"Gay men have a unique way of experiencing ourselves and the world from growing up with our individual identities to realizing what it means to live as gay men in our society. I specialize in seeing men who are experiencing anxiety, depression, relationship issues, issues around coming out, and career dissatisfaction. One of the things these symptoms are often tied to is not having complete clarity about who we are and what we want our lives to be about. We will work together to create a deeper understanding of yourself and to clarify your values and what is important to you so that you can conscientiously create the life you desire."

"While they are a vital part of our lives and can bring us so much joy - relationships are complex! Think about it - although people spend years learning and practicing most key skills, many people have had limited opportunity learning about relationships and emotional skills. I work with people who are often very successful in many aspects of their lives, but who get stuck in emotional or relational patterns. They know they desire for things to be different and more satisfying but are not quite sure how to get there. That's where therapy can be a powerful platform for change!"
