       Having helped many men and women during my 30 years of experience, I am honored that 
       people come to share and trust me with their personal stories.  Each person's life unfolds in a 
       unique way, and so no two stories are the same.  As I  learn more about you and your story, 
       I understand how and why you struggle today, and I can help you.

       I believe that good therapy should accomplish three things.  First, therapy should help to ease 
       your emotional burdens and provide some relief from feeling alone.  Second, good therapy 
       should teach you how and why you are vulnerable to the challenges of life.  And third, 
       therapy should help you become more aware of your personal psychological landscape, 
       thereby allowing you to achieve more fulfilling relationships and a more satisfying life.  

       People who receive good therapy are better able to put their lives back on the right track.
       And people who receive good therapy develop a greater understanding and mastery 
       over their emotions.  One of the most gratifying aspects of good therapy is watching how 
       people gradually become more confident about their future.  And with greater control 
       over your life and increased confidence about the future, you are better able to live your 
       life with satisfaction, optimism, and love.   

       As a relationship specialist, I've helped people of all ages and at all stages of a relationship; 
       single, married, divorced, friends, lovers, and the "I don't know what I am."  I will help 
       you improve whatever relationship has caused you difficulty, including the one you have 
       with yourself.

       I consider myself to be a very lucky man to have found a profession that gives me such 
       feelings of satisfaction and meaning, and the knowledge that, in addition to being very good 
       at what I do, I help a lot of very nice people.   

       As much as I enjoy and take my work seriously, I also include a bit of humor in my approach 
       to working with others, as I believe it is essential for surviving and thriving in today's world. 

       Please see my other pages for more information.  Then give me a call so we can talk about it.
       Thank you for visiting.
