He draws from multiple therapy theories including cognitive-behavioral, systemic, psychodynamic, motivational interviewing, and the Gottman method to help people achieve their goals while maintaining a safe and trusting space. Max utilizes connections to the behavioral health and medical communities to ensure the right care for each client’s individual therapy needs.
Max has counseled clients with issues such as academic performance anxiety, managing video game and computer usage, high school / college sport and club stressors, addiction, making new friends, work stress, greek life difficulties, depression, and familial issues. His clients often come to him initially feeling stressed, uncomfortable, sad, worried, confused or stuck.
Max provides supervision for Pennsylvania-based therapists who are interested in obtaining their LPC licensure.
Max received his Bachelor of Science in Economics from the University of Pittsburgh where he graduated magna cum laude. He worked in finance and government related work for five years. During that time, Max wanted to spend more time with people and their feelings than his current work allowed. He decided to change careers and become a psychotherapist. Max received his Master of Education in Counseling Psychology from Temple University in May 2013, and became a Licensed Professional Counselor in January 2017.
In his free time, Max enjoys podcasts, exercising, cooking, video games, and the occasional karaoke night.
