Announcement icon I have openings for tele-therapy (video or phone sessions) & would be honored to support you during this challenging time. Free phone intake
I come from the heart. I'm here to help you feel safe and secure. I am here to go on a journey with you to find your true self, to lift depression, to work with anxiety, and transform this time of crisis into stronger relationships and more heart-felt productivity. As a gay, Jewish man, I have an ear for all people struggling with difference and oppression. I can go deep with you into healing old trauma. Or I can help you coach you with day-to-day career and relationship challenges. If you need a therapy to jump-start new growth in the New Year, I am here for you on that quest of both self-discovery and seeing more palpable results.
I founded the Antioch University LGBT Specialization and Colors LGBTQ Youth Counseling Center in 2006. I I have spent the last 25 years training therapists as a professor at Antioch University. My training has helped me feel into a great affinity with people of color, women, LGBTQ people, Hollywood folk, and heterosexual men wanting new answers.
From the heart, we can make dynamic change. I will not play the passive therapist, but will engage you in a conversational way. I will check-in with each session. Your goals are key. Taking into account Covid precautions, we can meet in person in my office or connect by Zoom or FaceTime. Feel free to call me to see if I might help.
