Have you had traumatic experiences that make it difficult or impossible to enjoy life and pursue your goals? Have you become depressed? Has anxiety taken over your life? Are you experiencing problems with intimacy in your relationships? Has sex or your sexuality become a problem? Are you having trouble with sleep? Have any of these problems interfered with work, home life, school, or social activities? There is hope for change.

People come to me to reduce depression and anxiety, whatever their source. Working holistically, I help them develop better connections with themselves and others. I use individual therapy and couples/intimate partners therapy from a life affirming, trauma informed, and sex positive perspective to help you grow and develop in all areas.

I use a variety of therapeutic styles and techniques tailored to the reasons you are seeking therapy and your personal preferences. Please call or email me to discover how we can work together to improve your life.

Specialized populations
My training was at the Pacific Center for Human Growth in Berkeley, CA where I worked with gay men experiencing depression, HIV/AIDS, anxiety, anger issues, and major life transitions.

From 2005-2018, I worked extensively with 18-25 year old homeless youth in a non-profit setting. For the last four plus years of that time, I was a Program Director and Clinical Supervisor for a housing program for 18-24 year old homeless youth.

I have a particular specialization working with gay men struggling with sex addiction/compulsion. Also, I specialize in working with people who are struggling with sleeping disorders including insomnia and circadian rhythm disorders.
