About Me:

  • My clients describe me as:

    a warm, empathic, curious, and active therapist. I strive to bring my authentic self to sessions, as a way of encouraging clients to do the same.

  • Something to know about my approach is:

    I believe we learn to understand ourselves and the world around us through our experiences of relationships. Our relationship within therapy will then be a tool we will use to explore how you navigate the world, and beliefs/assumptions you may hold.

  • Together, we will:

    identify areas of challenge or growth in your life, and explore the intersection between current difficulties and past experiences. Ultimately, the past is a tool for understanding your present and creating positive change in the present-day.

  • I specialize in working with people who:

    are navigating life transitions, relationship difficulties, or exploring their identity. I work extensively with male clients, including both straight and queer men, as well as cis and trans-masc clients. I also work with couples, including poly/ENM

  • I became a therapist because:

    I'm fascinated by how our experiences in life shape the people that we become, as well as the power that we have as humans to change our own stories.

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

    the flexibility provided by telehealth. My clients have access to therapy while traveling or on vacation, allowing for greater consistency in meeting.

  • More about me and my practice:

    In addition to my work in private practice, I also work at the Kull Initiative for Psychotherapy, providing both clinical supervision and clinical training in couples + relationship therapy.
