I am a gay psychotherapist, and enjoy and have had success working with both LGBTq and heterosexual adult clients. A warm and supportive environment allows for the gradual development of a professional relationship between client and therapist that can provide an important basis for their work together. Individuals often come into my practice dealing with feelings of depression and anxiety, as well as the impact of trauma, that affect both their ability to have a positive self-image and sense of identity, and to move ahead in their life. I support a client around reducing these blocks in their life.

My approach to therapy is open, supportive, and fosters curiosity instead of judgment. I work to help clients achieve insight about the origins of symptoms, while at the same time providing ways to cope with distressing emotions in the present. Our lives can be full of challenges that leave us feeling sad, overwhelmed, alone, and afraid. Sometimes we are unable to understand why we harbor such feelings. Therapy allows us to sort through our emotions, unhelpful behaviors, and negative self-beliefs so that we can continue on with more clarity, self-assurance, purpose, and happiness.
