My passion is helping people achieve healthy relationships that honor, strengthen, and validate the people in them. I enjoy helping young men and women to build significant and open relationships on their way through dating and engagement as well as working with them on tools to address the conflict in their marriage. Often times unchecked anxiety leads to depression and I have many effective tools for people who struggle in attending to their anxiety in an effective way. I work with addictions of all kinds in a non shaming, caring, effective, and healing way.

Our practice focuses on sexual addiction - for the addict, the partner and the couple. If you struggle with sex addiction (including pornography) you need someone who understands this addiction and has a plan for your recovery. We do. If you are the partner of a sex addict, it's important to take care of yourself and seek counsel from a compassionate therapist who understands your situation. Both the addict and the betrayed partner get better faster with a highly trained, highly focused supportive therapy team. Men and women have regained and even improved relationships through their work with us.

I support men and women at all stages of life from teens to the elderly.
It can be difficult to gain the support we need to face life's many challenges. Many husbands and fathers are lonely, stressed, or confused about their relationships. The role of mother caring for children or daughter for an elderly parent can feel relentless. Perhaps you have pain you've pushed away for many years making you feel trapped or lost. Counseling can provide the opportunity to safely discuss and express the things we do not or cannot share in our day to day lives. I utilize an interpersonal and solutions focused approach to help unpack your struggles, process your pain, and build practical strategies to move forward.

Yes I have availability. No, I'm not in network with insurance. Your out of network benefits may cover. I'm very easy to talk to. Do you have trouble sleeping? Are you overwhelmed?

Since 1996, I have worked extensively with people struggling with Substance Use Disorders, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Depression, Anxiety, and Grief. I also take a secular approach to those who have experienced religious trauma. If you have struggled with any of these issues, I can definitely help.

The focus of my work is helping men and women who are struggling with intimacy disorders and compulsive sexual/relationship behaviors (also known as sex, porn or love addiction) that have had negative impacts on a person's relationships, overall emotional well being, health, family, career and other aspects of life. Struggles with sexuality can involve a great deal of pain, guilt and shame. If this is your experience, finding a professional who can provide a safe and non-judgemental space is crucial. In addition, I work with individuals who experience difficulties creating and maintaining intimate connections in relationships.

As one of the few male therapists, I focus on issues affecting men and boys - including bullying, anger management, and communication.
We're all faced with challenges, big and small. Sometimes these grow to overpower and overwhelm us. The adults, children, and families I work with say that I help them feel heard, valued, comfortable, and that I provide a safe place to explore options and pick the right solutions.

I am an experienced therapist having worked for 35 years with persons of all ages who have suffered complex loss and trauma including child abuse and neglect, divorce, domestic violence, family dysfunction, death, illness, unemployment, poverty, crime, and natural and man -made disasters of all kinds.
The vast majority people who seek therapy have suffered losses and traumas which have had very painful consequences for their lives. The best way to heal from those losses is to first have them accurately identified and then to be gradually helped to express one's thoughts and feelings about them to a supportive and compassionate listener. With such support one's experiences are validated as real and one begins to recognize one's strength and courage under the most challenging of circumstances. The opportunity to speak the truth about the painful facts of one's life to a supportive therapist is what heals.

As a man , I was always scared to go to a couples counselor because I was sure I was going to be the "bad guy" and was defensive.
Nearly 3 decades of experience helping couples and individuals overcome problems and begin to thrive again. I work with individuals, and couples struggling with everything from breaches in trust such as infidelity, resentments, lies, hiding financial issues, parenting stress, sexuality issues, non-traditional relationships, and the myriad of challenges that we all face. They don't have to be road blocks, it's what we do with them and how we use them to learn and grow to become a better partner and ally to each other and ourselves.

If you have ever dealt with anxiety, panic attacks, or fears of letting others down you have been fighting a battle that you don't need to continue to fight. We help individuals control their anxiety by teaching them techniques and tools that will allow them to regain control over their emotions. These are the same skills that professional athletes use to deal with the anxiety and the enormous amounts of pressure they deal with on a daily basis.

Check out our website for more details! I became a therapist because of a void that has persisted for decades. A void that allowed black and brown people to be left to find sometimes inadequate ways of dealing with real mental health issues. As you search you will find very few people that look like me that is in the profession of supporting mental health. This is unfortunate. Although my caseload is hugely diverse, what comforts my clients is I represent what in my field is lacking...a representative from a disenfranchised group of people helping to build up the individual, repairing relationships and making families whole.
