"There is something keeping you from having the happy, fulfilling life you crave. Anxiety about your career is causing performance issues at work. Is it keeping you from enjoying life outside of work? Maybe stress is keeping you from sleeping. Your anxiety is relentless and exhausting. Perhaps a past sexual assault is making it difficult to have the healthy relationship you crave. It is making it hard to trust yourself and others. Or maybe you just can't get over that break-up. You're in a demanding career or caregiver role that has you burned out. You can't get away from low self-esteem and self-doubt. "

"Anything you may be experiencing is easier to manage when you feel understood and supported. When we share our stories, a transformational process begins. I feel privileged to provide a space where it feels empowering and safe to be authentically yourself. I am drawn to working with people from many different backgrounds who find themselves feeling stuck in repeated patterns or emotional reactions, those who are longing for meaningful connections but feel alone, and those who doubt their abilities or self-worth. My focus is on understanding a holistic picture that helps you gain insight and make lasting changes."

"Gay men have a unique way of experiencing ourselves and the world from growing up with our individual identities to realizing what it means to live as gay men in our society. I specialize in seeing men who are experiencing anxiety, depression, relationship issues, issues around coming out, and career dissatisfaction. One of the things these symptoms are often tied to is not having complete clarity about who we are and what we want our lives to be about.

"People engage in therapy for a multitude of reasons. Maybe you are experiencing pain or discomfort- a signal that something requires your attention. Perhaps you're sensing some incongruence in your life, and need a space to tune in. We all get stressed and overwhelmed at times, but if we do not attend to those cues, we can end up causing ourselves more pain in the long-run. Or worse, suffering. Whatever led you here, I encourage you to try and view it as an opportunity for personal growth and development. Sometimes that can be hard to navigate independently; I can help."
