About Me

I’m a sensitive, compassionate, and experienced therapist who believes each person deserves and can create a happier and more fulfilling life.  I work with individuals and couples and have experience working with people of diverse backgrounds and issues. 

My particular areas of interest are:

Relationship Issues 

Anxiety & Depression


Stress Management

Emotional Healing



My work combines aspects of several therapies, which I tailor to the specific concerns and goals of each person or couple.  My post-clinical education includes extensive training with leading practitioners of Internal Family Systems (IFS), Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for couples and individuals, and Gestalt Therapy.  I also have training in Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and other approaches to healing trauma.

My spiritual and family life help ground my work.  I have participated in meditation and contemplative prayer groups and silent retreats since the early 1980s, and I lead such gatherings online and in churches and secular settings.  I am married and the father of two adult children.
