My Approach to Helping

My belief is that you have within yourself the means to get out of whatever difficult place you happen to be in. This is not feel-good propaganda; it’s something I’ve witnessed regularly in my practice. My job is to help you gain access to the resources you already have, so you can grow into the person you want to be. Outside of the sessions we have together, I wonder how you are doing, how you are feeling, whether a recent discovery might be helping or disturbing to you. I get excited at your victories. I want you to understand that no matter what problems you face, you’ll be coming on board not just as a patient but as a fellow traveler through life.

What to expect.

Generally, the first thing I ask prospective patients is, “Tell me a little about yourself and the troubles you are having.” Effective therapy happens in an atmosphere of security and mutual trust. That’s not something that can be created all at once, but the first session is a good opportunity to lay the groundwork. We’ll talk about what you hope to get out of therapy, how the process works, and you’ll be able to ask anything you want to know about me, my background and my approach to the work. What you tell me about yourself and the issues you face will be entirely up to you. During this and all future sessions, you’ll be the one setting the pace.

More Info About My Practice

I draw on a number of schools of thinking, including existential, interpersonal, client-centered, cognitive and humanistic.

I have particular experience in ADHD (having lived and effectively coped with it for the better part of my life). I work with children and adults to help them develop techniques to manage their everyday lives, as well as overcome the psychological baggage that living with the condition can create.

Although straight, I have a substantial LGBTQ practice. Before going into private practice I was a group facilitator for a gay, bisexual and questioning support group and I started a psychotherapy group for HIV positive men.
