As a licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT), I have a special interest in supporting parents and stepparents, parent-child relationships, multiracial families, couples experiencing sexual and intimacy issues, and people experiencing trauma, grief and loss, and oppression associated with racial, socioeconomic, and LGBTQIA+ identities.
It’s hard to be a person. Even when life is at its most joyful, our relationships, our pasts, and the constant presence of change can be overwhelming, confusing, or defeating. I’m here to help with that. Therapy is my second career. I chose this work because I believe everybody deserves nonjudgmental support, whether they are in crisis, preparing for change, or simply stuck. I have seen what can happen when pain has no witness. I have also experienced the transformations that can take place when hurt and struggle are seen, heard, and met with compassion, understanding, and perspective.

I specialize in working with adult individuals and couples who are seeking solutions for connection, intimacy, and overall satisfaction in their lives. My work focuses on areas of relationship dynamics, sexuality, life transitions, personal development, and emotional awareness. I love helping people grow, expand self-compassion, reduce shame, and live with more authenticity, lightness, and joy. Engaging in therapy can be challenging, requiring vulnerability and awkward moments. I guide clients though the process by creating a safe space to explore, sharing laughter, humor and the art of being human.

Therapy is a partnership that grows in an atmosphere of safety and acceptance. It allows us to rediscover the parts of ourselves we had to disown as children in order to keep our caregivers close; to learn new skills to handle grief and distress; to build healthier, more nurturing relationships; and to gain access to our own direct experience of the world, perhaps for the first time. I nurture this collaboration with clients by recognizing that each individual possesses the wisdom he or she needs, as well as the innate capacity to love, to connect, and to thrive.

After a sudden, traumatic death such as through suicide, death due to drug use, homicide or COVID, those bereaving are often left with both the heavy burden of grief, and images that may feel haunting and overwhelming. Other feelings, such as guilt, anger, and profound sorrow accompany other distressing experiences, including, feeling alone, increased agitation, depression and anxiety. When put together, these feelings can feel unbearable to hold alone.

I Am Accepting New Clients - I work with men on the internal issues that are showing up in their lives. When relationships fray, affairs or divorce happens, layoffs, depression, stress, anger or numbness rear their ugly heads - it can be time to stop and figure out what needs to be addressed. As a man - a father, a son, a husband, a brother, a friend myself - I am acutely aware of the internal worlds of men, and the external rules that often keep us from talking about what is going on inside.

I utilize all of my training, education, skills and life experience to help you to make the changes you wish to create. Not changing WHO you are, but HOW you are: how you show up in your relationships...how you talk to and relate to yourself...how you make skilled choices that will help get you what you want and where you want to be. I can't do the personal work for you, just as no one can do my own work for me, but I can absolutely help you to help yourself in powerful, lasting ways. I have many years of experience and a great deal of formal training that enables me to accompany you in your journey.

Is there a story you’re carrying about yourself, a situation, or relationship that’s causing heartache, pain, or frustration? Is it something you just can’t shake or feel stuck with? Stories hold power, whether they’re told to us, learned consciously, buried deep, or what we tell ourselves. They can be instructional, revealing, occasionally harmful, but filled with endless possibilities. When we are aware of our stories, we get to determine the next chapter. I want to hear your story.

For 25 years I worked with over 16,000 suicidal patients on the mental health unit of St. Francis Hospital with my office partner, Psychiatrist Dr. Sunida Bintasan, From observing their common patterns, I created an educational program (for persons with issues of deep despair, hopelessness, depression, feeling "LOST" & "TRAPPED" & "STUCK", and often with recurrent suicidal thinking) called Contextual-Conceptual Therapy (CCT). Combining expressive arts techniques, education, and therapy using "maps, models, & metaphors", it helps clients discover the roots of their deep despair, feeling trapped & lost, and/or suicidal thinking.

Someone in my family was asking me recently "What is the most important consideration when looking for a therapist? " The fit, the feel, the vibe you have with the therapist really is best way to decide if this is a good match. A good fit, you will work well together. We will work with the issues that you are currently experiencing, noticing the internal roots of conflict, and finding ways to make meaningful and purposeful shifts or changes in your life. Experiencing difficulties from depression, relationship endings, truama, abuse, addictions, let's talk. - My practice is typically full but can offer wait list for new consultations

My goal is to assist you in recognizing your inherent strengths that have been developed as a result of your unique experiences. Everyone comes to this moment with their own set of beliefs, values, morals, and expectations. You are stronger than you think. You are more capable than you think. Oftentimes individuals, couples, and families may not recognize their own resilience and their ability to break toxic cycles that may exist within relationships. Sometimes experiences can overwhelm us, and make us feel that we don’t know the way forward. The process of therapy is turning those overwhelming feelings into a road map.

My ideal client is someone who has an intention to change. During my 25 years as a practicing therapist I have encountered a wide range of issues. Having worked with a large number of clients to the point of solution, I have concluded that in the end, the core of helping people is to listen. Effective listening gives me a deep understanding of their current situation. I can then gently point them toward getting more of what they want. My experience and compassion have often proven to be crucial elements for our success. This is the work of my life.

You hope to ease your distress and experience healing, and ultimately, to enjoy satisfying, fulfilling relationships with others and with yourself. You seek the magic that comes from looking within and cultivating a relationship with your own rich inner world- a brave and vulnerable first step to finding wholeness, relief, and self-awareness. Depth psychotherapy is the process of turning inward and examining unconscious aspects of the self that have influenced you outside of your awareness, a practice that not only alleviates symptoms and suffering, but transforms unhealthy coping behaviors and problematic relationship patterns.

As human beings, we are prone to intense joy, deep sorrow and a wide spectrum of emotions in between. Therapy is a place to learn how to navigate these changing terrains of life. As a therapist, I will come alongside you to listen, reflect, speak to, and bear witness to your particular experiences in life. I believe many personal struggles are relational and that we experience healing through genuine connection with ourselves and others. I'm passionate about helping people move from a life of fear and feeling stuck to a life of freedom, feeling grounded, and developing a growing trust in yourself and others.

Hello. I am delighted that you are interested to know more about who I am as a soul mechanic. Life can be challenging, and trauma can derail us from becoming who we long to be.

I possess a powerful inherent belief that no one rises to low expectations, and I am committed to challenging negative self-talk, poor self images, diminished personal vision and accountability, and catastrophic thought processes.
