My primary client base consists of adolescents, young adults, families, and parents. I less frequently work directly with younger children. I find this work is best done as either parent-child work or parent support and training. For teens and young adults, I focus primarily on working with clients to develop strategies to manage the life events that they identify as interfering with important aspects of daily life. I use a strength and goal-based cognitive-behavioral framework to help develop concrete skills while providing a supportive and collaborative relationship with clients and families.

Asking for help can be difficult, but the relief it brings is worth it. I offer my clients 27 years of experience, knowledge, and skills. Along with my expertise, I bring attention, understanding, non-judgment, and compassion to the therapeutic relationship. My work is grounded in the Science of Attachment and Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). We are biologically wired for connection; it's an innate need. We thrive and feel content when this need is met; conversely, we suffer when it isn't. For me, the joy of this work is seeing the partners shift from feelings of anger, aloneness, or disappointment to tenderness and reconnection.

I have over 25 years experience helping people to find relief from anxiety and depression, reduce emotional reactivity, and resolve troublesome communication patterns. I work with individuals, families and adolescents. My approach to psychotherapy helps people attend to symptoms in the mind and body while increasing their ability to understand and communicate felt emotions. Somatic (body-based) techniques have been increasingly associated with more profound and timely results in therapeutic treatment. My work with clients brings focus to these three domains -- body, thought, and emotion -- in a supportive and compassionate way.

Through various techniques, my orientation is to help you access your spiritual essence, your true nature. Sourcing this essence will allow you to get in touch with the wounded parts of yourself with compassion and insight, rather than judgment and rejection. Seeing clearly with compassion into your habitual reactive patterns of thinking, feeling, and acting will expand your awareness and open you up to new possibilities of healing and living. The guiding question is: How can you more deeply and more tenderly embrace your human experience?

My clients are often younger adults (20's-40's) and include anyone with some desire to grow their understanding of their true selves, the purpose of and vision for their life, and how in daily/weekly practice to live a coherent and happier life (relationships, career, family...) towards these. While their longing & readiness for these is strongest, we work more intensively for some months (not years) before a break. My couples, also often 20's-40's, tend to hire me when they feel these longings together & often in phases of growth induced by stress/strain, opportunity (or both) in the relationship, like having a child or moving.

I believe everyone has an innate capacity for healing and growth, and the basic right to experience safety, connection, and joy. Most of us face times in life when we become stuck in pain, grief, disconnection, hopelessness, shame, confusion, worry, or other challenges that keep us from living our capacities fully. As a therapist my role is to support you in moving through these challenges in order to reconnect with what matters most to you. I offer a calm, grounded presence; deep curiosity, compassion, and respect; and a nonjudgmental, affirming space to explore your priorities at your pace.

As you navigate the many qualities of your life—the personal, relational, and professional; your goals and aspirations; the range of day-to-day experiences—you may at times encounter challenges that feel insurmountable. You might doubt your strength and resilience, feel stuck, and be uncertain of how to reconnect again with yourself, your pursuits, and those important to you. It is possible you feel lost and find that familiar efforts to cope are no longer effective, leaving you searching for other ways to manage.

My training as an Archetypal Pattern Analyst and in orientational approaches to dream work have consistently informed my work and my enjoyment of the psychotherapeutic and consulting process.

I believe that the most healing, transformative therapeutic work occurs when there is an authentic relationship between therapist and client. I provide an environment which fundamentally supports a feeling of safety by witnessing you where you are with curiosity and without judgment. For many people, feeling safe also involves being able to set their own pace in therapy.

Male Therapists

As a man, why might I want to see a male therapist?

There are many reasons a man might wish to work with a male therapist, including a degree of shared identity, which may help client and therapist connect to each other and allow for a more free-flowing discussion of issues that can be deeply personal. Some men may feel more comfortable talking to a male therapist about relationship concerns, the pressures they feel around the roles society and family place on men, career or job challenges, self-esteem, or anger problems. For some men who have not had a male role models in their lives, a good male therapist may be especially helpful.

How can I find out about a therapist’s experience treating men?

Individuals looking for treatment should feel comfortable directly asking a therapist about their history treating men overall and the issues that arise in therapy with men. A good therapist will be happy to discuss such matters as well as their educational background, approach to treatment, and how they think they can aid a prospective client. Prospective clients should also ask what the expectation is for treatment, and what the fee structure is, and whether and which insurance plans are accepted.

Can clients benefit from having a therapist of the same gender?

Therapy is not gender-specific, but some men as well as women feel more comfortable opening up about their experiences and history with a male therapist. An individual may feel that they have to explain less background information and be on the same page more quickly, particularly when discussing gender-specific challenges, in the case of male clients. Some women have prior negative experiences with women that predispose them to prefer working with a male in therapy. That said, a good clinician can transcend most if not all gender concerns. Ultimately, the most important factor in therapy is the connection and trust the client is able to build with the practitioner.

Would a male therapist have specific training in treating men?

Generally, no. There are no certifications for treating men specifically, but there are continuing education classes that therapists may take that focus on treating men as a group. There are many therapists who focus on men and male issues in their treatment and therefore have experience and expertise in this domain.
