(Juris, Doctor, LMFT)

About Me

In addition to being a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I am also an Attorney with over 20 years experience in legal practice. My experience as a lawyer provides an additional dimension to my work as a therapist. I am comfortable working with intimate personal and relational dynamics to achieve resolution and change. The ability to focus on your strengths, and your concerns, is the key to promoting growth.

Seeking therapy is an important step on your journey to promoting healthy change and positive growth in your life. You are many things, and take on many roles in your life. I believe positive change does not occur from an outside source, but comes from your own strength and resilience, as well as a better understanding of who you are. My role is to guide and challenge you on your journey of reconnecting to your own potential and power so you can achieve change in yourself and your life.

Whatever the reason that brings you to therapy, including sensitive matters such as LGBTQ issues or romantic/sexual concerns, your session should be a place where you, and your loved ones, can address these topics in an honest, respectful and nurturing way, free from judgment or shame.

Written by C.H. on Jul 21, 2021 after counseling with Tony for 5 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, lgbt, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

I’ve been working with Tony for about 6 months now. I have found him to be patient, kind and easy to talk to.
These past few months I had been through one of the hardest times of my life. My level of stress and anxiety had been at its highest compounded with relationship issues that when I when I met Tony I was struggling. He helped me navigate through my relationship, process the issues and come out stronger then when I met him. Every session we’d pick right up where we left off. He doesn’t miss a moment. I’d highly recommend working with him.

It’s not always easy finding someone that you connect with. I have enjoyed working with Tony over the last six months. He has a way of putting you at ease while addressing the issues straight on. He is patient and a good listener and always seems to find the right issues to delve into further. I now know more about myself than I ever have. We discuss things one week and we always pick right back up where we were without having to revisit the backstory on how we got there. Tony has given me good tools and suggestions on dealing with my issues. I feel that I am better equipped to handle life’s challenges in a more positive and supportive way. I would recommend Tony to anyone who needs help bettering themselves.

Working with Tony has been a great pleasure. He has shown the great ability to meet me where I am in any situation I bring to him. His ability to illustrate and explain concepts and therapy fundamentals in a way that I can understand has benefited me greatly during my work with him. Tony’s passion and understanding of the various modalities he is well versed in elevates each session. I can confidently say I leave each session with validation, something to work on, and a new tool further implement my growth. Tony is very empathetic, and he pushes me towards growth with gently challenging my own perceptions and mindsets. I have worked with many therapists in my journey in healing and self-discovery. Tony really has been a graceful guide through the sensitive and moments of vulnerability.

Written by T.O. on Mar 29, 2021 after counseling with Tony for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, self esteem, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

I have been meeting with Tony for a couple months now and I think he’s great! I met him when I was going through a lot of life changes and he has been very supportive of me while also pushing me to be the best and most successful version of myself. I feel very comfortable telling Tony anything without fear of judgement and I can be my true self around him which I think is essential for successful therapy. I would 100% recommend Tony as a therapist.

Written by A.L. on Mar 19, 2021 after counseling with Tony for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, sleeping disorders, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

I have tried therapy multiple times in the past and I never felt comfortable and would end up quitting shortly after, but Tony is great! There is no pressure, just 100% acceptance for where you are and what you are feeling. Tony’s authenticity resonates in his therapeutic approach. I know he is being honest and authentic with me and that makes it so much easier to be honest and open with him. On top of that he is kind, caring, funny, and incredibly knowledgeable! I appreciate that he infuses classical therapeutic techniques with his life experience. I would recommend Tony to anyone who wants a down to earth therapist that is easy to talk to. I’m very thankful for our session each week!

Written by K.A. on Mar 12, 2021 after counseling with Tony for 9 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, self esteem, and coping with life changes

I highly recommend Tony as a great therapist. I’ve been working with him for almost a year. A very difficult transition in my life has brought me to therapy. Tony has been very helpful to me, sharing many good ideas & listening with true understanding. I am able to be honest with him about my life and struggles, which is a great relief. He is extremely insightful & has been very helpful to me. I am happy to recommend Tony.

Written by R.Y. on Mar 10, 2021 after counseling with Tony for 7 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and self esteem

I have had prior experience with different therapists for several years, but Tony is the first therapist that I felt has helped me the most, and has really made a difference. I began working with Tony about 7 months ago during a time when I started a new job in a new city (moved across country)-a daunting period for most people. Tony really took the time to get to know me, and tailor therapy to help me achieve my specific goals. He is always available and flexible with scheduling. Most importantly he has helped get me on the right track to finally find healing, and achieve more out of life without the obstacles that have held me back (a majority of them I had caused myself). I highly recommend Tony as a therapist and I am so glad we connected via Better Help!

Written by B.R. on Mar 09, 2021 after counseling with Tony for 8 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, sleeping disorders, self esteem, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

Tony and I have been working together regularly for almost a year now and I am glad that I was matched with him. He has a nice balance of great listening skills paired with technical understanding and advice from the field.

I've always left our sessions feeling better than when I've joined them, and often with "homework," or at least with something to think over until the next session. I am happy to recommend Tony to anyone who needs an an excellent therapist.

Written by R.U. on Mar 08, 2021 after counseling with Tony for 10 months on issues concerning relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

I’ve been working with Tony for almost a year and have had an incredibly positive experience. He took the time to unpackaged all that I brought with me at the start of our work together and has made the effort to understand each aspect of myself and my ultimate goals in my personal and married life. He is easy to talk to and does not judge. I have been able to be completely open with him and never feel uncomfortable about what I am sharing. He is also very honest and sees things from all perspectives, not trying to tell me what I want to hear but what he actually observed. I am grateful to have been matched with him and always look forward to our sessions!

Written by S.T. on Oct 27, 2020 after counseling with Tony for 6 months on issues concerning addictions

I worked with Tony weekly for about 6 months. Being both a therapist and lawyer, his competencies make him a valuable and unique resource. Highly recommended!
