About me

When we want to change, developing emotional awareness helps the healing process. I have held space with my clients to discover this for 18 years using a variety of techniques from Motivational Interviewing and Cognitive Behavior Therapy to Dialectical Behavior Therapy. Sometimes who we need is a collaborator and coach and at other times someone to validate our experience and I will be this for you. I believe the quality of our working relationship is essential to the quality of your outcomes and we will make sure to incorporate this feedback.
Ultimately I would like you to say everything.
Many of the people I have worked with over the years have had experiences with substance use or feeling marginalized by how they identify. Together we will develop strategies towards resilience and steps toward change.

Talking to a friend who knows what they are talking about. Amazing guy with no judgement. Very lucky we got matched.

The day after my first session with Mark, my friends and family said I sounded like myself again for the first time in weeks. He has changed my life and I am so glad to continue working with him - he gives me so much hope for my future. I could not get through my trauma and grief without his understanding, compassion and willingness to challenge me outside of my comfort zone, while always meeting me where I am.

Mark has been phenomenal to work with. He is clearly gifted in his profession. He listens to me, lets me vent, and validates my concerns while also keeping me in check when necessary. He will be my therapist for a long time, I can already tell!
