    My Approach to Helping

    I believe that people naturally have competitive instincts and drives, and using these evolutionary-based approaches, we come into conflict in our relationships in modern interactions. We compete with those whom we love, and become obsessed with a desire to “win” in these arguments, while at the same time we “lose” the very nature of these relationships. I help people find ways to externalize their competitive instincts and repair the collective team approach with loved ones to ascertain healthy team roles for all participants for a healthy competitive approach to novel situations.

    More Info About My Practice

    I am currently a in-network provider for OptumUBH Plans, Oxford and Community Plan,and I am able to offer a reasonable fee to help all family members heal wounds collectively. As a result, I typically offer more brief therapy than many other therapeutic models, and more holistic changes to how families interact.

    What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

    I love helping people. I love watching those families who are so entrenched in problems turn their lives around in a miraculously short period of time, especially when considering how long some of these issues have been in existence before I enter into the story of someone’s life. I feel so gratified and honored to have a role in helping people find ways to live happier and healthier lives with the people they care so much about. It is one of the main reasons I have developed the theoretical model that I have. Competition is not just about playing by some arbitrary set of rules. It is about PASSION. It is a deeply emotional response to those we love, and the expression of that connection is truly a miracle to behold. It is the best part of humanity at its core.

    Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

    I hold every client and potential client in the highest esteem. It takes an incredible amount of courage and bravery to contact a complete stranger, and ask for help. As I see in so many great teams in history, it is essentially this aspect which drives those who succeed. I view the courage to act as a unit as a strength, not a weakness. A stigma for those who seek help is antiquated and unrealistic in today’s world. We are united in so many ways as a culture and as a society, and it is only natural to seek added involvement and attachment with people.
