Therapy can lead to better relationships and more ease in our lives. I work with individuals and couples to find more clarity and balance in their lives. Sometimes we avoid parts of our life or ourselves that are painful. Together we will get to know these hurt parts and how they show up, whether it is through fears and worries, the critical voice you hear inside, or a feeling of being stuck, lost, alone or helpless.

Couples, Individuals, and Workplace Relationships and Behaviors. My work with solution-focused theories uses evidenced-based tools to create healthy empowering habits. These tools become the client's successful daily practices. Clients then develop a Gestalt Life experience. Increasing confidence, strategy, and communication skills are important to settling other issues. My clients are dealing with their anxiety, ambivalence, inertia, and/or conflict with others in family, couple, individual, and professional relationships.

Psychotherapy provides a unique space for you to explore your experience in life in a profoundly important way. In a culture that does not make space for "negative emotions", and idealizes independence, there is little room to get to know the parts of ourselves that we imagine others will not approve of. When we aren't in touch with all aspects of our humanity, effectively shutting out parts of our experience, we can find ourselves feeling confused, depressed and/or anxious, having trouble in relationships with others, not enjoying our work, having difficulty processing grief and loss, or struggling with issues related to our identity.

We were born to connect with ourselves and others, to be alive in our bodies and awake in the world, and to anchor into a sense of purpose. Painful experiences and negative patterns can disconnect us from our innate ability to full-heartedly live life. When you are stuck, dissatisfied in relationship, challenged by life transition, constrained by depression or anxiety, unable to heal from trauma, or simply feeling called to step more fully into your best self, therapy can be a powerful ally. I offer tools you can use to reconnect with your own power, agility, and direction.

As a gay man, I know what it’s like to worry about whether your therapist is truly allied. It’s crucial that you feel safe in order for therapy to be effective, and that’s why my practice is dedicated to helping LGBTQ people. Here’s a little about my style: I strive to create a warm, open space in which you can freely explore what is coming up for you. You're the expert on you, so I ask lots of questions.
