My Approach to Helping
I am a strong believer that human connection is the catalyst needed to explore any underlining psychic wound. In my psychotherapy practice, I prioritize fostering a collaborative relationship to provide emotional and personal safety, allowing you to dive beneath the surface to better understand the underlying causes of your personal distress. The goal is, through exploration, to create opportunities for you to become more self-aware of your own thoughts and feelings, empowering you to re-create new ways of connecting to yourself and loved ones. My approach is integrative and holistic, allowing all the various parts of you to be seen and heard. I use an interaction style of warmth, curiosity, directness and non-judgmentalnon-critical communication to help you achieve your desired goals.
My practice celebrates working with diversity of gender, sexual orientation and racial and cultural identities, integrating anti-oppression and social justice values that allow you to share your lived experiences candidly. I specialize in working with GayQueer men, individuals that are in the recovery process from substance use, and males around issues of masculinity, sex and emotional vulnerability.
