Let's Connect (424) 293-7980
I work with men who are ready to face themselves, their past, present and future with courage and honesty; men who are prepared to take a closer look at their own reflection. In the pursuit of better answers about ourselves we cannot underestimate the power of asking better questions. I'm a proactive collaborative partner toward growing, expressing, exploring or resolving what you bring into therapy. A quote that symbolizes our work is "Once there was a man who was afraid of his shadow. Then he met it. Now he glows in the dark."
Anxiety, power/control, relationship dynamics, trauma, abuse, loneliness, addiction/recovery and diverse aspects of sex and sexuality dominate my practice. Dynamics around male identity, perception (internal and external), the strain of convention, fear, wealth, crisis, and issues of public persona are also often themes with my clients.
I have devoted my practice to working with men. Our relationships, our work, our families, our fears, our bodies, our unspoken pain, our needs/wants, our place in the world - is what we explore. Making sense of the intersectionality and harmonizing of everything you are, everything you are trying to become and who you may have been - is what we do together.

The men I work with tend to want to approach change in their life through empowerment, decisiveness and action. One of my roles is to ensure that meaning, vulnerability, and introspection are included in that process, while offering containment, direction and expertise to their experience. I believe we must look backward and inward before we move forward and outward.
