I’ve worked with adolescents, young adults, and adults from a variety of cultural and ethnic backgrounds and in a variety of settings. I see many people dealing with stress, anxiety and depression, and I specialize in life transitions and adjustment, including experiences such as adjusting to a new job, beginning college, becoming a new parent or transitioning to more than one child in the family, and family structural changes like separation & divorce. I also specialize in both academic research and clinical work on the role of fathers in the family and issues that fathers face. I’ve been interviewed as an expert by popular publications, including CNN and Wired, and had my research cited in the Blog on Learning and Development and the Child and Family Blog. Outside of work I enjoy the beautiful west coast outdoors, hiking, travel, cooking, trying new food, and music.
