I work primarily with adolescents, children, and young adults who have had very difficult experiences and need a safe, playful, and steady partner to explore the impact of these events on their lives. As an out queer clinician I also work regularly with LGBTQIA+ clients who seek a therapist aware of the complexity of those identities in the world, as well as with parents looking to better develop skills to support trans or queer-identified children. I recognize racism and white supremacy as forms of social oppression that provoke traumatic responses and work accordingly with clients who have been harmed by these systems.

Psychotherapy is, most honestly, a very remarkable and often surprising kind of 'conversation.' The distinction being that when we have a 'conversation,' we only know where it will begin, but not where it will end. The 'getting there,' the movement toward 'the end,' is often a thought-provoking, pleasurable, funny, sad, profound experience that changes people in wholly positive ways. When therapist and patient develop a good working relationship, transformative things can happen. My work centers around creating a serious, useful, and private space to begin exploring the depths of what causes you to suffer, or feel misunderstood.

AVAILABLE FOR TELETHERAPY SESSIONS: In facing the world today, people often struggle with the problems of life and living that can manifest through all kinds of physical, psychological and spiritual sufferings. These afflictions can leave the individual emotionally conflicted, terribly confused and questioning what is of ultimate concern. In addition to the individual needing relief from and insight into such dreadful suffering, one may also aspire for greater Self understanding and realization, beyond the constraints of the personal past. Maybe I can help with some of this.

Sometimes we may feel stuck or face challenges that seem insurmountable, while other times we may sense that something is off, but we're not sure what it is. In either case, seeking support from someone outside of the situation can be beneficial. This outside perspective can help us gain clarity, find new ways to navigate and cope with difficulties, and better understand ourselves and our relationships with others. When we're feeling stuck or overwhelmed, seeking support can be a valuable step forward.

With a supportive, interpersonal approach, my goal is to guide you, but not direct you to recognize and then rise above the obstacles that prevent you from thriving in all aspects your life--in work, family & romantic relationships, creativity, and in your own self-development. Since 1996 I have had the opportunity to work with individuals and couples who have struggled with a wide variety of emotional issues. I have found that lasting change comes from discovering the underlying causes of problems, and working together to resolve and reduce your symptoms, while helping you grow towards becoming your most authentic self.

I utilize a humanistic and integrative approach to therapy which first prioritizes the importance of human relationships (the therapeutic alliance) and totality of the human experience (in all its nuance and complexities). My therapeutic framework ensures a client-centered, empathic, and collaborative dynamic is fostered where patients are involved in their own decision making, treatment planning, efforts to self-actualize / self-regulate, and to be self-determined. Together, we will ensure our shared space is safe for honest disclosure, affirming, trauma-informed, anti-oppressive, and which prioritizes your therapeutic objectives.

Male Therapists

As a man, why might I want to see a male therapist?

There are many reasons a man might wish to work with a male therapist, including a degree of shared identity, which may help client and therapist connect to each other and allow for a more free-flowing discussion of issues that can be deeply personal. Some men may feel more comfortable talking to a male therapist about relationship concerns, the pressures they feel around the roles society and family place on men, career or job challenges, self-esteem, or anger problems. For some men who have not had a male role models in their lives, a good male therapist may be especially helpful.

How can I find out about a therapist’s experience treating men?

Individuals looking for treatment should feel comfortable directly asking a therapist about their history treating men overall and the issues that arise in therapy with men. A good therapist will be happy to discuss such matters as well as their educational background, approach to treatment, and how they think they can aid a prospective client. Prospective clients should also ask what the expectation is for treatment, and what the fee structure is, and whether and which insurance plans are accepted.

Can clients benefit from having a therapist of the same gender?

Therapy is not gender-specific, but some men as well as women feel more comfortable opening up about their experiences and history with a male therapist. An individual may feel that they have to explain less background information and be on the same page more quickly, particularly when discussing gender-specific challenges, in the case of male clients. Some women have prior negative experiences with women that predispose them to prefer working with a male in therapy. That said, a good clinician can transcend most if not all gender concerns. Ultimately, the most important factor in therapy is the connection and trust the client is able to build with the practitioner.

Would a male therapist have specific training in treating men?

Generally, no. There are no certifications for treating men specifically, but there are continuing education classes that therapists may take that focus on treating men as a group. There are many therapists who focus on men and male issues in their treatment and therefore have experience and expertise in this domain.
