I work with both individuals and groups, and have particular interest in issues affecting men, survivors of religious oppression, trauma, addictions, grief and loss, and supporting gay men and lesbians in their quest for maximum fulfillment in their lives.
Freud is credited with stating that two things really matter in life: love and work. I help people find greater satisfaction with a) their relationships with themselves and others, and b) what they do to make meaning in their lives. I believe in the power of the therapeutic relationship to help you maximize your spiritual, physical, and emotional potential. Operating from an orientation which draws primarily on a combination of contemporary psychoanalytic, attachment, and neurobiological perspectives, I am fully committed to walking with you on your journey toward greater satisfaction and fulfillment.

I have been successful in the past with all manner of clients through many different settings – male, female, transgender, heterosexual, LGBTQ+, in inpatient, outpatient, technician, assessment, or even consulting settings. I also really enjoy working with teens and adolescents, since early brain-based interventions help everyone succeed even more in their lifetime. I find that my personality and style seem to fit best with clients who feel they are trapped in a negative routine, have no one with which to talk, or no way out of the situation from which they suffer.

Men have never lost the desire to explore. This desire frequently leads men to seek alternative ways to navigate the spinning world around them including their own potential. Chances are, if you’re exploring this website, you’re feeling a disconnect between the life you envision and what you’re actually experiencing. And you’ve realized this disconnect shows up in the form of emotional distress, up and down relationships, and/or doubt about where your life is taking you.

Later I focused on men, and substance use disorders. Problems can stem from using drugs as an unproductive coping skill to a deeper more physiologically based problem. Our first job together is to find what your specific problem looks like and then find a way forward that's suited to your needs.

Most men have not had another man with whom to discuss personal matters.
Most people who come to therapy are trying either to deal with a symptom-depression, anxiety, stress, etc.- or they are struggling with some relationship, or even struggling with oneself- one's own history, or a bad habit. Therapy always begins with your presenting problem. People develop strategies to deal with life, but sometimes what worked before isn't working anymore. A good therapist is always committed 100% to your best interest. Once I have earned your trust, it becomes easier to accept a new idea, a new approach, or a new strategy. Sometimes all it takes is a new perspective.

Something isn't working in your relationship. Maybe the conflict is leaving you hurt or hopeless. Or there's been an affair, and you can't get back to normal.

Life can be hard, painful, unfair, and even horrific. Once I was told, "therapy is conflict." What they meant was we are all in conflict; with other people, loved ones, and often ourselves. A therapist's job is to bear witness to that pain, to hold it, and with our assistance help our clients move through the pain, the conflict, and find peace. Over the last ten plus years, I have gained extensive experience providing counseling to adolescents, adults, couples, and military service men and women dealing with multiple issues including substance abuse, trauma/PTSD, grief/loss, depression, and anxiety.

I work with artists experiencing writer's block, men with relationship issues, and those who have experienced spiritual trauma.
At the foot of our beds sit two gremlins—fear and apathy. Whereas fear tells us to stay at home because life is too scary, the other says “why bother?” The key to therapy is to overcome these two gremlins so that we can show up to our own lives. Are we really living the lives that we want to live? Are we able to take the first step? ...And that first step is the hardest-- finding someone to trust with your most locked away thoughts. A collaborative, non-judgmental, and honest approach to counseling is the only way to an authentic connection.

I am deeply committed to helping men and women overcome addiction, heal trauma and thrive in the face of mood disorders.
We all just want to feel comfortable in our own skin. We want to live our lives feeling inspired, happy, and purposeful. Somewhere along the way we may have sought out external things to achieve this goal: drugs, alcohol, relationships, jobs, social circles, money, status, etc. These things work for a little while…until they don’t. We finally get to a place where we realize we need help turning inward. We become willing to examine our trauma and core wounds and heal from what is in the way of us emerging into our fullest selves. This is where transformation begins.
