I utilize a number of therapeutic orientations (cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, Rogerian therapy) that are custom tailored to each client and their unique circumstances. 
I am a direct and rigorous therapist who will challenge and “push” you.  I would be a good match for clients looking for a strong therapist that will challenge them and “call them out”.  Having said that, please know that I am also compassionate, understanding and use a lot of humor in my work.  You can expect to laugh as a reprieve and respite from some of the intense moments in our work together. 
A primary area of focus will be the functionality and workability of your life.  All clinical jargon aside, people come to me because things are not working or not working as well as they like.  Insights, new ideas, therapeutic musings are great, but people come to therapy in order to make REAL CHANGE in their lives.  That is the bottom line.  We will address and work on the areas/aspects of your life that “aren’t working” and assist you in making the changes to have those areas/aspect “working” in a way that meets or exceeds your expectations.  We will focus on translating those insights into REAL and LASTING change in your life.



I am someone who is committed to making a difference in the world.  Being a therapist is one of the ways I do that.  I am passionate about working with people and assisting them in overcoming the barriers and breakdowns in their lives.  Through dealing with my own barriers and breakdowns, I have learned a lot about myself, and the nature of our shared humanity.  As a therapist, I bring everything I have learned, my formal training and education to the session. I will be relentless in our work together and will do whatever it takes (as long as it’s legal and ethical) to assist you in having breakthroughs in the areas of life that are important to you.

On a personal note…

I love Taco Truck tacos, and Star Wars, and working on cars.  I was classically trained in piano for many years and eventually made the choice to pursue a career in Psychology. 
This past summer I climbed Mt. Whitney, the tallest peak in the lower 48 states.  I like to take on things I don’t know I can accomplish, and this was that kind of summer. I also spent time in several of the National Parks with my family, visited a childhood home, and ate some delicious street food. I LOVE food. And travel. And therapy.
I went to school (a lot), and graduated from Muhlenberg College (BA Psychology), Notre Dame College (MA Counseling Psychology), and the Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology (Psy.D. Clinical Psychology).  I am a constant learner, always working to develop myself as a professional, a husband, a dad, and a human being.  I am passionate about living life and empowering people to live a life that they love.

I look forward to meeting and working with you.
