Welcome to my practice. I have about 15 years of clinical experience and have been featured on NBC/KCAL/HLN as an expert psychologist. I work primarily with men who have hit “rock bottom” and would like help getting up. These men are often in crisis when we first meet. The issues I address are typically related to unhealthy sexual behaviors, infidelity, financial recklessness, gambling, drugs/alcohol, dishonesty/lying, and relational conflicts. My therapy approach is a combination of psychoanalytic, cognitive-behavioral, and the 12-Step recovery model. I also share insight from my own painful but redemptive recovery journey.

My ideal clients are adult victims of the repercussions of childhood trauma, war veterans, work stress issues, end of life, relational problems. I work especially well with men in retirement and those caught in the fight/ flight/ freeze response that shuts down their limbic system resulting in physical illness, anger/ dispare, dysfunctional memories, insomnia, dissociation and gross negative thinking. I focus particularly on working with men of all ages. Those who get caught in male stereotypes hide their pain and hurt resulting in loneliness, addiction especially men experiencing allenation from families, work in later life.

One of the most important things to work on in therapy is finding the root of the problem, where everything is steaming from. Sitting together, we will discover the root of what is causing an imbalance in your life. We will safely uncover masked emotions, explore your attachment style, any trauma you may have experienced and possible destructive behavioral patterns. Your current situation may be causing you to have high stress, sleepless nights, loss of focus, drinking more, and suicidal thoughts. You may also be coming home wanting to punch walls, scream, cry, and isolate because no one seems to understand.

Spouses- I'm happy to talk with your partner about couples therapy to make it less scary, help them feel heard, and help them get on board. Life can be painful. Therapy doesn't have to be. Many people see therapy as one-sided, with little opportunity for interaction or getting to experience each other as real people. I can promise you that I am as real as it gets! I want to help you achieve the solutions and life changes you are looking for while enjoying the process as much as possible. Calling a therapist can be intimidating, but I hope you will take a moment (and maybe a deep breath) to call and see how I can help.

Are you ready to embrace yourself, express your truth, and effectively and confidently communicate your wants, needs, and feelings? Do you want to feel comfortable in your own skin and move past self-doubt? On the surface, you put up a decent front and work hard to stay strong for the people around you, but in your heart, it feels fake. You tend to take care of others before yourself, but then you feel stuck in the same place. You feel like time is passing you by or maybe that you’re moving too quickly. You cant seem to connect with people on the same level and feel like they are missing out on the real you.

My theoretical approach pulls from Cognitive Behavioral Theory and many successful techniques (humanistic, strategic, psychodynamic, and solution focused), which allows me to personally tailor your therapy session based upon your unique needs in an eclectic and integrated approach to therapy. Therapist flexibility is a valuable tool in helping my clients gain a balanced perspective on the life issues they are facing. I view therapy as a collaborative, sharing experience and seek to help my clients feel safe, comfortable, and truly understood.

Is something missing or not right in your relationships, career or spiritual life? Is it keeping you from living fully in each moment? Are you now just reacting to life instead of creating life? If so it may comfort you to know that many people feel this way. Perhaps now you're at a crossroads and are ready to speak with a safe, experienced counselor. The good news is that there is hope when you reach out for help. The hope lies in the opportunity you give yourself to get better, and become more balanced and healthy.

My main way of helping people is through EMDR therapy. What EMDR therapy does is help your brain do what it is supposed to do -- heal itself. At times, the brain is unable to heal due to how some memories are stored in the body. Sometimes memories are stored in the exact same way they where felt. This could explain why some war veterans feel in danger when hearing fireworks on the 4th of July. What is happening is that their bodies are reacting to unprocessed memories of war, which are felt in the exact same way they were experienced. This is what is called an automatic response.
