Life is challenging. We are expected to manage relationships, work, sickness, finances, and other stresses. Many of us come to experience significant anxiety, shame, anger, or depression in coping with the world. Whether you are facing an immediate crisis or longstanding concern, psychotherapy can help. With over 25 years of experience, I have assisted people in developing more effective ways of living. My therapeutic approach is informed by current neuroscience research, contemporary relational psychoanalytic thinking, phenomenology, and child development research.

Hello and thanks for looking up my profile. I am a licensed psychologist, a professor of psychology, and a frequent speaker....I am both a clinician and an academic. I am strongly psychodynamically oriented, influenced by both psychoanalytic (in the intersubjective tradition) and Jungian styles. I work well with articulate, curious, and thoughtful people who take their internal lives seriously...or who want to learn to do so. Good therapy with high functioning people is often more about surrendering and unlearning than "trying to change." I encourage moral courage, self-expression and meaning-making.

I offer once-a-week psychotherapy and psychoanalytic psychotherapy (increased frequency of sessions) for those seeking a more in-depth therapy experience.
People seek therapy when they feel something is just off, when life feels overwhelming, or the same patterns and self-judgments play out again and again. People seek me out when anxiety and depression, relationship issues, family issues (current or past) and work stress feel like too much. I enjoy working with young adults, couples, academics, and other university professionaIs. I also have extensive experience with Men's Issues and Therapists-in-Training. I view my role as providing a space where you can find and express your voice, work through difficult thoughts and feelings, and develop insight and greater self-acceptance.

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.

In my experience, psychoanalytic psychotherapy has proven to be one of the best treatments for obtaining long-lasting results and consistent life changes that one desires.
Are you feeling overwhelmed, anxious, or stuck? Do you find yourself repeating negative patterns? Do you want to make positive changes within yourself and your relationships? I believe that therapy is a collaborative process in which we together determine what you need. Years of experience contribute to my ability to create a safe space that will encourage deep exploration into understanding your emotional concerns. Often after completing the therapeutic process, many come to discover that they have more choices in their lives and report feeling more optimistic and alive.

This becomes a partnership. I am committed to helping you out of the darkness and into the light again. My training offers a wide variety of ways to achieve this task.

As a psychologist in training, I find myself fascinated by how our minds work. Most people spend the day getting tangled up in web after web of emotion and thought. Some people wind up feeling hijacked by their feelings or regularly trapped in an all too familiar cognitive rut. My approach to therapy (psychodynamic) is focused on helping people recognize these patterns as well as learning what it will take to liberate themselves from them. In a nutshell, I believe everyone can benefit from therapy. After all, everyone has something to work on.
