With my background as a professor of psychiatry and psychotherapy training director, I offer a unique perspective to my clients. That informed and objective perspective enables my clients to look at their lives, careers, and relationships differently and see new opportunities. My experience and training help bring clarity to complex situations, the compassion and professionalism to develop and maintain trusting and confidential relationships, and the skills to quickly develop effective solutions.
My consulting services are intended to help individuals in various areas of their lives; for example, gaining more clarity and perspective during life and career transitions; navigating relationship issues; confronting existential issues; making difficult decisions; and learning strategies for overcoming the obstacles that stand in your way.
I have a particular interest and experience in working with elite athletes, focusing on early transitions into professional sports (or high-performance sport environment) and transition away from an athletic career when it comes to an end.
A trusting and mutually respectful relationship will facilitate honesty and creative problem solving. New ideas and innovative solutions will follow.
I am direct and solution-focused. I will serve as a source of objectivity, information, experience, insight, and accountability in an effort to arrive at an efficient and effective resolution to the issue for which you sought consultation.
It’s important to emphasize that the life consulting service that I offer is not therapy. Yet, given my professional experience, I am able to be sensitive to and work effectively with emotional, psychological, or spiritual aspects of problems. If I perceive a need for psychotherapy, or should you wish for psychotherapeutic work, we can discuss available options.
