I enjoy the process of therapy and love hearing the unique stories of each individual I meet. It is my hope that as we work together we can help you gain a richer understanding of yourself and the world around you, connect more deeply with the people that you love, develop a greater sense of meaning and purpose in your life, and feel safe and comfortable just being you. It is an honor for me to go there with you. My approach to therapy is inclusive of all races, beliefs, orientations and identities.
I am passionate about being part of my clients’ healing process and have extensive experience in working with adolescents and their families. Besides doing one-on-one sessions with the youth, I love working with their families so that together we can strengthen teens’ confidence and resilience as they face emotional, mental, social, and behavioral challenges.
My clinical experience has emphasized treating anxiety disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder, depression, addiction (including compulsive sexual behavior), personality disorders, Autism Spectrum Disorder, attachment disorders, and relational problems, among others.
In my spare time I find myself rock climbing, playing a good slow game of chess, or hitting the road with my wife and kids to discover the next crazy adventure.
