In my therapy practice, I deeply understand the frustration and confusion that come with phrases like “I am so frustrated! What is going on in my mind?” If this resonates with you, know that you are not alone. My commitment is to create a safe, empathetic environment where your thoughts and feelings are not just heard, but deeply understood and validated.

 

Together, we will navigate your inner world, easing the overwhelming thoughts that can feel isolating and confining. In our sessions, whether in-person or online, we will explore your unique challenges in a warm, inviting atmosphere, gently guiding you towards a journey of personal growth and emotional resilience. Your struggles are real, and you matter immensely. If you’re ready to begin this transformative path, reach out to me. Our collaborative work will focus on creating a space where your voice leads the way, where we share the goal of your well-being and inner peace.

I specialize in working with men. I am 68 years old; I’ve been around the block a few times. I’m transparent and down to earth; I’ve struggled over the years with many of the same issues as my clients. I’m a Gabor Mate fan. I help men with trauma issues – relationships, anger management, struggles with porn and substances, etc. who we have become has been largely shaped by our caregivers. This past needs to be explored and understood.
