I was exposed to counseling and psychotherapy very early on in life. Due to a sister’s mental illness, social workers and psychologists were often in our home, and my family in their offices. At an early age, I understood that psychotherapy could be transformational. I saw it with own young eyes. 

This conviction has only picked up steam over the years. I am thrilled to be a psychotherapist because I believe in psychotherapy. It’s that simple. The power and simplicity of the therapeutic relationship—one person doing his very best to help another—takes my breath away at times. 

Most people come to therapy in search of a solution to a particular problem, and therapy works very well for that. But often these same people discover that therapy can add texture and dimension and meaning to their lives. This has profound implications, not only in times of trouble but also in our day-to-day experience, in how we live our lives from moment to moment. 

If the time has come for some psychotherapy in your life, I welcome you. I look forward to the privilege of meeting and getting to know you. And I am already excited about the journey on which you are about to embark. 

Whether you are interested in short term symptom relief or in-depth exploration of long-held patterns, I will help you to create lasting change through information, insight, support, and the opportunity to deepen your understanding of yourself. I look forward to sharing the journey with you!
