As a self-identified gay man , I am quite familiar first-hand with the process of 'coming out' in a predominantly heterosexual normative, patriarchal, society. I can be your ally dealing with issues of self-esteem, anxiety, depression, guilt, shame, how they affect relationships, be it romantic, sexual, purely platonic, or work-related, and any compulsive behavior you may experience in response to developmental trauma. I am equally at ease and experience working with individuals and couples across the entire gender and sexual identity spectrum.

As a licensed therapist based in San Francisco, I help individuals and couples dive beneath the surface-level issues to discover the underlying causes of their distress. Many of the men and women who choose to work with me are in the grips of anxiety, depression, addiction, grief, or relationship challenges. Many are highly motivated professionals that are self-reliant and achievement-focused, but often struggle with self-defeating thoughts and patterns that keep them feeling stuck.

While I specialize in various types of trauma, I work with issues around attachment, identity, LGBTQ +, life transitions, mood dysregulation and issues unique to MEN .
I am accepting new clients as of September 2022 for VIRTUAL psychotherapy only. I have been working in the field Mental Health since 2005. This is not quick fix therapy, this is deep, longer term psychodynamic psychotherapy, offering CBT/MI methods and EMDR when appropriate. Psychotherapy is not just a science, it is an ART. It takes YEARS of dedication to this craft to eventually help people make changes to their lives. I can help de-activate trauma and help you work towards feeling better about yourself so that you can have healthier relationships with people and yourself!

Having said that, my specialties are in working with: Children who need help with emotional regulation skills, adolescents with depression and anxiety, individuals with mixed cultures or of immigrant descent, men looking to enhance their emotional intelligence, and people who want to integrate their spiritual practice with daily life.
My intention as a therapist is to empower individuals be in tune with their deepest truths and to relate to life in a more authentic way. By providing a warm environment, I hope my clients feel safe to express what matters to them. My therapeutic approach is strongly influenced by more than 12 years of a dedicated meditation practice. I utilize mindfulness and somatic approaches in supporting people to become more aware of their thoughts, feelings, and body sensations. In doing so, I trust that our ability to welcome our experience creates possibilities for healing and ultimately to cultivate a "life worth living."

I help young, career-driven men work through issues involving low self-esteem, dating/relationship difficulties, and life transition stressors.
Dating and relationships can be challenging, especially when balancing work, family, and personal life. Perhaps some of the important pieces of your life have not fallen into place yet, leaving you feeling frustrated and stuck. Experiencing this day after day can feel hopeless, but I am glad to say that you CAN make things better. Men are often taught to dismiss and devalue their feelings. Perhaps it was a lack of support of our emotions growing up or a deeply ingrained acceptance of the social norm that celebrates a very specific definition of masculinity. Either way, it can result in unaddressed anxiety, anger, or depression.

I work with all populations, especially men and young adults, using an integrative approach that emphasizes mindfulness and a holistic view of the self.
Choosing to start therapy is a sign of strength, not weakness. I believe all people have a natural inclination toward growth and wholeness and sometimes things get in the way. Exploring these obstacles with compassion and courage can help you cultivate the most important relationship of your life -- your relationship with yourself. Whether your challenge is depression, anxiety, grief and loss, relationships, addictions or career challenges, all you need to get started is the desire to change.

I feel passionate about working with men interested in unpacking the ways that traditional stories of masculinity may have harmed them.
I believe in the inherent worthiness of all human beings. Unfortunately, each of us likely have experiences in our lives that teach us that there is something wrong with who we at the core. Psychotherapy is a space for remembering and unearthing the self-love and gifts that each of us come into this life possessing. Through relating authentically, being compassionately curious with whatever arises, and developing a deeper relationship with the body’s intelligence, I hope to help my clients become more expressed in who they truly are, build lasting, meaningful relationships and connect more deeply to their purpose for being alive.

However, most of my clients are male and in their teens and early twenties.
I have over ten years experience working with clients in their teens or twenties who have: attachment issues; ADHD, Anxiety, and Depression. They suffer relational trauma for a variety of reasons, such as: emotional abuse and neglect; physical or sexual abuse; and sexual assault. I help my clients resolve past trauma; heal attachment wounds; replace unhealthy habits with healthy ones; and to progress towards their life goals. This results in them having healthier and more satisfying relationships; a greater sense of connection and belonging; and higher functioning in every day life.

There's warm, professional, sensitive and good-humored help available, using competence gained from many years of experience. I help couples with high conflict, including infidelity, who want to save, or simply improve, their relationship. I also have extensive experience and training in treating anxiety, panic, stress, anger, depression, and substance abuse problems.
