ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS!!! My approach to counseling is guided by the values and principles of psychiatric rehabilitation; which in essence, honors and respects the dignity, rights, strengths, uniqueness, and beauty in all individuals. The healing process is rooted in establishing a foundation of trust, hope, and safety. Once the foundation is laid is when the healing can begin.

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.

There are many events that send us looking for answers in therapy. Some need information to address a new situation, some feel blocked from doing what they desire, some feel pushed to do things they don't want to do, some feel prevented from doing something they know would benefit them. We all struggle, no one's life is perfect. It's what we make of our circumstances that make us who we are. We isolate our "Genuine Self" then work towards defining the "Desired Self", that part of self that is capable of maintaining happiness. By increasing our awareness we can reach any goal, embracing change as we evolve.
