My Approach to Helping

I understand how difficult it might be to share some of the most private and personal parts of your life with someone who is initially a complete stranger, so I want you to know just how much I value the aspect of trust that I hope you and I might share. One of the more incredible things I consistently hear from my current and past clients is that I'm someone they are able to trust and confide in without any fear of judgment or shame.

My clients have ranged from professional athletes to those having difficulty performing daily activities, from high powered executives to those looking for work, from musicians and artists to those trying to find their passions, purpose, and meaning. Wherever you may find yourself on the journey of life I'm confident in finding a way to help you as every person is unique, and if I can't I won't hesitate to help you find someone who can. I hope you can see how passionate I am about my work and wanting to help others.

With my unique therapeutic skill set, a collaborative approach to working on problems with new perspectives, helping you develop new skills, along with applying the brain processing power of EMDR. I'm trained in EMDR therapy, Comprehensively Trained™ in DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy) and have been mentored by my many pioneers in the field. I know you deserve more, and it's my mission to help you live the life you've always been wanting.

More Info About My Practice

My oldest and first mentor since childhood is a Harvard Psychologist, he taught me the importance of therapy and having a therapist. That being said I've had many therapists throughout my life and the best therapists were always the ones I was able to relate to, who listened, and who cared. I'm not by anyway minimizing the importance of a great education, training, and technique, instead, I wish to stress the importance of finding someone that can believe in you, work for you, and care about you. It's with this level of trust and high empathic attunement that I believe to be at the bedrock of powerful progress and transformation, and I hope to offer this to you.
