Message to clients

Finding joy and meaning in life can be elusive, and I want to collaborate with you to find what is most purposeful and meaningful in life. Anxiety, pain, sadness, and difficulties in life are unavoidable, and, the way we respond to our pain can be the difference between a vital life, and one controlled by suffering. Oftentimes we experience harm as a result of oppressive systems and policies, and I am especially attuned to the impact these have on how we move through the world.

As a white nonbinary person who is assigned male at birth (AMAB), I bring awareness of my identities into the work of therapy. I continually work to be aware of how power dynamics influence therapy, and also how my experiences as a nonbinary person inform my work.

I deeply value being honest and straightforward, in order to partner with you to identify the ways in which you can gain more control over how you live your life, and how to navigate an often oppressive and difficult world. When we first meet, I will take the time to understand what you hope to get out of therapy, and then give feedback regarding how I think we can meet your goals. If I don't think my style and skills are the right fit, I'll let you know and can help to connect you to someone who might have a different style.

"Really great therapist. Witty, non-judgmental, and fun to talk to. He also is no nonsense in terms of the value of your time, and he will ensure all goals are either met or in process of being met when working with him."
