I support women and men to free themselves of the pain of living in old roles and negative communication.
Are your relationships burdened by loss of trust, constant fighting, or a feeling of disconnection? Are dealing with the fallout of an affair? Are you struggling with anger or communication issues? Do you you want relief from suffering, stress or isolation? My mindfulness approach, based on over 30 years experience, will help you get immediate relief through new perspectives and skills. By learning to see your problematic relationship patterns and negative cycles, you will also discover new pathways and new ways of relating. As you feel better, you will take steps to strengthen your new discoveries and abilities.

I have expertise in working particularly with gay & bisexual cisgender men as well as well as individuals coping with their HIV/AIDS diagnosis, and other chronic illnesses.
Whether you are coping with depression, sexuality issues, struggling with chronic illness or addiction issues, or having problems in your relationships with others, I believe that therapy can help you find the solutions to move forward in your life. I believe that all individuals have the capacity to live their best life and can become 'unstuck' with the help of therapy. I work with adults, both younger and older, cis women and trans & non-binary clients, as well as with couples navigating problems in their relationships.

I work with men on intimacy, sex/desire, sexual orientation, and problematic sexual behaviors--porn, compulsive behaviors, ... Finding a middle path can be challenging--and profoundly rewarding as you create new ways of relating to yourself and others. I recognize the anxiety, consequences, and suffering when porn, apps, and sexual behaviors are out of sync with who you want to be.

I work with men , people in relationship with men and those seeking healing from past injuries with men .
I specialize in working with men approaching or in mid-life (30’s, 40’s, 50’s) who need help with work, relational and personal challenges. Adapting to a transition or preparing to make one, can lead to feeling stuck, anxious, depressed or full of anger. Perhaps you’re in a relationship that is more characterized by conflict rather than love and satisfying sex. Maybe you’re facing loss, feeling disconnected or overwhelmed by your feelings. These experiences can lead to addiction, isolation and compulsive behaviors. I’ve worked with these issues and I can help you.

I believe that the power of vulnerability is one of our greatest strengths and ultimately can provide us with a deeper sense of self, security, comfort, and more compassionate towards one another. Coming from a strength-based form of doing therapy and providing support to others, I work to provide my clients with a sense of validation and comfort. As a cis male that identifies as Latinx and as a proud member of the LGBTQIA community, I am able to hold the experience of living in many diverse, cross-cultural emotional experiences that we sometimes may not even know how to begin to understand.

Though I work with everyone, and all are welcome, always, I specialize in working with adolescent teens and adult men . My work is particularly effective in dealing with social anxiety, ADHD, and important life transitions such as leaving a relationship, moving to a new place, leaving home, etc. My work is humanistic and client centered. Rather than have an agenda, I appreciate helping clients clarify their 'vision,' find meaning through challenge, and gain deeper understanding of their dilemmas. I am also able to effectively facilitate conversations between parents and their children (of all ages), either online or in person.

I specialize in working with men who have a lot of strengths but keep hitting a wall. They often have a hard time identifying exactly how they are feeling, which can lead to trouble making decisions, speaking up for what they need, or difficulty setting healthy boundaries. Sometimes they feel zoned out, as if they aren't really present, and this leads to problems connecting with others or even with themselves. They feel like their problems aren't big enough to warrant attention, and they feel guilty asking for help. Most of them feel like they should be able to handle things on their own. Does any of this sound familiar?

I believe that psychotherapy is an interpersonal journey of discovery of new perspectives and new ideas on the issues that concern the client(s). The therapist lends his or her knowledge of psychotherapeutic techniques, desire to help, ability to empathize, and his or her ideas from past and present experience The client brings curiosity about himself or herself, expertise on his or her own experience, and a desire/need to change.

The issues on spirituality, mental health and psychology are part of my practice and interests. The frames I use are Psychodynamic and Tibetan Buddhism. How to overcome psychological conditioning and personal narratives that are too extreme and unrealistic. Many times some people find themselves in situations that aggravate their emotional pain, no way out but rather than look inside of themselves look out there, hoping that their live will change.

My style is warm, gentle, and nonjudgmental. I mostly practice in a psychodynamic psychotherapy frame. This means that we will use our unique therapeutic relationship to learn about patterns of managing feelings and relationships that likely helped you in your early environment, but may be getting in your way today. With greater awareness of these patterns, we can further make use of our relationship as a safe opportunity for you to test out new ways of managing emotions and relating to people. We also have the option of judicious use of medication to address symptoms that may be impeding your life and relationships, if desired.

I enjoy working with individuals who are negotiating changes, difficulties, or losses in their lives and trying to understand their experience. I believe it is up to each of us to make sense of our lives, and psychotherapy is often a valuable place to explore this in an open and non-judgmental way. It is often turning points or changing phases of life that call us to question things, confront us with important decisions, and challenge us to decide what is meaningful. Symptoms of depression and anxiety, or events such as illness, trauma and loss can call into question our beliefs, values and goals in life.

I work primarily with trauma survivors: people who have gone through experiences that were too painful, shameful, frightening, or confusing to put into words at the moment those experiences occurred. You were or are alone in an unbearable situation. It wasn’t or isn't safe to talk about what you were going through. Those painful events might have happened yesterday, or maybe twenty years ago – but the bad feelings have never left you. One day you decide it’s time to figure out what happened, and how to cope, and how to build a life of meaning and purpose. I hope that day is today. I believe I can help you.

Hello! I believe the power of therapy lies in improving your relationship to the world, the people close to you, and ultimately to yourself. I use our relationship as our guide in your journey to heal, transform, and navigate life's challenges. While I provide therapy to people from all walks of life, I especially enjoy working with gay, lesbian, queer, trans, and nonbinary individuals and people of color. In therapy together, we will create an affirming space to understand what's going on for you, reflect on the factors contributing to your current needs, and explore ways to move forward.
