Your healing is my passion. We're in this together
I provide therapy to individuals, couples/intimate partners, and families of all kinds, with a focus on alternative sexualities and lifestyles. I am affirming of queer and TGNC identities, kink and D/S lifestyle relationships, sex work, and polyamory/consensual non-monogamy.
My work is informed by intersectionality and motivated by my personal experience with the communities I serve. As a therapist on his own path of healing, I share what I learn along the way with my clients and celebrate our wins. I’m a bisexual transman who has personal experience with kink and non-monogamy. I’m a loved one of sex workers. I’m an addict in long term recovery. I believe in healing through community, and in practicing radical self disclosure—with boundaries. We’re all in this together.
I hold an LCSW from Columbia University School of Social Work and have been a licensed social worker for eight years. I provide clinical supervision to a team of LMSW therapists, and consultation and training/workshops for companies and organizations.
When I’m not in session, I enjoy practicing yoga, dreaming up my future animal rescue ranch, meeting with my therapist and spiritual teachers, and spending time with my loved ones– including my evil chihuahua and angelic pitbull.
I believe that the client-therapist relationship is crucial to the effectiveness of therapy, so I invest in my relationships with my clients. I’m warm and down-to-earth, and use playfulness to form our connection. I seek to support and empower you as we explore your identities, relationships, and goals in an affirming environment. I employ a variety of relational evidence-based therapeutic approaches to meet your individual needs.
You can expect our work to explore your past, and use it to equip you for living well in the present: Let’s learn from the past, without getting stuck in it. My work is trauma-informed and consent-based, meaning that I won’t force you to share more than you’re ready to, and you get to decide what we discuss, though I am happy to offer direction when that is helpful. However, when my clients do need to be held accountable, it will be done with love and tenderness.
Self-determination is a core value in my work. I will offer suggestions and ideas, but ultimately you are in charge of the trajectory of your healing. Our therapy sessions are a time where I will help you develop a better understanding of yourself, heal your wounds, and gather the tools and resources to live your boldest and bravest life.
I believe that therapy is a space for healing, self-realization, and self-actualization. Working with my community in these ways is a joy for me and my own healing process.
