As a gay man I strongly support empowerment of women.
I help people who are feeling overwhelmed get back on track. I assist young adults anxious about work or life who need support and tools to move ahead. Clients of all ages may be going through challenges or life transitions - career, divorce, medical issues, retirement - that show up as anxiety or depression or just feeling stuck. We'll explore what's not working and I'll help you make changes so life can be better. If this is your first time working with a psychotherapist, I'll do my best to explain how therapy works. Good counseling is always a collaboration.

I also have specialized experience working with LGBTQ teens and adults.
Many clients come to me with concerns about important relationships in their lives--sometimes a partner or spouse, but also relationships with parents, siblings, or children. Many of my clients want to improve their relationship with their own selves. I've learned over the years that when our relationships are going well, then the rest of our life is probably going well, too. But, when relationships falter or end, life can seem pretty terrible. Together, let’s discover the patterns that are interfering with your relationship to yourself or the important people in your life.

I work with a wide range of adolescents and adults, in particular those in the LGBTQIA community who are seeking to understand and accept themselves. This process involves self-discovery, understanding and self-acceptance. We work through associated issues such as shame, guilt, low self - esteem, school bullying, verbal/physical abuse, discrimination and the lack of family and societal support. I also help clients navigate possible conflicts of spirituality and personal values with their sexual orientation/gender identity.

Are you having trouble with anxiety, depression, career concerns, or addiction recovery? All of the issues above - and more - can often be addressed through counseling. I believe that the perception and function of counseling has evolved rapidly in recent years. More and more people are finding counseling beneficial for not only solving specific problems or dealing with crises, but also for developing more fulfilling and enriching lives.

Aside from my academic training, my psychotherapy approach is also informed by my own queer identity, my multicultural immigrant background, holistic spirituality, my independent mythological studies, social justice, and the realities of people of working class and low socio-economic experiences.
As a psychotherapist, my goal is to create a safe space, through whereby building a relationship, unraveling issues, demystifying oneself, voicing hopes and dreams, and developing wisdom and insight, one can emerge from (and exist in) the forest that is life with a deeper understanding of how to navigate oneself and the world around us. It is my philosophy that great psychotherapy not only addresses the issues on the table, but also guides one towards greater overall life fulfillment.

Is your son depressed or anxious? Do they have trouble in social settings? Life can get difficult as a teen and young adult male. There are a lot of transitions going on in life and lots of things you have to figure out. You have to navigate new schools, new groups of friends, and figuring out your own identity. Add on top of that you might be part of the LGBT community and you have a lot of issues to navigate. All of these things can be difficult to deal with. Maybe these things have led to anxiety or depression.

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.

"Just so you know, my eyes don't see the person you used to be, I only see the person you are fighting to become". This defines the work I do daily with my clients. The willingness to face things you want to change, is all it takes. Fear is expected as change comes, however we can work on coping skills to diminish the fear and anxiety you have. I will support you with empathy and compassion along the pathway to healing. "Peace does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart". Peace in your soul is Possible, let me help you.
