More Info About My Practice

Music and Creativity are a big part of my life. I worked professionally as a bassist and background singer for Don McLean, and had over 25 years as a full time recording musician before becoming a therapist. I have found that the Human imagination is often at the center of so-called "mental illnesses," and I work with people to discover a positive use for their inherent creativity.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

Every person who comes into my office brings with them new perceptions and insights about life that I find profound. I love talking with and learning from them, and sharing stories, ideas, and realizations that help everyone experience their true selves.
