with family, friends, or work, or are emerging from stressful situations, such as the loss of a job, a divorce, or life changes.
