About Alan

My practice focuses on work with couples who wish to connect better after periods of transition or challenge, such as from childcare, career shifts, infidelity, or empty nest difficulties.

I also specialize in working with individuals who feel drained, restless, or agitated on a habitual basis. This often accompanies difficult to change behavior patterns including being overly busy, numbing through addictions, people-pleasing, or being overly-controlling.



People with such struggles, both in the context of a relationship or on their own, often have histories of significant challenge or trauma that require both compassion and attention to work though. Thus, after addressing the immediate challenges of your situation, I will help you work through some of the root causes of your distress.

In addition to utilizing well-researched treatments including Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy and Somatic Therapy, I offer psycho-education throughout our meetings so you understand the rationale behind therapeutic approaches. Ultimately, this process can help you feel more peace and freedom in your life. I welcome being part of your healing journey.
