I center my work on radical acceptance; I create an affirming and engaging therapeutic experience for every unique individual. By exploring your emotions, thoughts, behaviors, and energy—both past and present—we will work together to build an authentic life of meaning and purpose. Together we might question how social norms have squeezed you to conform to narrow ideals, or how you have outgrown your previous selves. I am especially passionate about working with topics of body image among queer men, as well as queer individuals exploring ‘alternative’ sexualities, relationships, and expressions

I work with the challenges of depression, anxiety, trauma, intimacy, relationships, life transitions, and self-esteem through a queer and gender-affirming perspective By examining developmental blueprints, I help you gain insight into patterns that enables greater emotional clarity and momentum towards meaningful change.
While we are all ever-evolving, we can at times feel stagnant or stuck in a loop. By uncovering our patterns and gaining insight into our emotions and life histories, we spark the potential to forge new paths forward. I believe that therapy is a place to feel safe and understood, and I strive to meet my clients with warmth, openness, and curiosity. I view therapy as a collaborative process for you to explore challenges, set goals, define boundaries, and welcome pleasure into your life. In this safe, therapeutic setting, you can experience emotional healing and chart your path forward.

A background in writing and theater has given me a deep interest in the human experience and the ways we endeavor to become our best selves amid uncertainty and adversity. My goal in working with clients is to provide the environment and support that nurtures this vital and very human project of exploring and growing. Therapy is a time to reflect, make meaning, and look forward with a renewed sense of confidence and optimism all while having the space and permission to be your entire self—accepted, affirmed, and valued.

I am queer , Black-biracial, and first-generation American.
Many of us, who are marginalized in society, face more obstacles in finding a safe and grounded sense of self. My goal is to address this injustice by empowering you to find the tools and the drive to live your most fulfilling life. I am particularly interested in working with clients who have felt othered because of their identities. This could mean that you don’t fit the dominant identities that are normalized in our society based on identity markers such as race, religion, or sexuality. It could also mean that you experience your identities as fluid and you feel the pressure of society trying to fit you into a box.

Having served as the Director of Clinical Services at The LGBT Community Center, my work has been focused primarily on gay men’s health and well-being.
Are you experiencing anxiety, depression, feeling overwhelmed or lost? Maybe you feel unfulfilled in your relationships, career, or other key areas of your life. If you are ready to explore these parts of yourself and interrupt patterns that are no longer serving you, then it may be time to engage in psychotherapy. Psychotherapy is a collaborative process which allows us to look at the areas that are causing distress, and identify ways to adjust your thoughts and behaviors to create positive change. I look forward to the opportunity to partner with you along this journey of self-discovery.

I am queer , white, and Jewish.
I have experienced the power and growth that can come from therapy and I aim to create and hold that space for others. I try to facilitate an environment that helps foster growth and introspection and I appreciate the strength it takes to do this work. Pursuing therapy is a courageous act and can be a place where healing is possible. I have a background in theater, which allows me to understand the ways in which we all perform in order to survive. I want to create a space where you can release some of that acting, show up as you are, and feel seen.

I am a queer , trans person of mixed ethnoracial heritage, living with chronic illness.
I enjoy working with individuals of all identities and ages, with a particular interest in providing sexuality and gender-affirming therapy to LGBTQIA2S+ clients of color. More specifically, I am passionate about supporting individuals as they navigate dynamics of intimacy (i.e. consensual non-monogamy, etc.), identity exploration, transcultural experiences, chronic illness, spirituality, life transitions, interpersonal conflict, as well as other stressors that leave many of us feeling isolated, anxious, or hopeless.

I am a biracial, queer man.
I believe that the systems we navigate directly impact our mental health and well-being, and that through recognition and critical consciousness of these influences, we can radically free ourselves. I began working in counseling as a sex and relationship peer counselor during my undergrad. From there, I worked as a crisis hotline worker, in Shanghai, and with the Trevor Project. I believe growing up biracial and queer positioned me well to see how uniquely multifaceted each person is. In my therapy sessions, we will nurture a nonjudgmental and explorative space that allows us to grow together.

My work focuses on working within the LGBTQ community and specializes in working with those struggling with anxiety, depression, identity issues, life transitions, and relationships of all kinds.
I value the privilege of being welcomed into my clients’ lives as we uncover the ways in which their past experiences, environments, and relationships have shaped how they are showing up in the present. I am interested in how the therapeutic process creates the space for clients to acknowledge their struggles and to find the agency to explore solutions collaboratively in an affirming and supportive environment. I believe that you are the expert of your own lived experience; therefore, I want to meet you where you are at with radical acceptance and empathy.``

I have received certifications in Trauma-Focused CBT, Assertive Community Treatment, Motivational Interviewing, and Complicated Grief Therapy, as well as in CPI's OCD, Eating Disorders, and LGBTQ + curricula.
I have had a lifelong passion for sexual health and believe it can be an integral part of our well-being. I hope to help people surmount any obstacles to engaging in the sex they want to have, whether that be due to anxiety or depression, body image or self-esteem issues, challenges with relationships or desire, questions of identity, or sexual difficulties after trauma or STI diagnosis. My goal is to help clients overcome the taboo of talking about sex and sexuality, to free themselves from the sexual shame and stigma that is inherent in our society, and to aid people in finding pleasure in themselves, their bodies, and each other.
