Pronouns: He, Him
By understanding ourselves on a deeper level we have more say in how we view our past, how we feel in the present, and where we’re going in the future.
I help individuals and couples better understand themselves (and their partners) so that they can feel a greater sense of self-confidence, build deeper and more meaningful relationships, and live life more joyfully and authentically.
Everyone comes to therapy with their own unique story and concerns. Many of us are experiencing anxiety and depression, relationship or family issues, problems with substance use, or a lack of self-esteem. But for queer people, the question “am I enough?” is often at the root of many of our day-to-day troubles.
While we have all been told the importance of self-love, knowing our worth and believing it are two very different things. As a queer person, I am well equipped to help others work through the same issues that I myself have faced. And I am passionate about helping people get to the heart of their issues to spur genuine and lasting growth.
When working with couples I serve as an unbiased counselor focused on helping you strengthen your relationship. Couples that have worked with me have increased their capacity to work through arguments and communication issues. They have felt better about themselves and their relationship and increased their level of honesty and intimacy. They’ve worked through sexual difficulties and electrified their sex life. And they have developed greater compassion and love for themselves and their partners.
After receiving my Masters of Social Work degree at USC, I completed a two-year postgraduate fellowship in psychodynamic psychotherapy at the Wright Institute Los Angeles. I also hold degrees from Tufts University and Columbia University. My hobbies include spending time in nature with my dog, music, and visual art.
