Oftentimes, people just need someone to listen to them, to help them work through an issue, and sort out their feelings. That's where I come in as a licensed psychotherapist as well as a medical social worker. I'm skilled at hearing what people are saying and helping them to figure out strategies for improving their situation. I work with a variety of clients --- men , women and children from all sexualities, gender identities, and races to help them with all sorts of issues. My clientele ranges in ages; however, a majority of my clients are in their early 30's.

I am a gay, cisgender, white man and my pronouns are he/him/his.
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 FOCUS ON MEN "S COUNSELING. Are you a man who feels stuck between anger and numbness? or feeling depressed and don’t know how to deal with it? Do you wish something would change in your relationships, but you don't know what to do or worried it might end? Whether married or divorced, are the roles of a father not what you expected? Men tend to isolate themselves when what they need is someone to talk to. Even if there isn’t a major life event or crisis, if a man has not had a warm, positive, well-attuned relationship with a father, a male therapist can help you uncover what's missing since childhood.

I work with men and women ranging from adolescents to older adults facing issues including relationship struggles, identity exploration, self-esteem, anxiety, and depression.
My goal in therapy is to help you have more satisfying and effective relationships, find a greater sense of stability and empowerment, and discover a greater sense of meaning to your life. Though the work sometimes takes great courage, requires significant hope, commitment, and strength, in my experience it’s well worth it. From the start, I work towards establishing a trusting relationship, communicating clearly and collaborating with you to make sure you are getting what you need.

I work with heterosexuals, gay men , lesbians, bisexuals, and others, including those who choose not to define their sexuality.
My goal is to help individuals and couples recognize and value what's special in themselves, even sometimes finding their strengths in what appear to be weaknesses. I believe self-knowledge and self-acceptance are the best ways out of anxiety, depression, relationship impasses, and other ways of feeling stuck. Getting to know yourself doesn't have to mean looking for "problems." My aim is to help people know and accept all parts of themselves. We're all different and unique. I think learning to value our differences is one of the most helpful things we can do for ourselves.

My practice includes 70% male and 30% female clients.
The ideal client for me is a young, mature, or elder adult who is motivated by their suffering or by their character to learn something new about themselves, to resolve some issue which is causing them anguish or anxiety, or both. Therapy is as much an educational process as a healing process. Both learning and healing are key elements of successful therapeutic collaboration. I am suited to treat any of the specialties designated in my profile. I have network of colleagues through which I make referrals for issues that require specialists' attention such as severe addictive issues or veterans' PTSD.

In an age of ambivalence, avoidance and anesthesia, I recognize a need to slow down, be centered and get mindful of who we are to then decide what we are doing, where we are going and why. For many ( men in particular!), this numbness extends beyond what we do and seeps into our emotional, mental and spiritual lives as we search for ways to be braver, bolder, and better. I employ a balanced mind-body-spirit approach to support those facing “substance” abuse struggles, anxiety/depression, life changes, career moves, relationship issues, grief and general life transitions.

My role as a social worker is heavily influenced by my identity as a queer male psychotherapist and my research interests in intimate partner violence among transgender and gender-nonconforming as well as other sexual minorities.
When collaborating with individuals and couples, I employ an anti-oppressive lens by recognizing how micro- to macro-level systems create a unique and complex lived experience for every client. My values for social justice inform my approach to empowering your personal wisdom as we work to reach your goals and allows room for flexibility in tailoring therapy to create a sacred space. After creating goals, we can set specific and tangible objectives that remind us of the progress that you have achieved and new pathways awaiting discovery.

I have a particular focus on helping men struggling with confidence and assertiveness.
Wouldn't it be great if your therapist didn't just listen to you, but helped YOU listen to yourself? You know, that Self that gets lost among all your responsibilities and commitments and social media and stress and all the things you tell yourself...all that stuff that makes you feel fragmented and overwhelmed. I love helping people discover themselves amidst the noise of life. Understanding yourself is the key to getting "unstuck" and moving towards success, healing, and growth.
