It is my aim that through our work together, you will find a greater sense of ease within yourself and a feeling of belonging in your community.

In my work with clients I pull from my background in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) to help you hone your coping skills to better manage uncomfortable aspects of your life. We will plan for a future leading to a greater alignment with your values – finding concrete, practical steps to be taken towards shaping a life of your own design.

In working with men and male identifying people, we can address issues such as sexuality, body image, self-esteem, challenges with emotional intimacy and forming meaningful relationships.

I also support clients with chronic pain and other complex illnesses to strike a balance between how to live in a way that feels meaningful while also being mindful of your body’s limits.

In my work with highly sensitive or creative/artistic personalities, we can spend time defining your value system for what constitutes an engaged, well-lived life while navigating the tensions of others’ expectations of you.

While beginning therapy can be intimidating and the subject matter can be difficult, there is also a space for humor and joy in this work. If this sounds like a good fit for you, I look forward to meeting you soon!
