"I treat both women and men, and I'm known particularly to help men deal with their issues in early, middle, and later stages of adulthood. My approach rests on the belief that our ways of understanding and coping with the present may be limited by our previous experiences. By working together, we find new expanded ways to help you understand and cope more effectively."

"When seeking therapy, a client has gone beyond their friends and family to seek connection. Knowing how difficult it can be to reach out for help, as a psychologist I strive to create a space where anyone can speak and be heard, sit and be seen. What I have learned is that this work is about creating alliance, safety, and delving into our most difficult memories, even when it can be frightening and uncomfortable to do so. My goal is to be a clinician worthy of hearing your stories and creating meaningful relationships."

"As a depth psychotherapist, one of the things I do is help my clients know their unknown issues. I do this by creating a safe therapeutic environment in which to explore and bring repair to the past injuries and traumas holding my clients back from experiencing life and relationships in a full and meaningful way. I like to look at my client's dreams, artwork, and daily life experiences, to bring light and insight to blockages and barriers to their full experience and enjoyment of life. Such blockages can be past trauma, incorrect embedded beliefs, and ingrained thought patterns and habits."

"I work with professionals who want to overcome persistent behaviors, thoughts and emotions that inhibit their ability to live a life they love so that they have meaningful relationships, deeply fulfilling work and self-confidence. My approach is based on the belief that in order to benefit from therapy the therapeutic relationship must be grounded in direct communication, collaboration and compassion. You need someone to be real who will both challenge and care for you. My patients often reflect they are relieved to finally work with someone who engages in conversation and shares responsibility for the progress of each session."
