In life, we often encounter challenges and painful experiences. With these challenges, you might have found yourself in a place of feeling stuck. Your familiar relational and emotional patterns of coping might not be as helpful as they previously were. Relationships might have become more difficult rather than life giving. As your therapist, my goal is to come alongside of you during this hard time in your life and guide you toward a place of peace and balance.

I specialize in three different types of clients – couples who love each other but are on thin ice, stressed-out executives who pay the price of success as well as accomplished gay men who feel like an imposter. As someone who has been through and overcame a fair amount in life, I have a great deal of empathy as well as a nifty toolbox for those who are ready to get off the merry-go-round. You may be trying to pick up the pieces after a betrayal, or just tired of arguing about the same old sh*t or wrestling with negative thoughts that hold you, hostage. I am ready to roll up my sleeves if you are and help you sort it all out.

Most of us search for a feeling of inner comfort and confidence in our work and relationships. The difficulties, pain, and sometimes confusion that arises in trying to meet emotional needs is frequently what leads to seeking help. I am a psychologist, marriage family therapist, and psychoanalyst with more than 30 years of experience treating adolescents, adults, and couples. My approach is to connect with my patients with understanding and new levels of insight. The deeper insight and feeling of being understood allows for inner change and confidence in the people that I treat.
