About me

Are you having thoughts and feelings that are self-critical, overwhelming, don’t mesh with your values, or are you procrastinating on your goals? Perhaps you and your partner are struggling in your relationship. I would be happy to help you. Sadness or anger may weigh us down. Trauma is often at the root of all of these, and I will honor your direction in how directly you choose to address the trauma.

I work with clients, both individuals and couples, who struggle with anxiety, depression, and trauma; some have family members with addictions or a severe mental illness. In gaining skill in identifying and evaluating thoughts that often go unnoticed and un-checked, you can improve how you think and how you feel.

The process can be hard, you are worth it, I am so glad you are reaching out!

I've worked with Mark for longer than any other therapist that I've tried and I am glad that I've been able to. Mark has been very helpful in working with me on re-framing patterns that I find myself getting caught in and I think he's good at finding a balance of listening to me and noticing when it would be good to ask questions or explore things further. I'd definitely recommend Mark as a therapist.

Mark does a great job of letting you lead and then gently guiding you towards resolutions. I'm really happy I've been working him him for a while now and he doesn't make me feel like I need to share any more or any less than I naturally do. I'd definitely recommend him.
