"I have helped individuals from all walks of life in treating virtually every kind of problem. I tend to be most effective in helping individuals aged 12 and above toward seeing themselves more clearly and positively while finding more effective and enjoyable approaches to living. This includes (but isn't limited to) treating mood disorders, relationship issues, and one's struggles to access personal joy/creative outlets. Clients often report that my approachable, humorous, "very human" style makes therapy a much more effective experience even when exploring difficult content."

"Safety, trust and encouragement are imperative ingredients to a successful therapeutic or coaching relationship. As a seasoned therapist and performance coach my ideal client is one who seeks a collaborative relationship and is eager to invest in greater self understanding and willingness to take action. Clients battling stress related issues that compromise performance in work, school, or intimate relationships are a good match. Transforming anxiety, despair and self doubt into courage, inspiration and confidence is my strength. I'm comfortable addressing thoughts that disempower or emotions that are frightening. I believe positivity and curiosity can trump pessimism and criticalness to fuel personal growth."
