"Gay men's issues require a compassionate, yet solution-focused approach from a counselor who personally understands gay relationships and culture. Gay relationships thrive off of a healthy balance of spontaneity, healthy sexual connection, and honest communication. Gay men reach their full potential when they effectively resolve childhood trauma (including attachment trauma, abuse, or shame), build a healthier relationship with self, and form healthy connections with others; There can be many barriers to achieving this, such as sex addiction, substance abuse, depression, co-dependency, social anxiety, and PTSD.

"I have maintained a private practice providing individual, couple, and group psychotherapy in the Los Angeles area for the last 21 years. Life is not easy, and sometimes it gets really hard. But the measure of success is how we cope with life's challenges. I believe that therapy is at its core simply a relationship between two people, one of whom shares those life concerns which are most pressing, painful, or frustrating, while the other is genuinely committed to helping understand those concerns and to facilitating the personal changes most desired."

"I believe therapy is meant to be experimental, experiential, and collaborative. Carl Jung said, "The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed." Insights in therapy have the potential to be challenging, but the results are worth the journey. My style one of a spirit of non-judgment, empathy, directness, and sense of humor.

"Most of us come into therapy seeking change. Maybe we hurt too much, feel lonely, depressed, anxious, or hate our job. Our relationship might be faltering or we're feeling overwhelmed by the family. What I've learned is that we come into therapy thinking that we have one story, or narrative, and that narrative is set and fixed. I believe we've forgotten that we have a multitude of stories, or alternative narratives. Those alternative narratives can be discovered and shed light on new options and possibilities, while expanding our understanding of what we once believed was unalterable."

"Although "pain" is something we would like to avoid, it is an inevitable part of life. But the positive aspect of painful experiences is that they can provide the opportunity to change... change that helps us grow and transform ourselves, bringing our lives a deeper sense of meaning. It is often very difficult to recognize these positive life changing opportunities while in the midst of profound pain or even after it subsides but that is where therapy can help. Collaborative work in therapy can facilitate awareness, promote healing, and illuminate paths for change leading to a more meaningful relationship with yourself and others..."

"Whenever I "close" during the final session with my clients, I always survey them and ask for feedback about what "worked" and "didn't work" for them about me as their therapist. I primarily get the responses such as "you were a full participant", "You gave a lot of feedback", "You were really present". So I would say that I am a very "active" therapist. I don't simply mirror back what you've said to me. I believe the process is collaborative and exploratory in nature; and, I give LOTS of feedback!"
