I utilize a direct and compassionate approach in order to help gay men thrive and live an authentic life by identifying issues that may really be contributing to unhealthy relationships with themselves and others.

Are you a gay male finding that the life you have cultivated for yourself is unfulfilling? Do you sometimes feel you have no idea what you are doing or where to even begin? How about navigating through life in a committed gay relationship, but finding that you and your partner just can't seem to get on the same page? You may also be in your early twenties and thirties feeling like you don't fit in with those you have held close relationships with your entire life or adult life. Even with increased acceptance and representation, some gay men find that they are experiencing even more mental health issues than before.
After identifying the need for a deeper understanding of what drives men within the gay community to excessively indulge in socially acceptable behaviors, I strive to help them achieve greater awareness and insight into how these behaviors serve to foster meaningful connections, but also soothe collective wounds from inside and outside the community.
If you are ready for a different type of therapy experience, where you look forward to the opportunity to peel back those layers you may not even know are there, as well as feel like you are talking to a familiar face, please feel free to reach out to me so that we can get started helping you thrive! I can guarantee crying will happen but feel great!
