Want more out of intimate relationships?

"Have Everything" but still feel lonely and depressed?

Feel stuck in sexual behaviors or self-defeating patterns?

Sex, whether alone or partnered, can be a healthy expression of your innate desire to connect, have fun, and celebrate who you are. I can help you with the anxiety, suffering, and depression when your relationship to porn, apps, and sexual behaviors is no longer in sync with who you want to be or become.

Much of my work focuses on men with addictive-feeling sexual behaviors. Often these behaviors are symptoms of a deeper longing to be more connected and less lonely.

I can provide tools to create positive change.

More Info About My Practice

Focused, gentle, and direct

I am focused, gentle, and direct. Sessions may feel intense and safe at the same time. In session with me, you can expect me to be curious, respectful, and above all non-judgmental. My clients tend to trust me even when they have a hard time trusting others.

Strengthen your resilience and broaden your range of choices

Therapy can be hard work. It takes time and commitment. Creating a new path forward can feel difficult and challenging. Talking about who you are, how you came to be and what you really want takes courage and safety. The goal is to relieve suffering so that you can create lasting and significant changes.

Why me?

As a fifty-three year old gay male therapist, married for ten years, my academic, personal and professional life experiences give me unique perspective, understanding, and compassion.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

Sex addiction, sexual compulsivity, and pornography: I work with men to untangle both the behavior and the underlying intimacy issues. I will work with you to find meaning in what feels frightening, overwhelming, or unknowable. In doing so, you can create healthier relationships and more fulfilling intimacy.

Relationship Issues in Couples: as a trained EFT Couple's therapist I will help you slow down and make sense of what's going on in your relationship. Often times the arguments you are having are just the tip of the iceberg. Underneath, there are deeper issues that, when addressed, create connection. As a team, you can take on the stresses of everyday life!

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

Chances are you have an idea of what therapy looks like...from movies, television, friends, or even your past experiences. Some good...some bad... How can you decide?

Research shows that a critical factor in positive treatment outcome is the "therapeutic alliance." That's the "fit" between you and me. It's how well we work together.

What's your sense of me? Am I listening to you, really listening? Am I compassionate? Empathetic? Do I seem accepting and non-critical? I am known for being incredibly attuned, compassionate, and non-judgmental...but you need to feel that for yourself.

When the fit is right, therapy has the potential to be a profound journey toward making and sustaining positive change and transformation. Make sure you choose the best companion and guide for you!
