Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Board Approved Supervisor (LCSW-S)

About Me: I’m a happily married guy in the “empty nest” stage of life. Our kids are nearby and do visit frequently, but they are busy creating their own fabulous adventures. That means we have more time for our adventures, which generally involve travel or food, or at the best of times, both!

In my clinical practice, I really enjoy partnering with people as they make their lives better through brief cognitive behavioral therapy. Life is sometimes hard and occasionally we all get stuck. I love the moment when clients find themselves freed from that “stuckness;” that moment when they can once again experience their authentic selves and are able to love themselves and others more fully.
