My Ideal Client

*I am currently taking new clients.* Are you struggling with communication in your intimate relationships, feeling isolated as you age, coping with a difficult breakup, transitioning roles in careers or phases of life, or experiencing grief from a loss? As a licensed psychologist, I work with adults across the lifespan, focusing on the "here-and-now" to help clients make build more effective and rewarding relationships, develop insight, and break through internal and external barriers.

My Approach to Helping

I aim for an environment of support, compassion, and challenge. I specialize in processing grief and loss, men’s issues and masculinities, relationship distress, immigration/minority stress, building self-compassion, and transitions (e.g., job loss, career change, or retirement) through collaborative approaches. I predominantly use interpersonal, relational, and dynamic therapies to help clients reach their goals.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Therapy can help us make real, meaningful, lasting changes. And it takes courage to start. I'd be happy to talk about my services with you in greater detail. I encourage you to visit my website to schedule a free, 15-minute initial phone appointment.
