Take a moment to see how I can help you. What if you believed in yourself and could conquer everything holding you back? Therapy with me is a relationship in authenticity and hope. I believe therapists should listen, not just "nod". I believe therapists should be just as authentic as they ask of their clients. I am known for finding creative and adaptable strategies to handle life and curating the right blend of tech savvy with unplugging.
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 City of Chicago with my wife and cat (Madeline) and dog (Lincoln). 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). My wife and I also own a successful pet care business and have an extended “family” of fur kids we consider our own as well. In line with my love of animals is that I have been vegetarian for over 20 years. Not so aligned… I hate chocolate.
My hobbies include being a long distance/endurance bicyclist, supporting local businesses (especially coffee shops), and exploring cultural opportunities. In my free time, I am exploring Chicago with family and friends by public transit or bicycle. I love all animals, wearing all things camouflage, being outdoors, camping, and photographing urban life.
