Although I'm not taking new clients at this time, I do supervise and oversee similarly-minded clinicians at our clinic. Please see our website if you would like to connect about scheduling with one of these therapists. Our approach to therapy is informed primarily by psychodynamic principles. The emphasis is on creating a safe, supportive environment in which to explore and develop insights into underlying feelings and thoughts. Together we will uncover deeply held assumptions that, although may have been useful at one time, today reinforce ways of coping in the world that are no longer effective or relevant.

Have you ever wondered about your adoption story? Has there ever been doubt, fear, anger, pain or confusion when it comes up? What’s it been like for you to process your personal experience of birth family, loss, grief, race, identity, or even those seemingly benign curiosities about your narrative that come up from time to time? For parents, of course you want to help your children as they embark on that path. This can often feel uncertain or overwhelming, with so many subtle nuances that feel way too complicated to handle without appropriate support.

You may be feeling overwhelmed by emotions, inadequate at work or in your relationships, or are struggling to find direction or purpose in your life. Parenting may, too frequently, leave you feeling depleted, anxious, or angry. Maybe a new job or relationship is creating doubts about your self-worth. Perhaps you have been under an unmanageable amount of stress for so long that you have started to feel hopeless and disengaged from your life. Facing these challenges can feel scary, and struggling with these scenarios can make you feel alone.

Depression and anxiety can impede our careers, relationships, self confidence, success and happiness. If you feel unmotivated, disappointed in self or others, envious, or unsure of yourself, there may be powerful root causes lying just outside your awareness. Often I can help, even if other attempts have failed. How do you choose a therapist? Training and experience matter. I trained at Stanford and Columbia, finished 2 postdoctoral fellowships, completed full psychoanalytic training, and have practiced for 25+ years. While therapy is never a quick fix, it can lead to greater success and happiness. Offering teletherapy nationwide.

At Geekery and Growth I focus on working with fellow adult geeks, nerds, and misfits. As a gay geek myself, I enjoy working with the LGBTQIA2S communities, and find that there is a significant overlap between the geek and queer communities. I am also passionate about helping people who are trauma survivors learn how to build or rebuild a life that reflects who they are and what they want. Because I focus on working with adults, I currently only offer evening appointments, and because I offer appointments via telehealth, you can do therapy anywhere you have privacy and an internet connection so it is easier to fit it in your life.

I see life as a mosaic of experiences, and we all do the best we can with what we know at the time. But sometimes, anxiety, depression or the simple challenges of daily life can hold people back from living the fullest, best story of their life. My goal as a therapist is to explore and bring to light a person’s inner strengths, so they can overcome their personal obstacles and enjoy better, more productive lives and relationships. Everyone, regardless of life’s stumbles, deserves the best life they can imagine, and my goal is to walk with them and help them along this journey.

When I think about my ideal clients, I think about all the folks I used to serve as a sex educator. Having spent the past 10 years in sex education, I believe that many of us carry cultural stigma due to sex negative ideals perpetrated by our society. As a therapist I specialize in working with: Kinky clients, non-monogamous clients, clients that work within the sex industry, and clients that are figuring out their sexuality. My ideal clients are looking for a therapist that is affirming of their relationship with sexuality and who will not shame you for your sexual identity.

You're sure the average therapist can't handle or accept you, because that's what you get everywhere else you go. School, work, almost everywhere, it's been an uphill struggle to fit in and feel understood -- IF you even bother anymore. If you DO find YOUR people, YOUR tribe, you spend the whole time secretly terrified they'll figure out you're not good enough and kick you out. You've been burned a few too many times, which just reinforces your belief that you'll never belong. All that rejection and pain sits in your body and spirit, grinding you down every day. But there's still part of you that believes you can find your place.

Are you not living your life the way you would like to? Is your interpersonal life not what you'd like it to be? Are you unsatisfied in your partner relationship in particular? I believe I can help. As an individual therapist, my goal is to create a safe, trusting, respectful, and nonjudgmental environment in which we can engage in a process of collaborative reflection aimed at helping you become more connected with all parts of your self. In this process, we can work together to understand how and why you relate as you do with yourself and others.
