My style is casual and egalitarian. I see us as equals working together to improve the quality of your experience of being alive. In my lucid moments, I am powerfully aware that the causes of our suffering are not our circumstances, but rather how we perceive them and relate to them. Fortunately, these are things we CAN change. Thus my aim as a therapist is to help you change your moment-to-moment a p p r o a c h to being alive, regardless of circumstance. I find that if we truly change our WAY of showing up in the world, our circumstances tend to naturally change along with us.
I aim to keep you focused on what you are experiencing RiGHT NOW - which is often the very stuff that we are tempted to habitually resist or avoid. I see myself as a coach for helping you become stronger at being courageously honest & PRESENT to yourself and to life. (BTW, I am also now offering ketamine-assisted psychotherapy informed by the PRATI model.)
I maintain a spiritual (not religious) approach to life. I am critical of our society's general tendency to lull us into avoiding ourselves and our deeper feelings through addictions, "entertainment," materialism, etc. I see good therapy, in part, as one antidote to the madness of our time. (BTW, I have several canine - and one feline -co-therapists.)

We are all suffering. My expertise is in helping humans (very much including myself) learn how to suffer less. This necessarily requires sufficient safety AND challenge in our therapeutic relationship, & a mutual & courageous commitment to authenticity & self-kindness (NOBODY becomes a better version of themselves through self-shaming & criticism). If we maintain these elements, therapy works.
