Although pain is a human experience, it often has the power to alienate us from ourselves and others. Perhaps you’re in the midst of relational distress, trying to make sense of systemic oppression, grieving the loss of a loved one or replaying past traumas. Whatever you carry, I am honored to walk with you in re-imagining a life where pain does not hold the final word in dictating who you are or where you want to go. My past clinical experience has focused on working with diverse individuals who have experienced trauma, depression, anxiety, grief, relationship and identity issues. I specialize in working with BIPOC clients.

Are you struggling to live the life you want? Are you feeling sad, anxious, angry, or frustrated with your current situation? If so, I'd love to help! Through our work together, you can lead a happier, healthier and more fulfilling life. I work hard to create a compassionate and safe environment that fosters personal growth and lasting change. During therapy, I challenge clients through open and active dialogue and observations. At times, I also find a hugely important part of my work involves helping clients accept what they cannot change to free themselves from being stuck in the past.

As a therapist, I believe that my work is to help others locate the strength, courage, self-compassion, and tools to create the life they want. Pleasure is a vital part of our human experience, and I am interested in how identity, cultural background, history, trauma, gender, identity, ability, and relationships help us experience it in a way that feels profoundly personal, empowering, and connected to others.

Are you hoping to better communicate, manage conflict and revamp your connection with your partner? Or are you in the midst of a major life transition? My clients struggle like you. Despite their brilliance, creativity and drive, the pressures of adapting to life's changes or communicating with their partner seem overwhelming. Before my clients came to see me, they figured that it was “too late” to make a change, and their life “is what it is.” They feared that if they took any drastic steps to improve their lives, it would be considered “selfish.” The fear of change, but also the fear of never changing created tension and anxiety.

We all want to feel valued, and to work, play, and love well. Many of us get frustrated and confused when we feel blocked in one or more of these areas. My role as a therapist is to help you build awareness about what is keeping you stuck, and to open new perspectives and possibilities in your life. I work with adults on a variety of issues, including anxiety; depression; climate-related grief and anxiety; relationship problems; food and body issues; life transitions, and issues relating to hearing loss.

Brené Brown says that “sometimes the bravest and most important thing you can do is just show up.” My clients are those who want to show up for themselves. They are often deeply-feeling, highly-sensitive people who have struggled to integrate all parts of themselves, but who are ready to experience the confidence that comes from owning painful chapters of their stories. My clients have often survived trauma and want to meet their past in a way that opens up freedom for their future. In other words, my clients are brave change-makers who haven’t yet fully realized that their sensitivity is perhaps their greatest superpower.

I work with men on the internal issues that are showing up in their lives. When relationships fray, affairs or divorce happens, layoffs, depression, stress, anger or numbness rear their ugly heads - it can be time to stop and figure out what needs to be addressed. As a man - a father, a son, a husband, a brother, a friend myself - I am acutely aware of the internal worlds of men, and the external rules that often keep us from talking about what is going on inside.

You dream of a life that feels peaceful and exciting, challenging yet manageable, connected and secure. You know where you want to be, you’re just not sure how to get there yet. You might say “I’m sorry” more than you’d like to, feel frustrated that caring for yourself is so much harder than caring for others, or worry that you'd be a burden if you shared what you're really feeling. Maybe it's been like this for a while. One thing is sure: you’re ready for relief. You’re ready for more ease, playfulness, and joy. You’re ready to feel more connected to your loved ones. Most of all, you’re ready to look to the future with hope.

Waitlist for new clients
I work with guys in hi-tech, mostly software engineers and managers, who struggle with some sort of anxiety &/or depression, often brought on by things like workplace stress, relationship problems, or big life transitions (like having a baby). My typical client leads an engaged life of achievement and focus, and he usually feels on top of things. But then life has come along and hit him with something his well-developed intellect can't quite handle. The result is that he feels stalled and filled with self-doubt - something he is unaccustomed to and often deeply uncomfortable with.

I have been working in the mental health field for over twenty years. Throughout that time I have worked in a variety of settings, all of which have given me a wealth of experience to draw upon. I have always had a passion for the work of psychotherapy, which I feel is ultimately about inner exploration and transformation. Most people come to psychotherapy because they feel like they are stuck in some way. Having another mind and perspective can help to get things moving where they once were stuck. With a spirit of curiosity and collaboration I work with my patients to seek out what may be obstructing their continued growth.

Reading through therapists’ bios to assess compatibility can be quite an overwhelming process. You might not even know what you’re looking for. What you probably do know is that something feels off in life and you’re looking for some help. As a therapist, I am, first and foremost, a human with my own personality in the therapy room. I can say that I take humanistic and psychoanalytic approaches, using cognitive theoretical orientations when I think it’s helpful- but I think it can be hard to understand what that means or what it would look like.
