If you are seeking to enhance your life by building connection, confidence, character, and community, I invite you to contact me so we can begin the journey together.

I have experienced and learned the value of connection, confidence, character and community. Growing up with a family who often told me I had “a lil’ sugar in my tank," wore on my confidence which eventually began to deprive me of feeling deep connection and community.  As  gay man I learned until we care for all parts of our being, it is easy for us to feel isolated, defensive, and lacking in confidence.

I work primarily from a Cognitive-Behavioral approach, which is a short-term, results-oriented method.  Integrating Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, I support my clients with becoming who they desire to be.  These evidence-based treatments are especially effective for depression and anxiety.

My passion and specialty for working with couples draws from  Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy.  EFT is a  highly researched form of couples counseling proven to have excellent results. I create a supportive environment for exploring communication differences, betrayal, and hurt; experiences I have also had as a man married to another man.   

I’ve done research on Trauma-Informed Clinical Pastoral Care and provided trainings for organizations such as the Hispanic-Black Gay Coalition on factors impacting the mental health of the LGBTQ+ community.  Most importantly, I enjoy creating spaces to explore what it means to identify as LGBTQ+.

In our sessions you’ll find me interactive, relaxed and intentional about our therapeutic relationship.  Oh and don’t be surprised we will laugh along the way!
