Guiding You To Living and Loving with All of Your Heart

We all wear many hats. And so do I. Along with being a relational psychologist and sex therapist, I'm a healer dealer, a sweaty CrossFit junkie, a life long-learner, a retired English teacher and lover of literature. I'm a long-term joy and pleasure seeker, a rock climber and outdoor adventurer, a yoga teacher, a deep-diver (and SCUBA certified!), a world citizen, and I enjoy a nice, steaming cup of coffee in the morning.

Voyage LA reached out to connect and I shared more of my story. Click below to read the article.

More than that though, I'm a human being (doing) his best to spread love and authentic connection in the world. I'm a risk-taker and courageous conversation starter. I lead with my heart and use my mind to direct the journey. Not the other way around. I've had to learn to get out of my head as a way of living, and feel what's happening with my heart and body. Our body and being able to feel it is one of our most instinctual assets AND allows us to really feel another.  

Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise.

Every one of us has the capacity to create the life we desire.  Some of my specialties include:
A Healthier, Happier You

“Our wounds are often the openings into the best and most beautiful part of us.”

― David Richo
Create Connection

“We waste time looking for the perfect lover, instead of creating the perfect love.”

―Tom Robbins
Recover from Your Past

"The best way out is always through."

―Robert Frost

"Every new day is a chance to change your life."


Although I taught middle and high school for 15 years, my students schooled me on how to really listen with empathy. I don't mean the, "OK, I'll have to think about it and let's move on" kind of listening. I mean the "Wait, let's slow down so I can understand you" kind of listening.

After graduating with my Bachelor's degree in Psychology, I worked for 2 years at residential treatment center for abused and neglected boys aged 5 to 18. This is where my interest in leading boys into manhood started.

connection to others matters.

Even though I've branched out and have lived in California for over 20 years, my roots are still small town, where connection to others matters.

I've lived overseas and traveled to over 20 countries around the world: Trekked to Everest Base Camp, Safaried in Kenya with the Masai Mara, Scuba dived the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, Backpacked in Thailand, toured the Italian coast with my lover, and so much more. Life is not to be lived in the library, but experienced with others.
"I respect all people, value diversity and am committed to treating
my patients with tenderness and compassion at all times."
