A professional home for members of the Chicago psychoanalytic community
I received a Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Biola University, an APA-accredited institution in Los Angeles County, CA. I have previously served as an active duty psychologist in the U.S. Navy, which has greatly influenced my clinical and research interests involving men and masculinity. Men’s issues have since become a focus of my private practice.
In addition to clinical practice, I am an adjunct professor at Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science in the graduate psychology department.
My approach to psychotherapy is rooted in a relational attachment perspective, which focuses on understanding the impact of our earliest relationships. These early experiences lay a foundation for how we process emotions, seek relationships, and become stuck in patterns of behavior. It is an honor to journey with clients as they gain insight and create lasting change through therapy.
