Throughout his education and career he has worked with individuals experiencing a wide range of difficulties including anxiety, mood, obsessive-compulsive, personality, and psychotic disorders, grief and loss, and addiction. He specializes in conducting psychoeducational, psychological, and neuropsychological assessments with the goal of providing insight into each individual’s unique set of strengths and skills, in order to maximize their potential for success.

He believes an open and nonjudgmental environment is essential to each individual’s ability to gain insight into themselves, their environments, and others. He views the psychotherapeutic process as a journey he travels with each client to foster acceptance and understanding, which will ultimately diminish the presence of anxiety, depression, and other troubling symptoms.
