Every day I work with people who are overcoming their anxiety, depression, and relationship conflicts to find increased happiness, excitement and meaning in their lives.

What is it costing you to be withdrawn, avoidant, stuck, in conflict with your partner or co-workers, or disconnected? A large body of research shows that 8 or 9 out of 10 people are helped by therapy.

If you feel hopeless or unsupported, or you feel depressed or anxious...or if your husband or wife or partner isn't willing to talk about problems; I offer professional, supportive, empathic, and good-humored help, developed through many years of experience and based the most current science. I find it helps people most if we work in a down-to-earth, authentic and spontaneous manner.

I help couples with low to high conflict, including infidelity, who may want to save--or simply improve--their relationship. I also have extensive experience and training in treating anxiety, panic, stress, anger and depression. I take satisfaction in successful outcomes with clients who believed therapy could never help.

More Info About My Practice

In addition to my private practice, I supervise the clinical work of doctoral students and teach at The Wright Institute, where I am currently leading a study of the interaction of masculinity and shame. I have also done original research on beneficial therapist spontaneity, and I consider spontaneous, authentic relationships to be the heart of the psychotherapy and coaching process. I've spent many years studying cognitive-behavioral, relational psychoanalytic, and a number of different humanistic approaches, and I specialize in anxiety, depression and relationship difficulties.

I've worked in a number of settings over the years. The psychological breakthroughs of the 60s and 70s were formative for me, when a myriad of approaches to personal growth were explored. My work has been deeply informed by the men's movement of the 80s and 90s, and I have a special interest in helping men develop self-awareness and communication skills.

In addition to my private practice, I have provided therapy in outpatient clinics, a drug treatment program, a university counseling center and an inner city school. I now very happily devote my time to my private therapy practice and my highly satisfying work with my students.

Before becoming a psychologist and Certified Positive Psychology Coach, I worked for twenty years in the corporate arena: I was the CEO of a technology consulting firm, consulting to leaders in a number of different business environments, including healthcare, manufacturing, software development and telecommunications.
