Who I Work  With

About Me . . .

I am just a sojourner trying to enlarge my horizon by merging it with yours.  While I can be considered a privileged member of our God-spoiled Western society, I am just as broken inside as you are.  Despite the fact that, by grace, serendipity or miracle, I might have survived a few more life crises more than you, I might be celebrating passing a different milestone than you, and I happen to successfully maintain an appearance of normality, I strongly believe that we live on the same Earth, under the same God and are burdened by the same limiting and frustrating human condition.


My Emphasis . . .

I am here to mirror your way of perceiving reality, to alleviate your emotional pain, to create the best environment that stimulates your growth from inside out, to guide your heart into asking the right questions, to help your mind find new insight, meaning, and relevance, and to support you toward accomplishing the most rewarding goals in your relational universe.


My Unique Qualifications . . .

As a seasoned male adult, in all humility, I would be tempted to say that I am experienced.  As true as that can be, loss, suffering and death, level us all.  As a son, spouse and father, I am aware of the difficulty of investing your soul into another.  As a first generation Romanian-American immigrant, I had to dig deep into socially constructed dilemmas like culture versus religion, sex versus gender, moral versus ethical.  As a student for life, I have learned that the more you know, the more you know how much you don’t know.  Beside English, I fluently speak Romanian, music and poetry, and I feel quite at home with Greek, Latin, French and Spanish.  Above all, I am convinced that, because love is both the origin and the destination of our existence and loving another human being is the most  difficult, the ultimate task ever entrusted to us, personal holistic development should be a mandatory prerequisite of holistic intimacy.


My Values . . .

In the spirit of fairly serving your specific needs, beyond love, genuineness, integrity and respect for your own individual quest for personal wholeness, for the duration of our therapeutic journey, I am open to embracing your world-view, your belief system and your set of values.

Structural Therapy

Strategic Therapy

Communication Therapy

Existential Therapy

Experiential Therapy

Person-Centered Therapy
