As a gay man with extensive training in LGBTQ+ psychology, I am adept at helping gay, lesbian, bisexual and trans individuals overcome the difficulties of growing up in heteronormative families and/or cultures.
I am a Licensed Psychotherapist who provides therapy to those who want to learn more about themselves and change their lives for the better. My goal in therapy is to offer my client a fresh outlook and useful tools in order to tackle life’s challenges with increased confidence and grace. Accordingly, I approach therapy in a down-to-earth fashion, helping my clients identify what is and what not working well for them in their lives. Together, we will identify what brought you to this page and how I can support you as best as possible.

Welcome! Let's see if we are a good fit :) First, I care unconditionally for my clients and respect them; operating completely without judgment. I will always be honest and "hold up a mirror" to help them examine and shift core beliefs keeping them stuck. I believe most behavior change follows from this space of challenge and support. I specialize in treating those who are seen as different, misunderstood. People with personality disorders, neurodivergence (ADHD, ASD+), substance use, eating disorders, trauma, self-injury, OCD features. I enjoy helping others with more moderate issues too, like young folks struggling to "adult".

You are struggling, but no one seems to understands what you're going through. Life threw you a curveball and trying your best just doesn't prove enough. Everyday tasks can feel impossible when you're suffering. Sometimes things are simply too hard because you are hurting or worried. You wonder if you're a good enough parent when your child argues with you. You are so frustrated with your partner not hearing your worries and sorrows. You long for healthy relationships and being understood since you know what you're capable of if only you had sufficient support and love. You are seeking help because you desire real change.

Society and social media tell us that we have to look, feel, and act a certain way to “fit in.” More likely than not, you don’t fit the typical mold that society has created and as a result you might feel like an outsider; other, different, less than, anxious, depressed, or lonely. Perhaps this doesn't quite fit your particular situation or feelings, and that's okay, too. I am here to offer you alternatives; acceptance, non-judgment, balance, and effective tools to help you live life with more fulfillment and less conflict. I see adolescents, adults, and couples/families coping with various mental health and life issues.

We all feel lost from time to time, but there’s always light at the end of the tunnel. I’ve been through my own therapy as a young adult when I was stuck in a bout of anxiety and panic attacks due to childhood trauma. Throughout my years of working with traumatized individuals, I learned first-hand about how childhood trauma can have a strong impact on adulthood. I can help you address unresolved trauma, in order for you to find passion, connection, and purpose in your life.

I allocate my time and practice between two specific and unique issues: one being sexually related problems, the other being OCD. With sexually related issues, they can show up as relationship problems, infidelity, arousal discrepancy, or LGBT matters. Likewise, with OCD, there are many different forms and subtypes: harm, scrupulosity, contamination, sexual, symmetry/order/balance/just right. I am trained and experienced in both fields, utilizing tools and interventions to treat one or the other, and sometimes both.

You’ve struggled to find time to make a regular weekly therapy appointment to cope with the isolation, overwhelm, anxiety, and sad feelings. Taking a really good deep breath sounds so simple, yet you are so busy that you forget to even take that 10-seconds to take care of yourself. You’re tired of feeling overwhelmed, unorganized, your heart constantly racing, or have an unending headache. It is exhausting to try to function this way. This is where EMDR Intensive come into play. About a week of your time, compared to one time a week for who knows how long.

What type of Thousand Oaks mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Thousand Oaks?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
