About Me:

  • My clients describe me as:

    patient, kind, and thoughtful. I am a less directive therapist, meaning I will follow your lead. Many clients also comment on my beard.

  • Something to know about my approach is:

    it's relationally-based. I believe therapy is not effective unless the client has a good relationship with his/her/their therapist, so I will really take the time to do my best to build trust and communication with you.

  • Together, we will:

    make sense of your experience and use your existing strength to build resilience and thrive in adversity.

  • I specialize in working with people who:

    Are working through trauma, depression, stress, adjustment, or anxiety. Feel "stuck," whatever that means to them. Identify as male. Present with so-called "men's issues".

  • I became a therapist because:

    I wanted to help people with the challenges that life often brings upon us.

  • Something that stands out about where I offer therapy is:

    we have free parking and good snacks! :) I love tea, plants, and art, so you will notice a lot of that around my office.

  • More about me and my practice:

    I'm a founding partner and managing clinician at City Counseling Center. We believe everyone deserves to feel understood and that a key component to understanding people lies in supporting a diversity of human experience.
