  • 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.


Asking for help can be scary

Asking for help can make you feel ashamed, weak, or not good enough. Therapy can definitely be scary. But it can also be a beautiful, awe-inspiring, magical, and wondrous journey! I know how to take you on a journey within yourself, even to dark places, in a way that feels safe and healing.

  • Playfulness and humor lighten the weight of serious problems.
  • Collaboration leads to connection and meaning.
  • Kindness and compassion help create healing experiences.

I am a gay and male identified therapist who specializes in improving intimate relationships, job related stress relief, LGBTQ issues, and healing childhood trauma. If you are looking to reduce shame, anxiety, depression, self criticism, frustration, loneliness, worrying, and hyper-vigilance, among other stresses, I may be a good fit for you.

I am excited to meet you and journey with you! You can contact me and schedule a free 15 minute phone consultation to see if we’d be a fit to take your healing journey together.
