If you are LGBTQ+, you may be feeling lost and struggling to find someone who “gets” you. As a queer transgender man, I have a unique perspective into the challenges of navigating our world, and I feel empowered to support folks who are exploring what it means to live as their authentic selves. I’m invested in supporting folks at any age who are like us. I encourage you to bring anything into our sessions so we can process things together. All vibes are welcome with me: if you’re having a particularly difficult day, if you’re nervous about starting therapy, if you feel like you should be able to handle this on you own.

My experience includes addressing trauma/PTSD, substance use/abuse and recovery, anxiety, depression, transgender and gender dysphoria, and LGBTQ+ issues for adolescents and adults as an ally.
Over the past seventeen years as a therapist, one frequent obstacle I have come across is the commute people make for sessions. Having to take an extra hour (or more) of the day to commute, having to find child care, pick up kids from school, or find transportation in the first place often becomes a reason people don’t pursue therapy. Prior to Covid-19 I began working with telehealth and moved towards seeing everyone from their own home to remove this barrier.

I believe that every person comes into therapy with a unique set of strengths. I am passionate about working with adolescents and adults who are members of the LGBTQ* community. I have experience providing services to individuals questioning their gender identities and/or sexual orientations. Mental health, much like sexuality and gender, exists along a spectrum. Things fluctuate and shift, sometimes causing struggle. I aim to help you navigate that struggle and build skills to feel more confident as you work toward improved wellness.

I enjoy helping clients from adolescence through later adulthood heal from difficulty surrounding life transitions, trauma, grief, identity, purpose, and relational challenges. As we move through our lives we are often met with challenges and “negative” emotions. We may feel lost, angry, resentful, anxious, and overwhelmed. Often these feelings are connected to past trauma and loss experiences which interfere with the ability to efficiently resolve current challenges. You are not alone, and you don’t have to face these feelings alone either. I would love the opportunity to join you on your journey to self-actualization.

Although my clients are from all walks of life and situations, I work best when working with someone who identifies as LGBTQIA2S+, non-monogamous, on the kink/BDSM spectrum, and any overlapping identities thereof. My clients are either navigating change in their life (loss of a loved one, changing relationships, etc) or seeking to enact change in their life (reduction of mental health symptoms, building routine, etc). Along the way, they find their way to self-acceptance, self-compassion, and confidence. My clients want to build a collaborative partnership and want to build that partnership via telehealth.

Many of us experience problems in living from time to time, as we manage our intimate relationships, careers, children, financial burdens etc…. Often times, these problems can lead to feeling poorly about oneself or even to feelings of hopelessness or helplessness. Sometimes, these problems reach a magnitude where our level of distress or ability to function is affected. At these times, it can be very helpful to talk to a professional who can provide insight, support and perspective on these difficult issues. Although your issues may seem unmanageable to you now, with the right help, these problems can be overcome.
