Give yourself permission to be vulnerable by putting yourself first. Negative and highly-critical self-talk, especially for gay men, is the root of many of our problems and addictions. You may feel “less-than” others, think poorly of yourself, or are unsure how to get your needs met. I can help you to shed light on where this inner-critic is coming from, how to quiet it, and help you rebuild your relationship with self/others. Next, we can develop tools to manage anxiety and depression, embrace your sexuality, develop a healthier relationship to sex/porn, heal infidelity, integrate love and sex, or improve your relationships.

Therapy can be a transformative experience of acknowledging Self and finding a higher level of functioning. The relationship between therapist and client facilitates gentle and foundational changes aiming to discard dysfunctional coping skills and to acquire healthier tools for living. I intend to create an accepting and nonjudgmental space and connect with my clients through compassion, empathy and unconditional positive regard. I understand and cherish the intimacy and honor that is my role in my clients' lives.

My work is focused on initiating healing from the moment you walk through my door. And I recognize it takes a lot of courage to be in the room, with me as your therapist, while beginning this journey of deeper understanding of self and change. Together we will look inward at the fragmented pieces of your life, which can often be intimidating, but you won't be made to feel alone in this process. I will help you put the pieces of your life together so you can develop a stronger sense of self.

One's experience with fear, stress, sadness or uncomfortable feelings in general can have major impacts on how we view ourselves and the world. However, when provided with therapeutic guidance, collaboration, skills training, education and support, I have learned that one can cultivate courage, growth and resilience that allows them to reengage in life in meaningful ways. The process of therapy is a collaborative one and I believe that the relationship we develop through our work together should aid in instilling hope and increasing motivation to tackle whatever challenges you face.

What is “existential psychotherapy” and how can it help me? Existentialism is a philosophy that says that we are free and responsible for creating ourselves. How does this relate to therapy? Our freedom to choose our life direction creates anxiety. As one philosopher said, “anxiety is the dizziness of freedom.” Are you feeling this dizziness? Is it becoming a barrier to growth? You may be experiencing the infamous "existential crisis.” If so, I am here to help. I am an existential therapist. My mission is help you live a more satisfying and fulfilling life by facilitating your ability to live authentically.

I believe that relationships, with others and with oneself, are essential to living an enjoyable life. Healthy relationships and self-knowledge can be the remedy to our distress and the key to our healing. My approach is collaborative- I do not expect you to enter my office and "fix" yourself, but rather to work alongside me to cultivate insight, deepen relationships, and develop a stronger sense of self. Often we walk through life being merely existing-my goal is to help you thrive by living a well-balanced and joyful life.

People refer to therapy as a science or practice-but I have come to view it as an art in the most exquisite form. Therapy is about expressing and emoting, and finding value in the internal and external relationships we create. My education and clinical experience has verified the depth of this "art," revealing knowledge that can be gained, healing of old scars, and magic that can ensue when self-love occurs. I am a firm believer that therapy is not a requirement for healthy living, but similar to music and film, it can add intrigue, deepen relationships, and significantly enhance the quality of life.

A person most often seeks therapy when a part of his/her life feels unmanageable. Often past skills used to cope are no longer effective and one may feel vulnerable and alone even in the presence of others. Sometimes these feelings occur after a recent transition in a relationship, career choice, or a recent move. At other times, someone may experience diffuse feelings of anxiety and sadness without a specific stressor.

So much of life is about relationships, beginning with the relationship with oneself. I believe this is the foundation upon which people thrive. The therapeutic relationship is at the crux of self-discovery and personal growth, and through this connection, individuals begin to develop a greater understanding of themselves, their thoughts, feelings, behaviors, motivations and desires. This translates into a more empowered sense of self, improved relations with others, and ultimately a better quality of life.

We all have ideals-- how we think we should feel, how we feel we should think, how we want others to behave towards us, how we want our life to unfold. When reality doesn’t match our ideals, it can bring confusion, frustration, even despair. We may feel trapped between our ideals and reality, leading us to believe we are spinning in circles. I see the therapeutic process as one that allows for an exploration of these ideals and an opportunity to understand how they play a role in one’s relationship with self and with others. My hope is that, through this process, you will find a deeper clarity of your values, wants, and needs.
