Let's chat and see and make this relationship more personable. Life is crazy ride full of rollercoasters and not winning the lottery. Let's talk about the struggle of living to work and working to live; the perfect blend of tech savvy with unplugging. The perfect blend of a crisp fall day and air conditioning in the summer.

My Background and Approach
My style is person centered, solution focused, and highly collaborative. I tend to use a psychodynamic, strengths-based approach that enhances skills you already use, mixed with a variety of evidence-based therapeutic techniques, including CBT, DBT, family of origin, and feminist therapy. Rather than just one technique, I tailor my sessions your need.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I reside in the NYC region with my wife, cat (Madeline) and dogs (Lincoln and Vinnie). I absolutely love all animals and… I am even allergic to cats and dogs (I take 4 Zrytec and 4 Benadryl a day to manage). In line with my love of animals is that I have been vegetarian or vegan for over 20 years. Not so aligned… I hate chocolate.
My fondest personality characteristic is that I know how to hustle. I have worked up to 5 jobs at multiple points in my life and know the grit of life well. As a result, I have lived a lot of places across the nation but find the greatest sense of self when I am near water, nature, and a robust public transit system. As a result of my passion for nature, I am deeply committed in my personal and professional life to reducing my environmental impact and make tough decisions regularly to honor that choice.
My hobbies include being a long distance/endurance bicyclist and supporting local businesses.
