Even as the field itself grows, as I embarked on my own journey as a mental health professional, I noticed a space that was fairly empty. As a multi-minority myself, I recognized that for the LGBTQ and POC communities, it is vital that they see someone that can, at the very least, be familiar with the cultural nuances correlating with their identity in order for them to fully embrace therapy. The stigma around therapy may be waning overall, but there is still plenty of it left individually that can result in reluctance, especially for marginalized & underserved communities.

I specialize in working with gay individuals. As a gay child growing up in the midwest, I endured years of bullying, ridicule, and humiliation. As an adult, my work with a good therapist was key in helping me to re-cast my self image, accept and value myself for who I am, and transform the way that I interface with the world at large. So profound was this work that it moved me to become a psychotherapist myself. Whether you are a young person trying to cope with isolation or various forms of abuse,

Are you LGBTQIA + and do you want someone who listens, provides feedback, and tailors sessions to your preferred format? Anxiety and figuring stuff out as an LGBTQIA + person is draining. You deserve a space where you can be vulnerable. You are exhausted as you try to manage it all with your inner-critic snapping at you. I'm gay myself, so I understand how weird this world can feel. Let's work together to bring back a sense of ease and calm. You can learn how to deal with stress, overwhelm, and feelings of hopelessness.

I have eight years of experience running therapy groups, ranging in topics from addiction to LGBT issues.
I believe in an approach to psychotherapy that is empathetic, collaborative and tailored to an individual's unique needs, where you feel understood from the first meeting. My approach recognizes the importance of the relationship between us, where therapy is an opportunity to make changes in our relationships by working within one in a therapeutic environment where you feel respected and supported. Life can be painful and challenging; my goal is to provide a space that feels safe and non-judgmental in order to experiment with new ways of thinking, gain insight, and have a happier, healthier, and fuller life.

I work with individuals and couples, specializing in gay male/ LGBTQ populations.
Are you feeling stuck in relationships, jobs, or entrenched beliefs about yourself that may not be valid? Unhealthy thoughts, feelings, behaviors and attachments can create patterns that lead to anxiety, depression, addiction and more. The definition of insanity is “doing the same thing over and over, expecting different results.” If you want to break the cycle, therapy can be a powerful tool in helping you identify problem areas and begin your personal transformation. The process begins with having someone who will listen, understand your needs, uncover stressors and seek solutions.

I specialize in working with people in LGBTQ + communities, addictions, borderline personality, complex trauma, and anxiety disorders.
I see therapy as a collaborative process exploring how the past informs the present and allowing trust and authenticity to foster insight and development. I strive to provide the highest quality of care, focusing on the unique needs of each individual and creating a safe environment with room for challenges, exploration, process, and growth. I help clients learn and practice skills for tolerating pain in times of crisis, responding instead of reacting, increasing self-respect, improving relationships, and participating fully in each moment. My ultimate goal is to help my clients build and nurture a life they feel is worth living.

Individual & group topics included: Parent Education; sexual orientation/gender identity, all ages ( LGBTQ & ally community, PFLAG); life-span changes (career & academic transitions, "failure to launch," "empty nest," menopause, etc.
I'm a licensed clinical psychologist who places greatest value in establishing an empathic, warm, & respectful environment (while modeling firm, healthy boundaries) for clients & their families. Over the last 7 years I've treated adults, children, teens, couples, families, & groups in a private practice setting. My strength-based, collaborative approach drawing on numerous techniques (CBT, DBT, Fam Systems, etc.) helps clients get the most from therapy & allows tailoring our work to your needs. When beneficial and appropriate, I work to foster a "team approach," encouraging good communication w/other members of a client's daily life (i.e. other practitioners/physicians, family, teachers, etc.).
