My masters and doctoral education and clinical training is rooted in depth psychology, which includes both Jungian and psychoanalytic approaches.
I am enthusiastic to work with individuals and couples who are curious about themselves, want to cultivate insight, and are motivated to make changes. Through listening and tending to neuroses, compulsions and addictions, mood issues, interpersonal problems, creative blocks, dreams, spiritual experiences and synchronicities, disruptive psychological symptoms can not only be reduced, but understood for a more meaningful, tolerant, and enriching life.

I am Co-President of the International Forum for Psychoanalytic Education www.
I enjoy working with individuals and couples (17 or older) that are curious about themselves, reflective and who desire change. The therapeutic alliance or the relational 'good fit' stands out as the fundamental factor in effective treatment. I am interested in developmental issues in adults and addressing repetitive patterns that stand in the way of growth. In addition, I offer to those that are interested, an initial therapeutic assessment that can provide a good clinical baseline on presenting problems and current functioning to facilitate more effective treatment.

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.

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.

The experiences we move through in life are complex; the balance of thought, emotion, and sensation is delicate. Life experiences create a pattern that we will unconsciously replay, often leading to symptoms and suffering. In order to break an unhealthy pattern, we must first become aware of the traumas, influences, and beliefs that create this paradigm. Through self-awareness, we gain insight into our true nature, develop the ability to self-regulate, and become empowered to create a new lifestyle. True recovery is attaining and maintaining a lifestyle that emphasizes a positive relationship with yourself.

The wounds and scars of our childhood often cause us to repeat dysfunctional patterns in our attempt to heal. We don't repeat painful relationships out of masochism or familiarity; we repeat because we want a different outcome, one we believe will shift how we feel about ourselves and our past. As a psychoanalyst, I explore (not dwell on) early care-giving relationships, traumas, and other life events that shaped who you have become. As your emotional story is realized we use our therapy relationship, your current life, and ongoing awareness of your inner world to work through the stuck places and create a different future.

All of us are trying to get somewhere, to find meaning, love, and fulfillment, to make our hopes a reality. Yet sometimes no matter how hard we try, we can't change our lives in ways that we want. What we don't realize is that our very efforts to keep things together can actually keep us asleep to new horizons. Maybe this sounds familiar to you: You feel stuck in your drinking or drug use, your relationship, pornography, or other sexual behaviors that are causing problems you desperately want to wake up from.
