About

Do other therapists seem judgmental? Don't understand? Won't listen to you? If you need to talk about anything and everything, clients tell me I have a strong capacity for compassion, empathy, and care. At the same time, I’m forthright and candid. I see you and hear you—a whole person (body, mind, spirit) living in an interactive and interconnected world. I believe you're the expert in you--even if you're not yet aware of it. My role is to help you find that, and bring my own holistic vision, experience, training, expertise, and tools to the table, so you can work to be the best possible version of you.
I integrate depth/meaning psychotherapy, evidence-based tools, sex therapy, coaching, counseling. Expertise: sexual & gender diversity, erotic pleasure, relational intimacy, honesty, breaking the drug-sex link, men (cis & trans), masculinities, men's sexuality, discovering/ owning/ exchanging power, ethical alternative relationships, Kink/Fetish/BDSM.
We'll form a deep therapeutic alliance to discover, encounter, address, and surpass the obstacles keeping you in distress or recapitulating trauma. Total confidentiality. Experience in social, sexual, and mental health & education over three decades. Almost a decade of direct therapy work. Based in California & Illinois; teletherapy only in Florida.
