Practice Info
Therapy can benefit and help you improve many areas of your life. For example, having more confidence, managing depression, maintaining your sense of self in personal or professional relationships. I can help you understanding the importance of boundaries and how to set them, for example by defining and distinguishing your needs from others. I’ve helped many men understand and improve issues around performance anxiety. I’ve also worked with couples to develop open, productive, intimate, communication, specifically the difficult, big picture things, like sex, marriage, having children, finances, or household responsibilities. But also more immediate, critical crisis, infidelity, separation, or divorce, developing and improving co-parent’s relationship.

As a therapist I don’t see your problems as necessarily negative, but working examples for us to recognize your strengths and to develop the abilities to resolve what’s current a problem and apply to problems in the future.

I strive to be real, am informal, active, and collaborative. I seek to understand you by listening, asking questions, and and checking with you whether I am getting your point of view. I provide assistance, focused attention, a professional perspective, openness, enthusiasm, and encouragement. And where relevant and appropriate, real life examples, as well as humor.
Bio
I have been a counselor in a variety of settings since 1998, including elementary and middle schools; residential treatment with adults and children with severe emotional and psychological disabilities; and post-graduate psychotherapy internships that prepared me for private practice. In 2001, I began supervised private practice, and sole private practice in 2006, upon Licensure.


I consider psychotherapy with all of its theories and approaches, much like the old adage, “All roads lead to Rome.” Seen in this way, I am not limited to one particular approach, or fit individuals into a template, and able to collaborate with individuals or couples in the unique ways they need.
