• Improving Intimate Relationships

    Develop skills to feel safe and connected in intimate partnerships. I specialize in gay relationships, consensually non monagamous relationships, and break ups.
  • Work Stress Relief

    Learn techniques that lead to relief from work stress. I specialize in issues of burnout, career development, relationships with co-workers, supervisors, and direct reports, and therapy for those who work in tech and healthcare.
  • LGBTQ+ Therapy

    My experiences as a gay identified male and as a proud member of the larger LGBTQ family tune me into many invisible stressors of gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans, and queer clients. I’m skilled, experienced, and intuitive in providing a safe space for LGBTQ life experiences.

A note on power, privilege, and identity

I am a white bodied, upper middle class, gay cis male. I am aware that if you are of different identities to my own (e.g. BIPOC, transgender or nonbinary) that may bring up internal conflict about whether or not I can be trusted as a source of psychological safety to you. I welcome having a conversation about this in our initial communications and/or our therapy sessions. And, should you decide to have this conversation with me, I pledge to be open, receptive, engaged, and compassionate.

That being said, are you seeking a sense of wholeness, feeling good enough, genuine connections with others, or a connection to something greater than yourself? 

In therapy with me, we will face these goals together. During our sessions, you will experience a genuine sense of being heard and understood as we delve into your present difficulties, gaining profound insights into your thoughts, emotions, and actions. Together, we will unravel recurring patterns in your life and examine how they might be influencing you, providing you with clarity about your current circumstances and guiding you towards your next steps.

  • Increase access to emotional and mental energy
  • Feel more joy in life 
  • Broker inner peace

I am a gay and male identified therapist who specializes in improving intimate relationships, job-related stress relief, LGBTQ+ issues, and healing childhood trauma. I can help with a variety of mental health challenges such as anxiety, depression, and PTSD. My greatest strength and passion is helping people make peace with their past.

What makes me different from other therapists? I don’t only listen compassionately and reflect back insights and ideas. My training in Internal Family Systems (IFS) helps people get to the root of things very quickly – and leads to long lasting positive life changes.
