I have particular expertise addressing LGBT topics, men's issues, topics of identity and oppression, as well as supporting clients with relationship and interpersonal style concerns.
My PhD training as a counseling psychologist affords me flexibility to support multiple life concerns, and at the root of my work is the belief that relationships are capable of healing. I build strong alliances with those whom I serve in order to best meet client directed goals and foster sustained change. I adhere to evidence-based practices in psychology, and research evidence strongly supports the importance of building a strong therapeutic alliance. Everyone has a unique lens through which they see the world and I strive to see the world as my clients do to provide the best care.

I center Queer folks, particularly gay men in recovery, trans folks, and non-binary individuals experiencing dysphoria, internalized shame, and survivors of systemic and interpersonal oppression.
I deeply value creating brave, affirming spaces free of shame for clients to discover their authentic selves. I invite you to show up as you are with all the complexities that have left you labeled as ‘difficult’, ‘untreatable’, or feeling unworthy of healing and growth. I work from a non-pathologizing approach, meaning we will look beyond diagnoses and work on the root causes of issues present in your life. I am an advocate for self-compassion and believe humor and authenticity are the elements to a nurturing relationship; these tools are paramount to the way I engage in a therapeutic relationship.

Additionally, I particularly enjoy working with clients who identify as members of the LGBTQ + community (as I too identify as a member myself).
I believe in a holistic approach to therapy, and I do my best to ensure that treatment is tailored specifically to each client. I do not follow a “one-size-fits-all” approach. As a therapist, I emphasize the therapeutic relationship between the client and therapist, as I believe that this the foundation and key to successful therapy.
