Professional statement

Psychological science has proven that significant portions of our brains and minds are malleable. We are constantly shaped by our life's experiences, and being able to harness that change to your advantage is the mark of a well-adjusted person. Joe's role is to empower you to engage in this process of self-transformation. If you are ready to take the first step, let’s talk. His style of therapy is very much like his personality: open-minded, non-judgemental, compassionate, and direct. He imbues his sessions with a sense of humor, as he believes laughter can be just as cathartic and healing as crying.

Joe's approach is flexible and depends on the needs of his patients. While his primary orientation is humanistic and person-centered, he relies on psychodynamic, cognitive and behavioral interventions to help facilitate change. He believes in maintaining a comfortable atmosphere for all genders, sexualities, ethnicities, spiritual and political affiliations.

Joe specializes in adult individuals, couples and adolescents ages 16 years and older. He is a Gottman Level 2 trained couples therapist, and welcome any referrals for couples therapy. He offers Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) for Trauma, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) Skills Training and clinical hypnosis. See his website for more information.

I am currently seeing patients via telehealth. You can book a session instantly on my website.

The right therapist for you is the right fit personality-wise. Sign up for a free 30-minute session to see if we're a match.
