I am a licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT) practicing in Ridgefield, CT. I have one adult child from a former marriage and two young adult boys with my current wife, with whom I have been happily married for more than 25 years. I split my time between a not-for-profit agency and my private practice. I also lead parent education classes aimed at building resilience in children and teens and decreasing the risk of suicide, substance abuse, and other risky behaviors.
My education includes a BA from Colgate University, an MBA from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, and an MA in Marriage & Family Therapy from Fairfield University. Prior to becoming a therapist I was a Navy pilot, a senior corporate human resources executive, and a principal in a global management consulting firm.
I believe that my diverse experiences -- marriage, divorce, remarriage, child-rearing, military service, flying, leading others, developing talent, working and consulting with clients from different cultures, and now counseling couples and families -- have broadened my perspective and enhanced my ability to help my clients address a fairly broad range of issues.
My mission as a therapist is to help you to address your concerns and advance your goals. That is how I get my satisfaction. I am not in this to maximize my income. As a result, I want to work with you only as long as you are receiving value, and will do my best to help you achieve your goals as expeditiously as possible.
I look forward to working with you.
