Interpersonal relationships have intrigued me since childhood. As my studies in psychology failed to satiate my thirst to understand, I eventually chose to supplement my career with studies in the field of psychotherapy. This path proved transformational for me, both personally and professionally.

It also opened an endless array of nuances to interpersonal relationships. As a therapist, you can never really come to a standstill. Nor can you ever fully claim to know enough about emotions or internal tensions; after all, it would betray the very essence of my mission.
I see the same in my personal life with my wife and two children that you can’t ever hide from yourself.
