Take a deep breath! Feel at peace knowing that together we will work towards a holistic approach along your journey. Oftentimes, as humans, we are surprised by life’s unexpected turns and are in need of a roadmap to show us the way. That roadmap can consist of dismantling generational traumas, spiritual awareness, empowering one’s self-identity, interrupting pathological patterns, or igniting intimate and family relationships.

Adler’s definition of empathy to see with the eyes of another, listening with the ears of another, and feeling with the heart of another is the philosophical mantra defining my sensitivity to other people's feelings, emotions, and desires. My genuine empathetic relationship with clients and mutual trust are the essential conditions to make therapy successful. I pride myself on being a compassionate listener to individuals who have faced life’s most profound challenges, suffered from mood disorders, experienced trauma, grief, abuse, or relational problems, and suffered multiple stresses, including those related to work and academia.

I offer therapy to adults, particularly individuals who are struggling with life transitions, anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, relationship challenges or identity issues.
As a queer, Latinx cisgender man, it is my passion to support my LGBTQIA+ and POC community in our own collective liberation. Too often counseling can feel like a non-inclusive space, and my work has focused on providing a healing space where clients feel comfortable being their genuine selves, free from judgment and guilt. Sometimes it feels like many of us move through our day wearing a mask to “fit in,” which is a heavy burden to bear. Together we can work towards removing this mask by helping you tap into what already lies within you - a bit of authenticity, a splash of self-compassion, and a healthy dose of empowerment.

Times are stressful to say the least. Identity questions, relationship challenges, loss, past trauma, and anxiety or depression can add to the difficulties in knowing how to cope and find a path forward. I believe in both personal and collective power to change. We can make individual changes and we can change systems. When it feels like you're struggling to hope or find optimism in your situation, I can hold that for you until the day you're able to. I can assist children and youth in learning themselves more deeply. I can support families, as well as couples and partners, through questions, stuck places, or crisis.

My passion is working with both my individual clients and couples to assist them throughout their time of pain and find a path to healing together.
What you are going through matters. Your pain is heavy and weighing you down. Life is not easy to navigate and we all need support from time to time. At first, I will help carry that weight with you while we process the source of your pain, increase your coping skills, confront those intrusive thoughts or all the above. Whatever your unique issue is, know that you have someone that genuinely cares to help you through it. For couples- we will work together to increase communication and conflict resolution skills. If you are both willing to seek therapy together, you have won half the battle already.

Are you struggling with anxiety? Would you like to set more boundaries in your life? Are you a member of the LGBTQIA+ community looking for a Queer-identified, affirming therapist? Is your relationship causing you stress? These are areas I thrive in supporting. Research shows that the success of therapy often depends on the “fit” between the client and therapist.

Couples Counseling Therapists

Does couples counseling work?

Research shows that couples counseling is effective; it can reduce relationship distress and improve emotional awareness, communication, empathy, intimacy, and overall relationship satisfaction. For example, emotionally focused therapy was found to be effective for about 75 percent of couples, and those benefits lasted at least two years.

When should a couple seek counseling?

Couples can benefit from counseling if they consistently struggle in their relationship. They may have lost the ability to communicate effectively, become entrenched in harmful patterns, begun to fight more than usual, broken the other’s trust, suffered from a mental or physical illness, or faced any number of other challenges. Many therapists offer free consultations, so if a couple isn’t sure whether therapy is necessary, asking directly can provide clarity.

How can I get my partner to go to couples therapy?

The decision to seek couples therapy is often driven by one partner, who then convinces the other to participate. When discussing the idea, the initiator should be direct and assertive. They can state the problems they see and explain how the relationship would benefit from therapy. In more serious cases, they can also explain how their relationship may suffer without making any changes or seeking professional help.

How does a couple prepare for couples counseling?

The anticipation of beginning couples counseling can be difficult—sometimes more difficult than the first session itself. Taking a few moments to reflect can allay those concerns: What are the current challenges? When and how did they begin? What do they want the relationship to look like in the future? Reflecting on these questions can help individuals or couples articulate their goals. Of course, the therapist will also ask questions and guide couples through the process.
