I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) and am in private psychotherapy practice in the Pioneer Square area of Seattle, Washington.
I have been in personal psychoanalytic therapy or psychoanalysis for years and continue to explore my own mind with senior clinicians.
Beyond my psychological training and clinical experience, I like to think that I bring a unique background of athletic, military, and legal experience, as well as decades-long immersion in the study and practice of Zen Buddhism, martial arts, and the philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche to my work as a psychotherapist.
Prior to my psychological training, I was a Military Intelligence Officer in the U.S. Army. I successfully completed the Army’s most rigorous training: Airborne and Ranger schools. I had extensive training in Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical (NBC) weapons systems and counter-t
errorism with operational experience in tactical and strategic intelligence missions. I received the Army’s Funded Legal Education Program Scholarship and transferred to the JAGC where I served as both a prosecutor and public defender. I have been a private criminal defense attorney in both federal and state courts. I received my law degree from Cornell Law School, a Master of Arts degree in military law from the Judge Advocate General’s School — Army.
I have studied the works and life of Friedrich Nietzsche for over 25 years and have founded the weekly Seattle Nietzsche Reading Group.
I am the proud father of two wonderful daughters and have the great privilege to be a stepfather to a growing young boy.
