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.

Mark is undeniably one of the best therapists I have worked with. He is gentle yet provides incredible insight and has helped me to navigate through a difficult time in my life that for many may be relatively inconsequential. His incredible ability to listen and distill all I have to say into the key issues that need to be addressed had helped me tremendously. He clearly has a passion for therapy and a keen interest in helping people through his insight and deep knowledge of the human condition. Thank you Mark!

I’ve been working with Mark for a few months now, and I have to say he is the best therapist i’ve ever seen. After struggling to find a therapist that actually helps in the past, Mark has been nothing but helpful and exactly what I need in a therapist to thrive. Every session is so productive and he helps me bring a lot of suppressed things to light and fix them. I would highly recommend him and this platform to anyone I know.
