About Me

Life is complex and often messy. We all feel burdened, alone, or overwhelmed from time to time. We all deserve and have the ability to be happy and healthy. I believe it is my job to empower people and help individual’s thrive in their current environment. I have a long history of working closely with individuals in crisis. What I have learned from my experience is that people have a misconception of therapy and believe it is for “others.” I have observed that people routinely settle for less and will remain in an unhealthy situation rather than seek guidance. I love being a therapist and working with a diverse population.
I am passionate about assisting you or your loved ones to be able to recognize strengths and work towards positive growth. I would describe my therapy style as Person Centered with a focus on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I have found my approach to be effective in helping clients improve by exploring their lives in a supportive environment.

I am very pleased with the service. It’s a great way to “work on yourself” for those of us who have little time to spare.

Mark's a great guy - one of the most genuine and down to earth therapists I've ever had. Definitely would recommend him to anyone looking to connect with someone who can empathize them at a real level and help guide them in the right direction. Incredibly grateful for having talked to Mark and looking forward to our continued sessions.

Mark was really helpful. He can understand your feelings and thoughts and turn every negative thing to a positive.
He is accurate and is never late for a session. He asks about your week then after discussion. He suggests a new plan for the next week. Like what issues you want to deal with next? And then he puts a plan for it to discuss the week after. I will definitely recommend him and he helped me a lot.

Mark is brilliant at what he does. I like that he's really straightforward and that he speaks freely without being judgmental at all. His advice has helped me with a lot of issues that I've been struggling with. I intend to continue being counseled by Mark because I believe that it's making a positive impact in my life.

Mark has been a true Godsend to me and my life, when calling anything in my life that a month ago just would not have happened. He is exactly what I need and needed in my life to address all my current stresses. I would and will recommend him to anybody I know that is in need. Very grateful for him in my life.

I feel like I can be 100% honest with no judgement. I feel heard and understood - which is a breath of fresh air. Mark is very supportive and makes a point to focus on the positive and I feel good leaving our sessions rather than feeling low given what we talk about. I really do (and have) recommend, Mark.

I’ve been sitting here for the last few minutes trying to find the right words to describe Mark, but I’ve been coming up short. I think the most important thing to say is that he cares. And I feel extremely lucky to have someone in my corner who knows what he’s talking about and really cares. I imagine all of the people Mark talks to feel lucky too. With Mark and a rare few other special people in my corner, it feels like I really can get back on track. I’m thankful for him.

Mark has been invaluable in navigating the past few weeks of my life which have been tumultuous to put it lightly. I would highly recommend him to any man going through emotional turmoil.

Mark was a wonderful therapist to me over the course of my time on teen counseling. He met all the criteria I was searching for. He was non biased, detail oriented, and understood my needs for therapy vs. traditional therapeutic modalities. I would recommend Mark for treatment of depression, stress, and anxiety.

Written by T.O. on Jan 02, 2020 after counseling with Mark for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, and relationship issues

After changing my initial counselor I met Mark. He listened to my issues and kept notes about my case which he often referred back to which was great to see. He set clear and real objectives and helped me deal with an ongoing issue I was experiencing at the time. He was very understanding and patient in the way he spoke which made a real positive connection. Thank you so much Mark.

Mark is, in a few words, blunt, kind, humorous, and helpful. He's a man who won't bullshit you, don't expect sugar coating when you talk to him, he'll tell you how it really is. At the same time, he's gentle, proactive, and well attuned. He cares about you, and he wants to lead you down the path of betterment, he's a man of good intent. I enjoy speaking to Mark, and if you want something real, this is it.

I have only been talking with Mark for a short time but have found him to helpful and understanding. I’ve been struggling for such a long time and to be welcomed and accepted with such open arms is a huge breath of fresh air. He has been very patient and accommodating as we find the best ways to work together. I am looking forward to going deeper and becoming a better version of me with his help.
