I know firsthand how hard it can be to set aside society’s expectations of traditional masculinity and admit that it might be time to ask for help. As men, we are conditioned to try and solve life’s many complexities on our own, but the truth is reaching out for help shows immense strength, not weakness.

Perhaps you found my profile because you are considering therapy, and for that I applaud you. You have taken the first step toward healing and that is an incredible start. Maybe you still feel uncomfortable with the idea of therapy or you found me by accident. In that case, I sincerely look forward to answering your questions about how this could help improve your life as well. Either way, I am glad that you are here.

Straightforward, no nonsense approach to psychotherapy without a lot of psychobabble. Helping men deal with depression and anxiety even if they are experiencing outward success. Learning to deal with the inevitable pain and suffering of living when it is not something we normally share with those around us.

I’m an experienced therapist, LMFT#23779, of more than thirty years. I have my own practice in San Diego, CA, and also counsel online, and teach graduate behavioral science courses virtually. I work primarily with adults, individually or as couples. I’ve led numerous support groups for men, as well as working individually with alcohol and porn addiction. I’ve also assisted men with life transitions, loss, divorce, parenting, co-parenting, self-care, anger management, and domestic violence. I assist in helping men understand themselves and to be responsible and accountable for their choices and behaviors. Men also need an awareness of what a woman needs in a healthy relationship, and I work in this area as well.

In my practice as a therapist I use the research on what works to help my clients get the outcomes they want: better relationships, managed anxiety, less depression and more control over life. I do not limit our work into any single modality but blend a variety of techniques to tailor my approach for each individual. I draw influence from cognitive behavioral, humanistic and dynamic psychotherapy. Therapy is a place to develop and apply philosophy to get to a different place than we are able to get on our own. I’m excited to join you!

I HELP MILLENNIAL AND GEN X PROFESSIONALS CONSCIOUSLY GET WHAT THEY WANT (IN LIFE AND RELATIONSHIPS). Life is overwhelming. Between work, relationships, and technology calling for your attention at every moment, it’s extremely difficult to remain calm and grounded. We can lose our sense of purpose and passion.

Unlike other therapists who merely sit and listen, I take an active and engaged approach. You may find yourself in a guided meditation or a role-play exercise. There may be optional homework assignments. We’ll tune into exactly what you need. I’m here to support you to find your unique, confident voice.

As a sex therapist, couples counselor and psychotherapist, I help clients foster better relationships with themselves and their partners. I specialize in helping to negotiate desire discrepancy, low-sexual marriages, and navigate the impact of extra-marital relationships, including polyamory, consensual non-monogamy & infidelity.
Using practical, easy to implement tools, we will address and rectify what needs to shift, while emphasizing and solidifying what’s already working well. Together we will do the kind of work that produces positive, lasting change.

My practice can help you take stock of childhood messages you learned around toxic masculinity and heteronormativity so you can truly let go of what is no longer serving a purpose in your life. Depression, suicidal thoughts, self harming, addiction and going through tough periods in your relationships can be challenging. You don’t have to do it alone. Therapy can help you heal old relational trauma that is causing you distress, so you can be your best self at work, with friends and loved ones and in your intimate relationships.
