I believe that healing often occurs best in the context of a safe and trusting relationship between a client and therapist. As a psychotherapist, I strive to create a secure, caring, and collaborative relationship with each of my clients so that therapy is a place they feel fully seen, heard, understood, and respected. I work from an integrative and holistic perspective, meeting each client where they are and working collaboratively with clients to reach their own personal goals and to create lasting, meaningful change and healing in their lives.

It's a terrible feeling to be awake at 3 am because your mind is flooded with worries. Your worry may have started as small, but then it lead to another worry... Suddenly, your worries feel overwhelming. You feel shaky and unsettled. It's hard to concentrate on anything but your worry and that restless feeling in your body. You tell yourself, "Just stop worrying about it." You want to let go, but you just can't figure out how. It's hard to not beat yourself up.

I take a holistic view of clients, build upon inherent strengths, and create a partnership to guide and facilitate change, making progress toward goals. I work really well with movers + shakers, helpers + makers: goal-oriented, organized types, as well as caregivers and creatives. I am trauma-informed, apply intersectional, feminist, and body and sex positive lenses, and incorporate harm reduction principles. Though I launched an IOP program at a premier LGBTQ+ health center and am experienced and knowledgable supporting the diversity of our community, I am also cognizant of my lived experience as a cisgender gay male.

The psychotherapy I do is depth-oriented, offered in a safe and peaceful setting, where we can build your sense of inner peace. We will uncover your family legacy, as well as the maladaptive patterns you are living that underlie your suffering. Within that context, we will practice mindfulness of the present moment and unhook you from the influences of the past. We can work to improve your relationships, clarify your life goals and help you find a sense of ease and confidence in yourself. If you are depressed and/or anxious, we will find the ways to release you from emotional pain and move toward personal fulfillment.

Therapy helps people to change their lives, most fundamentally through a connection to their therapist. As a therapist, I listen closely during sessions, paying careful attention to how overlapping social oppressions, collective histories and past life experiences emerge in the present. I attend to a patient's need to speak their mind, to be heard and understood. At the same time, I remain alive to what may be unsayable, and why. Throughout the course of therapy, we work to make sense of the dynamics that shape lived experience and to make difficult thoughts and feelings both sayable and survivable.

My areas of interest include trauma recovery, sexuality, and personal identity. I work from a harm reduction lens, and believe in each individual’s right to self-determination. Therapy is collaborative. The client is the expert on their own experience and should be in control of their healing process. Because of this belief, I approach therapy from a place of respect and humility. It is important to me not to pathologize clients. Rather, I work with each client to unpack how the past is present in a non-judgmental atmosphere.

“Life is Difficult”. One of my favorite opening sentences from M. Scott Peck’s book, The Road Less Traveled. But…it does not always have to be. I applaud and welcome anyone seeking help with therapy and embrace the opportunity in getting to know, witness, and work with you as we join in this process and journey together. I am honored to work with clients who are willing to challenge life's situations to find that road less traveled. I have worked extensively with addiction(s), dual diagnosis, trauma, anxiety, stress, depression, grief and loss, women's issues, relationships, codependency, parenting, and life changes.
