For over thirteen years, I've been seeing clients (both individuals and couples) and my goal has always been to help them achieve meaningful change, whether in getting through a difficult current situation or wanting to break old patterns that keep them from living a more fulfilling life. Some challenges I've helped people overcome include anxiety, depression, relationship issues, feeling stuck in a rut, grief, hopelessness, self-esteem issues, and work-related stress. Exploring these issues with a warm, welcoming, and non-judgmental therapist can really help.

I view my role as your partner in this journey and value the opportunity to support you in reaching your destination.
Time heals all wounds. You’ve heard it all before. But what if it does not? What if no matter how much time passes or how hard you try to forget, the memory of the hurt still haunts you? You thought you put it behind you yet it creeps up at the worst possible times in the worst possible ways. You go about every day dissatisfied with life, with growing frustrations that now seem to bring your relationships to the brink of a breaking point. People don’t understand you nor do they seem to recognize or acknowledge your pain. You feel exhausted. Something needs to change.

I have experience working with couples navigating neurodivergence as well as with couples who are queer and/or gender expansive.
My work often centers around folks who are experiencing grief or loss, healing from trauma, navigating difficult life transitions, or experiencing relational challenges. My areas of specialty are neurodivergence (autism, ADHD, etc.), gender exploration, and BPD. I also support folks who are dealing with overwhelming anxiety, depression, dissociation, or cPTSD. I am queer-affirming, trans-affirming, and neurodivergent-affirming. I also have familiarity with spiritual and religious trauma. I bring an anti-oppressive, postmodern, and trauma-informed framework into my work. I support individual adults, kids, families, and couples.

What keeps you up at night? Anxiety? Depression? A fucked-up relationship? Or do you simply find that the world is spinning out of order? As Marshall McLuhan said, "We don't know who discovered water, but we know it wasn't a fish." The point is: it’s hard to see the whole picture when you’re in the middle of the picture. That's where therapy helps. Therapy offers you the chance to sift through your thoughts, feelings, and ideas in a safe and compassionate space. From there, a deeper consciousness can emerge. And with that consciousness comes the opportunity to create change.

In my work with couples, I utilize a Gottman informed framework along with a perspective of balancing the individual and the relationship to bring a deeper understanding of how your individual issues are manifesting in your relationship and how you can work together to overcome them.
As an openly gay bi-cultural man, I’ve spent the better part of my adult life unlearning the harmful messages our world tells us about what is means to be different - that we’re somehow broken or unworthy. I am here to tell you they are wrong. You are fabulous, vibrant and deserving of all the gifts this world has to offer. I became a therapist to share what I’ve learned and to bring healing not just to queer folks, but to anyone who knows what it feels like to be left out. When we work together, you can expect a safe, affirming, and sometimes silly space where we collaborate to find real solutions you can implement right away.

Trained in Gottman Method of couples therapy and informed by IFS, I help you engage in constructive conflict, heal from childhood trauma, and feel safe in your relationships.
You want to be more compassionate with yourself but struggle with constant self-criticism. The more you try to be kind to yourself, the more your inner voice judges your imperfections and mistakes. You feel defeated at resolving this internal battle, so you disassociate or become hyper-focused on productivity. Whether as a woman experiencing increased pregnancy and postpartum anxieties, anger, and betrayal by their body in birth traumas or as a couple having trouble navigating a new life stage that has surfaced disconnection and loneliness, you're looking for a way out of this cycle.

Thank you for taking time to read about my work. I am a clinical psychologist (PhD, UCLA, 1991) and have been providing psychotherapy to individuals and couples for over twenty five years. My approach integrates insight oriented/depth psychotherapy with mindfulness/meditation within a framework of body awareness. A central part of therapy is the mutually created caring and healing relationship. If we work together, time will be devoted to building a trusting, safe and containing relationship where early (developmental) as well as more recent challenges can be discussed, explored and healed.
