About

Tired of people who just don’t "get” you because you’re different? Looking for someone who will affirm you and your identity? Maybe you need help with depression, anxiety, addiction, or relationship issues but you’re worried about being misunderstood or judged for being queer. Or maybe the issue IS sorting out your sexual orientation or gender identity. As a transman, I get what that feels like. This is a safe space for you. I have more than 25 years of experience in helping people improve their mood and their lives. We'll work on getting you feeling better, even when the world has been less than kind. You deserve no less.
I primarily use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, but I'm also trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Trauma-Focused CBT, Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, Schema Therapy, etc. Our practice is welcoming to all the flavors of the rainbow including our allies.
You don't have to do this alone. Let's talk about what's going wrong, and how you'd like your life to be better. We'll come up with a plan to get you back on track and back to your life. This is a big step, but you're worth it. Call or email to schedule a first appointment, or a brief consultation to discuss your needs and how I might assist you.
