About Tim

A frothy latte, resting on a dark wood table, and shot from above
I welcome clients into my private practice, where I provide individual, couples, and family therapy. 


I work with women and men who struggle with emotional intimacy, to accept their own complexity, rediscover and value their natural depth, and to learn practical relationship skills. This approach is a product of many years in private practice, and as supervising therapist in an outpatient clinic and psychiatric hospital where, for 25 years, I provided psychotherapy and case management to clients with major mental illness and substance abuse problems, as well as supervising teams of other professionals.

My background includes:

I'm also happily married, and the father to four grown sons, including two stepchildren. 

My little dog Tilly comes to work with me daily, and greets clients with happy enthusiasm.
