About me

I received my M.A. in Clinical Psychology, Marriage and Family Therapy Specialization in 2011. Since then, I have worked with children and adults both individually as well as with couples and families in Residential, Intensive Outpatient and Outpatient settings. I tailor my approach to what would be best for the client needs at the time. As a result, I have experience providing both brief and more solution focused therapy as well as therapy geared towards exploration and insight with the potential for deeper change. I believe the therapy journey is a collaborative one and that clients are most successful when they are both motivated by and patient with the therapeutic process. I balance active listening with interventions in order to allow the therapeutic relationship to develop in a positive manner that will allow the client to get the most out of the more tangible work. If you have questions about my experience with specific issues or areas of expertise, please feel free to ask me.

I enjoy his attention to detail. Which allows for him to pin point my areas of concern and that boggle me down. He is great!

I have been seeing Tim for roughly two weeks and in that time I have felt very heard. He has offered me a new (and objective) perspective to the issues I bring into our counseling sessions. I would recommend Tim for new patients.

Tim has given me some amazing insights to contemplate. He has offered me different ways of viewing my problems and approaching them. He has given me concrete tools to use to manage my stress and improve my depression. He is incredibly responsive and helpful. I'm blown away by how much I like this platform and how helpful Tim has been.
