I specialize in working with gay men and gay couples, particularly when it comes to sexual issues and inhibitions.
Therapy works best when it helps us get in touch with things we are unaware of and which cause us discomfort. We are all motivated to avoid painful thoughts, feelings, and memories. That lack of awareness can sometimes cause pain or worry, or influence the way we behave and create difficulties in our personal and professional lives. Together we will discover and process these painful thoughts and feelings in a safe and supportive environment. This process can take a lot of work but can be transformative, often leading to a greater sense of personal choice and freedom.

I work with men and women ranging from adolescents to older adults facing issues including relationship struggles, identity exploration, self-esteem, anxiety, and depression.
My goal in therapy is to help you have more satisfying and effective relationships, find a greater sense of stability and empowerment, and discover a greater sense of meaning to your life. Though the work sometimes takes great courage, requires significant hope, commitment, and strength, in my experience it’s well worth it. From the start, I work towards establishing a trusting relationship, communicating clearly and collaborating with you to make sure you are getting what you need.

I work with heterosexuals, gay men , lesbians, bisexuals, and others, including those who choose not to define their sexuality.
My goal is to help individuals and couples recognize and value what's special in themselves, even sometimes finding their strengths in what appear to be weaknesses. I believe self-knowledge and self-acceptance are the best ways out of anxiety, depression, relationship impasses, and other ways of feeling stuck. Getting to know yourself doesn't have to mean looking for "problems." My aim is to help people know and accept all parts of themselves. We're all different and unique. I think learning to value our differences is one of the most helpful things we can do for ourselves.

Many men and women have sought long-term experiences with me that markedly improved their overall wellbeing, productivity, and success in relationships and work.
When you are physically ill you turn to your doctor, hoping they can help you feel better. Problems like depression, anxiety, impulsivity, uncontrollable anger, or low self-confidence can be as painful, if not more so, than physical illness; they can also create serious relationship and work difficulties. I have over 25 years of experience and I have helped many adults, adolescents, and couples who had received limited or no benefit from previous therapists, other doctors, or medications. I work well with people who are skeptical of, or intimidated by, talk therapy.

All too often relationships end as a result of one (or both) partners using a pattern of controlling behaviors which can escalate into abuse. Although typically attributed to men , these behaviors can also be seen in women and adolescents. Controlling behaviors may take the form of aggression, physical/verbal abuse or intimidation. A cycle develops with the controller continually seeking to change their partner's "sense of self ", whereas the victim may resist and/or display passive aggressive behaviors..

I have a particular focus on helping men struggling with confidence and assertiveness.
Wouldn't it be great if your therapist didn't just listen to you, but helped YOU listen to yourself? You know, that Self that gets lost among all your responsibilities and commitments and social media and stress and all the things you tell yourself...all that stuff that makes you feel fragmented and overwhelmed. I love helping people discover themselves amidst the noise of life. Understanding yourself is the key to getting "unstuck" and moving towards success, healing, and growth.

I have 40 years experience, and am deeply committed to, treating adults between 25 and 65 years old. Men and women suffering from confusion, anxiety and depression as they struggle to realize their potential – in their professional, sexual and love life. The goal of my work with patients is to understand their personal complexity so that new and constructive patterns of living can be obtained. Most importantly, the working through process of psychoanalytic treatment leads to the development of a strong, creative self and a freeing up of one’s potential and direction going forward.
