My Approach to Helping
Therapy changed my life. In fact, it led me to become a therapist. Professionally, I had reached a level of success that kept me financially comfortable, but I was depressed and anxious because I lacked purpose. I know this feeling on a visceral level. I was lost in addictions and reckless behaviors which further galvanized my sadness and kept me feeling lost in how to make meaningful change. The work I did in therapy helped me become the man I am today.
Therapy is a safe place for you to be open with your thoughts and feelings, free of judgment. Shame is a common issue we all face. Sharing your shame helps to dispel it and leads you to substantial emotional growth. I find the most valuable impact therapy can have on you is a deeper understanding of yourself and who you want to show up as in the world. Through consistent, gentle, and thoughtful investigation of oneself, there can be considerable growth. The deeper we are able to go together, the more attuned you will become with yourself and others.
My practice encompasses a wide range of people. My main areas of focus include the queer community, entertainment industry professionals, performers, artists, and couples of all types (gay, straight, polyamorous, etc). Lastly, I work with a wide range of people with different types of presenting problems, races, and sexual and gender identities. I tailor my approach to each client's needs.
