Every individual and couple who has ever sought my services worked diligently to navigate life as best as they can until they reached an impasse. They feel depleted, frustrated, confused, unfulfilled. Stuck. This is human, and I view those seeking my services as individuals, not diagnoses. Therapy is at its core, conversational. As such, my primary aim is to create a setting in which it is as comfortable as possible to explore the most sensitive areas of your life. Some of the primary issues I treat are depression, work stress, anxiety, substance use, trauma, life transition.
I believe in client strengths and follow their lead as their own best experts. I identify as a cis gay male and describe my approach as humanistic, trauma informed, curious, collaborative, sex positive, kink affirming, poly affirming. I'm a strong ally of the trans community. I think flexibly and utilize harm reduction as a general framework.
Every story is unique and deserves to be told. And the goal of therapy is to reshape our stories throughout our lives to create one with ever deepening authenticity, depth, connection, meaning and beauty. I’m honored to be part of your process and look forward to creating a new story with you.
