I am a psychologist, father, husband, poet, athlete, and lover of truth. I believe that too few clients know what makes a psychologist good enough to make a difference. I am a humble, intelligent, insightful, and directive therapist who understands both sides of the couch and gives 100% to each patient. I am trained as a scholar in cognitive-behavioral sciences, and I have specialties in child-loss, depression, and addiction. I meld cognitive behavioral psychology with the rich, non-judgmental zen of Buddhist beliefs. I am the father of Alessandra LoConte (1993-2015), and I help other bereaved parents restore balance after trauma.
