Most of my clients' challenges stem from childhood trauma and negative pattern of thought, which typically leads to depression, anxiety and other trauma based symptoms. Clients are looking for a therapist who validates them and shows empathy, while being direct and honest. I try to ensure a safe-space for my clients, where we work together to prioritize their mental health so they can feel empowered in their life. I create a safe, trusting, and non-judgmental space where clients can share their unique struggles and change any maladaptive thoughts that might be holding them back.

Life can give us experiences of fun and excitement. At the same time, there are periods where day-to-day life becomes overwhelming. When these waves of overwhelm arrive, we can experience difficulty identifying ways to deal with our feelings. We may struggle in naming what we are feeling and subsequently experience a sense of impossibility and helplessness. Through my work with individuals and couples, I developed a repertoire of interventions to guide my clients who are struggling with relational issues, depression, anxiety, trauma , and emotional dysregulation.

I have experience working with both children and adults who have experienced trauma including: neglect, physical, emotional, and sexual abuse.
Therapy is a process of self-exploration and discovery; by engaging in a mutually respectful relationship you and I can create opportunities for understanding, growth, and answers. I believe in a collaborative, goal oriented approach to resolving and overcoming a variety of life stressors. We will work together to develop your insight into the way you form and engage in relationships, function in the face of pressure or other life distress, and prevail over intrusive thoughts or worries.

My areas of interest include anxiety, depression, self-esteem/body confidence, trauma / PTSD , and grief.
I strive to build meaningful and impactful relationships with anyone who decides to begin individual or couples therapy with me. As we are developing our therapeutic relationship, I seek to understand and demonstrate respect for your identities, your perspective of the world, and to provide a therapeutic space that empowers you to find peace, balance, and security within. You and I will set the tone of our sessions. Our sessions will open and close with open-ended questions, “temperature checks”, recaps, or debriefs in which we will both express whatever concerns, emotions and thoughts come before or during conversation.

I specialize in working with adults who are experiencing anxiety, depression, grief, trauma , relationship/dating distress, complex family dynamics, and difficult transitions.
I believe that just because we can navigate life’s challenges alone, doesn’t mean we should have to. It takes strength and courage to seek support, and in my style of genuine and empathic connection, I actively engage individuals in an insight-oriented therapeutic experience. Together we will build tools to navigate daily challenges, as well as draw connections to past experiences and how they impact your present. My goal is to help you access and trust your internal compass, strengthen resiliency, and find growth and fulfillment.

I can use EMDR to treat trauma , as well as mindfulness approaches.
I believe in building collaborative relationships with my clients. Many of the people who come to see me are insightful and know that certain behaviors or symptoms of depression, stress or anxiety are holding them back. We will work together to both help you develop better coping and self-esteem, as well as developing a better understanding of your issues and problems. Cognitive-behavioral therapy and DBT can help with this. For more information on my background please visit the "credentials" page on my website.

I am certified in EMDR, which is highly effective in resolving the aftereffects of trauma and negative self-beliefs.
When you are feeling depressed or overwhelmed, you may feel that you have few options. You may feel even worse if you are drinking more than usual or engaged in other compulsive behaviors. I will help you see that you have choices and that you can start acting and thinking in ways that make your vision of a satisfying life a reality. I am solution-focused and although I believe psychotherapy is a process, I am comfortable working with a short-term model as well as in a more ongoing way. I believe in being direct while remaining empathic.

I identify as a cis gay male and describe my approach as humanistic, trauma informed, curious, collaborative, sex positive, kink affirming, poly affirming.
Every individual and couple who has ever sought my services worked diligently to navigate life as best as they can until they reached an impasse. They feel depleted, frustrated, confused, unfulfilled. Stuck. This is human, and I view those seeking my services as individuals, not diagnoses. Therapy is at its core, conversational. As such, my primary aim is to create a setting in which it is as comfortable as possible to explore the most sensitive areas of your life. Some of the primary issues I treat are depression, work stress, anxiety, substance use, trauma , life transition.
