LGBT , Relationships/Marriage, Sex, Kink/Fetish, Career Goals, Anxiety/Depression, HIV... Sometimes it can be so easy to sweep things under the rug and deal with it later. The problem is often we have so much going on that we forget to address things that we say we will. This therapeutic practice strongly believes that every person, every situation, and the surrounding circumstances are all unique. Your situation may sound like or seem similar to someone else’s but YOU are the factor that makes yours different, and that’s what the main focus will be; how you can be empowered to explore with me and take solutions into your world.

In my work, I am firmly committed to co-creating a space that is anti-racist, supportive of the LGBTQIA + and disabled communities, and a place where anyone can feel welcome, seen, heard, and valued.
As a couples/partnership therapist, my goal is to understand the positions from each partner in the relationship and to facilitate communication that leads to greater understanding. It is NOT to impose my own views of what your relationship should be or to pick sides. Let me help your couple/partnership, if you are navigating challenges with: Communication, Intimacy, Infidelity, Family/life transitions, and Cultural/Linguistic differences. I am passionate about exploring couples' families of origin, various environments, and identities (each and every aspect of your identities) and how they impact your individual and shared lives.

As a therapist, I've helped thousands of individuals with anxiety, addiction, LGBTQ + issues, depression, ADHD, self-esteem, and more.
Life is a journey. Like all journeys, there are times we feel overwhelmed, tired, confused, or even lost. The most important journey of all is the journey inwards, the one that takes us towards our true self. This journey helps us learn, accept, and embrace who we are. If you're encountering any struggles on your journey in life -- anxiety, depression, life transitions, addiction, coming out -- then I'm here to help.

As an open gay man, I take pride in serving the Florida LGBTQ + community.
Needing to make a big change? Stuck in a job, relationship, or routine? Wanting to “turn the page” and create a new chapter in life but don’t know how to begin? It happens to all of us and there's something we can do. It's called "mental fitness." Just like physical fitness trains our bodies, mental fitness trains our brains to help us respond to life's challenges with a positive mindset to improve performance, lower stress, and build healthy relationships.
