I am an ally of the LGBTQ+, kink , and poly communities, and all who have ever felt different, excluded, or alone in their identity.
Welcome. We have all been through a great struggle in the past two years. While every journey through this life is unique, know that you are not alone on the path to seeking wellness. You are taking the critical first step by being here now, taking action to advocate for your own well-being. You are the expert on your own life, but that doesn’t mean you have to navigate it alone. Asking for help is not a sign of weakness, it is a sign of strength and the first step on a journey towards self-acceptance and personal growth.

In addition to offering group therapy and NAMA-certified anger management courses, I am a unique psychotherapist with an intensive treatment approach. We focus on resolving past and current issues, finding solutions and eliciting organic change. If we are not solving your problems, I am wasting your time. My practice goes far beyond talk therapy, we do work. We explore childhood, adolescent and other lifetime trauma that impact current mental health disorders. To address our mental health we must revisit and explore these experiences. I utilize DBT as part of my treatment approach and we engage from the first minute we meet.

Therapy is weird. I get it. You are sharing your secrets with a stranger. The relationship between the therapist and the client is the most important aspect of therapy. I have worked with single mothers, couples, families, children/teenagers, and the LGBT community. After 15 years there is not much I have not seen. I treat my clients like I would want my family members to be treated, with respect, compassion, sincerity and honesty. I also believe therapy can be fun as well as constructive and valuable.

We are all sexual beings. When we are experiencing challenges with our sex life our quality of life is disrupted. People of all ages, genders, ethnic, and religious backgrounds can benefit from sex therapy. My therapeutic style is to customize and treat each patient uniquely through the use of effective talk therapy by using a solution-focused, humanistic approach to work through your sexual challenges. My patients are seen individually or as couples. I am a graduate of Boston University with over 20 years experience in the fields of disability, geriatrics, maternal child health, oncology, & substance abuse.

Currently accepting clients for in person and Telehealth sessions. I enjoy my work as a therapist. The cornerstone of my success is my ability to provide a safe environment, listen intently, and genuinely engage with the individuals and families that I meet. Perhaps you are on the precipice of change, and you just can't take the first step. Maybe you are taking inventory of your life, and you need guidance on how to sum up your past and learn how to make new decisions in this moment with your eyes wide open. Together, we can sort out the transition and help you move toward positive transformation.

I treat a wide range of clients of all genders and sexual expressions for sexuality and relationship concerns. The foundation of my practice was built working with survivors of sexual assault and abuse, helping them transition into holistic sexual health for themselves, as well as sustaining intimate relationships with others. Today my practice still includes working with survivors, though I also see individuals and couples with issues such as compulsivity with pornography/sex, infidelity, fertility concerns, pain disorders, low desire, nontraditional sexual expression exploration and consensual non-monogamy.

I provide support for anxiety, childhood trauma, men’s sexual and mental health concerns, sexual trauma, and sexuality or kink based shame.
Specialized support for men’s sexual and mental health concerns, survivors of childhood trauma and sexual abuse, the LGBTQ+ community, and sexually or relationship diverse individuals. — There are many misconceptions and stigmatizing stereotypes around sex, sexuality, masculinity, and trauma that can make it difficult to seek help. As a gay-identified psychotherapist and sex therapist, I understand this firsthand. I strive to provide a safe space where conversations about difficult topics can occur without fear of judgement or shame.

I specialize in work with the LGBTQ+, consensually non-monogamous, and kink /BDSM communities. Are you worried that most therapists will not truly understand you or that you will have to censor yourself in therapy because of your sexual and/or gender minority status? I had these same concerns and they motivated me to become a psychotherapist who could help others like me. We will work together in a safe and relaxing environment to discover and actualize the solutions you need in order to live a more fulfilling life.

We all know need more self-care, but few of us really know what it is that means. I help clients evaluate what they need to improve their quality of life and identify what is blocking them, whether it is establishing better boundaries, slowing down, building more self-compassion or learning the practice of mindful living. Most of us can benefit from reflection, learning to put space between emotional responses and reactions; and can use a break from thoughts. I help clients evaluate their inner narratives and empower them to build a life that honors their core value system and personal uniqueness.

Healthy is Wealth! Stress is a normal part of life caused by the challenges we face everyday. But when these challenges become overwhelming and lead to excessive crying, sadness, anxiousness, fatigue, or triggers us to abuse food, alcohol, drugs, or engage in risky activities, then it’s time to seek professional help. Negative thoughts/behaviors are your body's "alarm system" to inform you that something is wrong and needs your attention. Left untreated, mental health problems can wreak havoc on your mind and body. Let's talk and see what's going on.

In my opinion, there is no such thing as an ideal client. The human experience is far too vast and varying for one to be considered an ideal therapeutic client. It is my pleasure to engage with any individual who has the strength and awareness to seek mental health treatment and it is my privilege to be allowed into their lives. In my work as a therapist, it is my hope to work with my clients in such a way that encourages and inspires them to pursue their authentic-selves while building healthy, sustainable skills to cope with the myriad of struggles, obstacles, and experiences that life can entail.

People think your life should be good. You have everything you need and most of what you want: material possessions, a career path, a family, friends, or a relationship. Yet behind closed doors something is still missing. Your job brings more stress than satisfaction, you struggle to find contentment in your relationships, or life seems empty after suffering a loss. Maybe life has built roadblocks in your way, or perhaps you suspect you are the one building the barriers.

New patients and referrals often ask me how I practice. My reply is usually that it is up to them! Since I have been trained and have considerable experience in a variety of approaches (cognitive, behavoral, psychodynamic,couple therapy),it really depends on which approach would be most effective and acceptable to them. Because of different personality types, people do not all respond well or the same to only one approach dictated by someones training. Most find this non cookie cutter approach and attention very effective and rewarding.
