I'm passionate about helping people change their lives.
I work with individuals and couples struggling with relationship problems. Creating harmony in relationship is at the heart of who I am.
I also have specialized training working with personality disorders, a difficult to treat, rigid, and maladaptive way of thinking and behaving. As a result, I'm well prepared to work with a broad array of challenges.
Finally, I ended a successful 20+ year business career to become a therapist, which gives me a unique perspective for working with executives and managers struggling with various challenges. I am also trained and currently work as an executive coach (Torch).

I am a board member of the Existential-Humanistic Institute, the flagship training organization in America for Existential-Humanistic theory and practice.
I have been researching and writing for over a decade on the psychological and emotional underpinnings of relational conflict. My work on conflict has been published in the Journal of Humanistic Psychology. I am likewise a periodic online contributor, as well as an editor of a book that addresses the subject.
