My Background and Approach

Psychodynamically trained foundation with extensive Buddhist/Shamanistic/Energy/Yoga experience and training. I have an MSW in Clinical Social Work from an ivy League School and a PhD in Psycho Spiritual Studies from Venus Rising University.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As an out gay male who was a civil rights and HIV activist I honor and respect difference. I was raised catholic in Boston, 12 years of school along with seminary training. I began studying buddhism and yoga at 21 to rebel against my Irish Catholic repression when I witnessed the murder of a family member. I entered the mental health field to better understand the workings of the mind and specialize in PTSD and Parents who have lost children. I was a competitive runner who had to return to yoga and meditation after a knee injury. I became a yoga teacher over 15 years ago and a Shamanic Minister over 10 years ago. My life has formed my treatment approach.
