"Gay men have a unique way of experiencing the world from discovering our individual identities and through 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."

"Sometimes life can get rough. Relationships can feel disconnected or heavy with resentment and distrust. Sex and intimacy can get lost in the shuffle of every day. Babies can come along making life feel completely out of control. Through it all, maybe you feel like you just don’t have what it takes, or you feel stuck in cycles of worry, sadness or loneliness. Here’s the good news: CHANGE IS POSSIBLE. Better yet, you have within you what it takes to make it happen. Together through therapy we can work to identify, challenge and reimagine the undesirable aspects of your life and relationships, making space for something better."

"The step to enter into counseling is a courageous one, it encompasses your willingness to connect, to be vulnerable, and to seek hope in healing. I see counseling as a way for clients to make change, to liberate one’s self from patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving that may not be serving you effectively. These patterns are often imposed by society, family, and ones' own culture and/or gender. Counseling is a space to help navigate all that comes with life’s changes. In practice, I specialize in anxiety, depression, grief/loss, OCD, relationships issues, job change/loss, and other adjustment related stressors."
