I use a cognitive-behavioral approach and have expertise in gay issues, men's' issues, HIV mental health, stress and anxiety treatment, relationship issues, and career concerns. I also have experience in treating most mental disorders affecting adults.
Here's the most imporant thing you need to know: I love this profession and work constantly to hone my craft. I never took short cuts in either my education or my training. I continue that path of skill-building today. As a result, I stay sharp, confident, and my abilities continue to grow.
