Helping Men Discover Their Best Lives
Do you feel like you are constantly trying to please everyone, but end up feeling like you are not fully pleasing anyone, including yourself? Are you having problems finding the right work/life balance?
If you are like most of the men I treat, you’ve worked hard to get where you are in life. You’ve put a lot of thought and effort into your career and relationships. Now, people at home and at work are depending on you to put forth your best effort every day. However, you may feel like daily frustrations, worries and conflict are draining your energy and enthusiasm for life. There was probably a time when you felt like the life you envisioned was within your grasp. But now, when you do have time to slow down, you notice that you’re distracted and unable to relax. At the end of the day, you’re left feeling anxious, overwhelmed and stressed out – more and more distant from your loved ones and yourself.
Maybe you’ve tried to ignore these problems or conceal them from others. Perhaps you have tried talking to a close friend, exercising more or Googling ways to help yourself. Unfortunately, nothing seems to make a lasting difference.
The good news is you are not alone
My practice is different because I specialize in men’s counseling. Men’s emotional and physical health is not a sideline, but the focus of my practice and the locus of my expertise. I provide:
- Anxiety Treatment
- Anger Management
- Individual Relationship Therapy for Men
- Male Depression and Midlife Crisis Treatment
- Executive and Career Coaching
You Can Change Your Life
Men’s counseling and anxiety therapy can help you overcome these obstacles so you can discover your best life. By addressing the root sources of your distress, we can work together to tackle the self-defeating patterns that are holding you back. In addition to traditional psychotherapy, or “talk therapy,” I offer treatments that incorporate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Meditation and Anger Management techniques.
If you are struggling with career demands, I offer executive coaching strategies to help promote growth within yourself through greater self-knowledge. My methods can help you guard against job burnout and prioritize your work demands so that you can focus on what’s important. Many of my clients come away from coaching with promotions or new jobs better suited to their interests. If you are a CEO or executive, coaching offers a unique opportunity for you to talk confidentially about the isolating demands of being a leader. Executives come away with a clear idea of direction for their energies and their companies.
Many men considering therapy for the first time feel uncomfortable with the idea of talking about their thoughts and feelings with a therapist. They anticipate judgment and embarrassment. I offer an opportunity to look at your concerns in a completely private and confidential space, apart from the rest of your world, where you can go at your own pace. In 20 years of helping people, I’ve seen and heard a lot. I will approach your problems without criticism or judgment. If you’ve tried therapy in the past and didn’t feel helped or understood, you might find many differences in my approach. Most importantly, you and I will forge a collaborative connection and set goals we can meet together.
Whether you are a man looking for help with anxiety, relationships or career, I’d like to help. Let’s talk about how I can assist you in reconnecting with the life you've always wanted.

Are you a single man who is tired of searching for the right person by swiping through Tinder, attempting small talk at parties or spending your nights at bars? Maybe you’re straight and recently moved to the Bay Area for a job, and it seems like it’s impossible...
