Areas of Special Interest:
Men and masculinity, gender identity, racial/cultural identity, relationship concerns, psychological change processes, teaching and training

Theoretical Orientation:
Psychological researchers have found that disruptions to our relationships with others often cause more distress than other types of concerns. For this reason, I often take an interpersonal-process approach to therapy. This means that I may ask you questions about how your counseling-related concerns (stress, anxiety, depression, etc.) impact your current relationships, and we may even talk about how those concerns affect the counseling process. I have found this approach to therapy often leads clients to powerful insights about themselves and how they relate to others.
