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.
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.
