I have extensive experience working with recovering individuals, adult children of alcoholics, and with men who struggle with depression and articulating their feelings.
As a psychotherapist, I have more than 30 years experience providing clients a safe, non-judgmental environment where issues can be explored and difficult feelings can be identified and expressed. I specialize in working with individuals and couples whose difficulties in early relationships have created corresponding difficulties in the present, including feeling locked into negative patterns of relating, depression, anxiety, and loneliness. I provide my clients the opportunity to learn new more effective ways of communicating and relating that in turn can lead to positive changes in their lives.

My practice is run by men for men across Maryland and DC. This is the place where you WILL be understood, supported, and find help. Men historically do not seek mental health services because of stigma, fear of not being understood, and limited numbers of male therapists who "get" them. If you're here, that means you're looking for help with the two most common diagnoses men have - anxiety and depression. But the behaviors are what typically send men to treatment such as: eating disorders; substance use; compulsive exercise; self-harm; sex addiction and infidelity; and isolation and avoidance of opportunities.

In 30 years of practice, my peers have consistently recognized me in WASHINGTONIAN's "Best" therapists. I love my job; I get to connect with patients deepest psyches, sharing intense joy and pain on the path to fuller lives. Therapy involves more openness, vulnerability, and self awareness than you imagined possible as you work through shame, guilt, trauma, naivete, passivity, dependencies, insecurity, etc. You take responsibility for bad habits, limitations and poor decisions. Consequently you take better care of yourself and your loved ones, achieve goals, resolve/manage stressors, grieve losses, and improve relationships, job performance and decision making.
