I am a psychotherapist in private practice in Los Angeles, CA. I have over 20 years of experience treating emotional issues. I am a certified psychoanalyst who practices from a Contemporary Relational model.
I am also the author of No More Mr. Nice Guy: The Hero's Journey - A Step-by-Step Guide to Becoming an Integrated Male.
I believe that at the heart of all mental health issues are feelings that are experienced as unbearable, so they are replaced by oversimplified approaches that don't work in the real world. The solution is to re-integrate your feelings, which will provide a greater sense of freedom, effectiveness, and aliveness.
To do so, I utilize emotionally oriented, deep focus psychotherapy that gets directly to the root of problems, rather than focusing on relieving short term symptoms which will only come back again. Our goal is treatment that lasts.
I am also a recovering Nice Guy. In addition to my personal work in this area, since 2012, I have been helping Nice Guys find their way to greater confidence and masculinity.
