I have a concentration of clients among college age students, and young adults. I specialize in eating disorders, and related issues. I also have a strong background in the performing arts, and see a significant number of creative clients. For twelve years I worked in a college counseling center. This has afforded me the opportunity to work with students who struggle with the concerns of people in their late teens, early twenties: depression; anxiety; ADD; OCD; substance abuse (as well as the more common issues surrounding living away from home, roommates, academic rigor, awaking sexual identity, etc.)

It seems like you have tried everything and nothing seems to work or isn't long lasting. Young adulthood can be difficult; their personalities change and you fear that they might not overcome their challenges. Not only do I work with teens, but also adults who are experiencing life transitions, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, and family issues. It can be nerve-racking to reach out to a counselor because you want to ensure you find someone who you can truly connect with.

*Not currently accepting new clients* I am so curious about the world around us and how it impacts you. Let’s explore together why you do the things you do, what values and expectations you learned that continue to impact you, and overall strive to identify the systems that impact you and your family. I take this approach because we so often blame ourselves, for you know, everything, which leads us to hold ourselves accountable for things we did not cause. This often creates painful feelings and actions that we have trouble processing and changing. It doesn’t have to be this way.

Integrating my training as a clinical psychologist and psychoanalyst with three decades of coaching and playing competitive soccer, I developed a unique style of integrating my passion for athleticism and team into my psychotherapy and coaching practice. The majority of my practice focuses on adolescent and young adult men who struggle with the transformation into productive, successful leaders. I refer to this population as the "Lost Generation of Boys". While the quest for understanding the past is important to the process, achieving goals, identifying obstacles, considering options, and defining action steps is the essence of the work. "Trying" is understandable but "Doing" is essential!
