I've trained in ACT therapy by attending workshops, conferences, and personal practice. By incorporating ACT into my approach to therapy, I offer an evidence-based, mindfulness set of skills that help my clients develop psychological flexibility--an important tool to have throughout life. ACT skills are also much simpler to transfer outside of the therapy room in a way that my clients can practice between sessions. The approach is light and optimistic.

As someone who worked in technology for decades prior to being a therapist, I have a keen understanding of too much Internet use and the problems it can create.

As a male therapist, I understand most of the issues that pertain to being a man. Most of my clients are male and include gay, straight, and queer sexual orientations.
I have worked with many clients in helping them with their panic attacks. We will explore the underlying feelings that are the source of the panic as well as develop useful skills in dealing with them.
