Profile
“I approach treatment with a nonjudgmental curiosity about your past and present experience. This helps us identify and mobilize all of the resources available to you which makes achieving your goals more attainable.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I’ve joked that if I ever wrote a memoir, its title would be Tell Me More. Besides being one of my most often-used phrases when providing therapy, it neatly sums up what has led me to my career as a psychologist. I have a genuine fascination with others and a desire to know more about them. Growing up, report cards usually had carefully crafted statements such as, “Michael is very friendly… it would serve him to talk less with others during class.” I was curious about the people around me even then. As I made my way to the mental health field, I learned about the therapeutic power of this genuine curiosity and interest. I started working as a direct care staff member at a child/adolescent inpatient unit and was awed by the staff’s ability to calm an upset teenager simply by showing genuine interest in their experience. I realized that, with the correct education and training, I could learn to harness and expand on my innate interest in people to support and help others.
What should someone know about working with you?
It is my belief that both change and the ability to learn new ideas or skills is ultimately the consequence of the strength of the relationship between therapist and client. Generally, I approach treatment with a nonjudgmental curiosity about your past and present experience. This helps us identify and mobilize all of the resources available to you which makes achieving your goals more attainable.
How do your own core values shape your approach to therapy?
I firmly believe that one can take things seriously without being too serious. I really value humor and try to make space for it within the therapy room. Clients are sometimes surprised to find that good therapy work often involves both tears of sadness and laughter.
