About My Clients

You're exhausted and in pain from non-stop, repetitive arguments with your partner. You're smart and competent and you're a good problem-solver, but when it comes to your relationship, you're totally stuck. All you know is that it can't go on the way it is. Imagine what a relief it would be to feel grounded and at peace with yourself, confident that you have a path forward for yourself and your relationship. You can get there with some support.

My Background and Approach

Before I was a therapist, I was a software engineer (2000-2015). I’m science and technology minded, and I bring that outlook and culture to my therapy practice. I used to work on computer systems, and now I work on human systems. I’ve found that people are less deterministic but, to me, so much more fascinating. I love getting to know people and helping them. If you are a software professional, work in a STEM field, or simply consider yourself an analytical person, I speak your language. In your therapy session, for example, we might draw a block diagram on a whiteboard together to help you debug a relationship. That said, our time together will not be just another business meeting. I will respond to you with warmth, compassion, and empathy. And what if you are not a tech person, but you are partnered with one? I can help the two of you learn to understand each other better.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I’m a research geek: I use therapeutic techniques that have been studied and proven effective, and I love to learn about neurobiology. If you are interested in learning about the how and the why of your therapy, I will be happy to explain what motivates my approach, and to direct you to the books and research that back it. I’m also just a huge nerd with a quirky sense of humor. I will be delighted to incorporate concepts from gaming, science fiction, fantasy, pop culture, and literature into your therapy, if that happens to float your boat.

  • Agnosticism
