Mental health challenges are due to the aftereffects of traumatic experiences. Trauma can place a strain on your family, work, relationships, and even cause issues with self-worth. I specialize in trauma therapy along with treating personality disorders, depression, mood disorders, anxiety, and addiction. All these disorders can look different from person to person, and that is where our therapeutic journey of empowerment and self-exploration begins. I concentrate on creating a safe space of growth and self-discovery through unconditional positive regard, emotional regulation, and guided activities.

Choosing to begin psychotherapy opens yourself to the experience of self-discovery, reflection, and growth. This decision may feel exhilarating or scary, as self-work often requires courage and a willingness to examine aspects of life which may have gone unattended for some time. But truly, beginning psychotherapy reflects an inner desire and commitment to enhance the parts of yourself and your life which are working well, and to explore, and ultimately make changes in the parts you would like to be different.

I view mental health as an important part of one’s well-being. Difficulties and challenges are part of our lives, and my role as a counselor is to be of assistance to clients and help them work through these difficulties and challenges when they occur. As I believe that people have the potential to find the answers to their problems, I help clients get in touch with their inner wisdom that is within them but not always accessible. My work is dedicated towards helping clients gain a better understanding of themselves, their relationships, problems, and personal patterns to feel liberated and lead more meaningful lives.

Shame is a near universal experience for LGBTQ people. Working with a LGBTQ therapist is a profound way to heal from shame. I founded the Gay Therapy Center in 2015 because I knew from my own experience that it can be especially healing and powerful to work with a therapist who shares part of your own LGBTQ identity. Knowing that your therapist has lived parts of your experience helps you to build a strong, trusting relationship in therapy. We’ve become the largest private provider of LGBTQ-affirmative therapy with offices in San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, Washington, DC, and worldwide via video conferencing.

Are you a gay man struggling with anxiety, a major life transition, depression or feel isolated from the gay community? While social media and dating apps provide easy ways to stay connected and meet new people, they may not provide the type of intimacy you want. As a gay therapist, I understand our experiences are as diverse as everyone else's, and at the same time, there are aspects of our lives that are unique to us and our community. During our work together, you will gain deeper insight into your problems, develop skills to change unhelpful patterns and feel more empowered to achieve the happiness and fulfillment you deserve.

Life can feel impossible to avoid struggling and we often don't feel we have the skills to cope successfully through. Unfortunately, sometimes we don't have all the resources we need for a given situation. Parts of us take on desperate roles trying to help us to survive. This might look like anxiety, depression, PTSD, addiction, and relationship/family issues. I aim to help you process unresolved issues and feelings and find solutions.

Do you have difficulty remembering the last time you felt genuinely happy and at peace in your life? You may sometimes feel an overwhelming sense of sadness, guilt, shame and regret from experiences you have been through. You may feel depressed, anxious, confused and “stuck” in a repeating cycle of negative thoughts and emotions. Our beliefs, thoughts and emotions are influenced by our experiences and how we react to them. Self-limiting beliefs, such as we cannot do anything to improve our situation, can keep us in negative thought patterns and emotions which then can have a direct correlation to our reality.

The pain of disconnection, conflict and hopelessness in your relationship, marriage or intimate partnership is a pain like no other. Our earliest and deepest wounds occurred in the context of connection, or in the absence of connection that was needed. We seek out relationships in order to feel connected, stimulated, safe, loved and fulfilled. However, with each of our unique histories of interpersonal wounding, trauma and systemic oppression, intimate relationships often become the site of rewounding, disappointment, resentment and disconnection. Actually, this is normal! And it doesn't have to be the end of your story.

Therapy is a way of connecting to yourself and exploring your challenges in a safe and collaborative way. I understand the bravery it takes to show up in your vulnerability and I aim to provide a safe, non-judgmental, and compassionate space that cultivates courage over comfort in our work. As a somatic psychotherapist, I like to offer a space for the body and mind to connect. My work is also influenced by humanistic, relational, and psychodynamic modalities tailored to support your unique individual needs.

Concurrently, I trained as a therapist, so I have an intimate understanding of working in industry, managing work/life balance, negotiating work and personal relationships and navigating life transitions. I have been seeing clients for 17 years - the last 11 as a licensed clinician. My clients in various industries seem to appreciate that I understand their world deeply.

I put an emphasis on the working relationship between client and clinician. This allows me to have a warm, interactive, strength-based and client-centered approach using a variety of modalities. In my work with youth, I also gained experience and insight into the patterns we fall into as children/young adults (based on a multitude of events or traumas in our lives) and how these can later have an effect on our adult selves. I believe that bringing awareness to these patterns and unpacking their origins can be incredibly helpful. I also bring a queer, feminist, trauma-informed, and culturally sensitive/curious lens my work.
