About Me

I became interested in marriage and family therapy while I was volunteering as a hospital chaplain. I discovered that pastoral care was often not enough to properly support the needs of patients. I built a new plan to learn more psychotherapy, and after years of study, became a marriage and family therapist. I currently hold clinical licenses in DC and Massachusetts. Today, I provide a variety of psychotherapeutic relational interventions in working with couples, individuals, and families. The process is refreshing and rewarding and begins to conclude when clients start to rewrite their own relational stories. You will address such things as attachment history, coping skills to help you regulate, mindfulness practices, and development of competences in controlling/balancing your daily life. All interventions are trauma-informed. The latest evidenced-based techniques are used. Privacy, safety, and confidentiality are always our first priority.

Eric’s experience transcends generations. He connects with us even as a same sex African American couple. He listens, provides tools, statistics, science, and life lessons. He helps us mediate problems and grief. He is a godsend
