I help adult gay men live without fear, pain, confusion, and self-destructive behaviors. Their symptoms of depression, anxiety, trauma, shame, and self-loathing get in the way of the life they want to live. They worry I will judge them for how they are living their lives. However, they want to overcome their inner limitations, use of drugs, porn, "dating" apps, overachieving, and live a life with deeper connections, real freedom, and dignity.

Each individual has the ability to make healthy changes to address areas they find of concern. Dealing with these life challenges on your own can be very difficult. Fortunately, counseling can help. My specialties include but are not limited to, depression, addiction, anxiety, codependency, and anger management. I have much experience with the gay and lesbian population. I work from a client centered, eclectic and humanistic model to address your individual needs. We will collaborate and develop a treatment approach that will best address your needs.

Life is not always as we expect or even plan it. Often times, we find ourselves struggling with the ever-changing world around us.

Reach out, allow someone who is experienced in working through some of the toughest challenges you might be facing to walk beside you and give you the space to talk out and process those challenges. Let's create a space for you to open up and share without fear of judgement or shame!

Adult transgender clients will not be subjected to excessive gatekeeping.
Finding the right therapist is important. I have been practicing for over 32 years. Experience has taught me what works. My approach is flexible, down to earth and free of trend-driven techniques. Working with a non-judgmental therapist who understands you is essential, especially If you have concerns regarding sexuality. I am also a gender specialist who supportively assists transgender adults, adolescents, and their parents. Other specialties include interpersonal relationship issues, compulsive behavior, depression, anxiety, and grief/loss. I work well with people who value a confidential, personalized, and integrative approach.

Congratulations on taking the first step- it’s often the hardest! We all seek happiness, self-gratification and inner peace; and at times we all need support getting there.

I have a speciality in working with LGBTQIA + individuals, especially GNC and transgender folks. I am licensed to treat people in about 25 states. This means if you relocate for college or other life circumstances, you can maintain continuity of treatment.

I also specialize in working with the LGBTQIA community.
My approach to therapy is compassionate and respectful. In addition to gaining greater understanding of your self, therapy is an opportunity to learn specific skills and techniques for meeting your goals and feeling better. I value therapy as a time to face difficulties and break free from unsatisfying ways of feeling, thinking, or being in relationships with others. As a clinical psychologist, I am experienced in helping clients struggling with anxiety, low mood, painful or intense emotions, problems in close relationships, and self-criticism.

LGBTQIA + couples welcome.
Are you feeling stuck in a difficult circumstance or a relational conflict? Do you find yourself limited by fear, anxiety, lack of motivation or clarity? Are you discerning whether or not to stay in a current relationship? This can be a painful space. I believe we all have access to deep, still waters within us that can guide and direct us to deeper peace and clarity. Sometimes, we struggle to access that "knowing part" of us. I have 20 years of helping guide men, women, couples, adolescents and families gain skills and find deeper, more peaceful waters in seasons of grief, anxiety, depression, divorce & couple's conflict.

My clients have included domestic and sexual violence survivors, incarcerated offenders, and LGBTQ + individuals, among others.
Traumatic experiences can take a heavy toll, and not just in the moment. Symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or complex PTSD (CPTSD) can last for weeks, months, even years after the event. I am passionate about helping adolescents and adults heal from the effects of trauma so that you can reclaim your vitality, and establish a genuine sense of connection with yourself, others, your body and your soul. While my therapeutic approach is eclectic, Somatic Experiencing (SE) is foundational to my work. SE is a body-oriented and naturalistic approach to the resolution and healing of trauma, developed by Dr. Peter Levine.

Worried moms & frazzled dads, look no further! Maybe your child/teen is anxious, worried, sad, angry, or acting out. You've tried empathy, rewards, punishments, extra attention, special privileges. You've read books, consulted parenting blogs, & asked other parents for advice. Whatever you try, it may even work for a few days but then all the old problems come right back. Maybe your boy wants to dress like a girl and it's freaking you out. Maybe your teen declares "I'm queer "--what does that even mean? Let's add the stress of Covid-19, and you're exhausted, frustrated, and worried about your child's future.

For those of us in the LGBTQ + community, it can be challenging to find comfort and safety in a world that is often negating—and even hostile—toward queer people. Psychotherapy can provide a new sense of hope for each of us. Current research indicates that the single greatest factor leading to successful outcomes in therapy is the relationship between client and therapist. We can create a safe space together. I’ll work with you to create and foster a safe, compassionate, judgment-free therapeutic space for you to breathe, think, explore and be heard.

I have had the pleasure of working with a varied clientele. For many years I have built rapport with and facilitated the progress of youth who are on the spectrum, who have attention disorders, who struggled with emotion regulation, who are mute, who are transgender , and have exhibited self-harming behaviors. I have also worked with families as a parent coach and as a provider of psycho-education. Many of my adult clients have had issues with abandonment, attachment, trauma, and self-harm. The goals I have facilitated my clients progression in are myriad. However, one goal most of my clients aspire to attain is self-love.
