About My Clients

I welcome connection with any clients who are looking to heal and grow. I specifically am interested in working with people under the queer umbrella; kinky or polyamorous folks; those in the disability community; anyone living with the weight of systemic and interpersonal marginalization and oppression; and men who want to unpack toxic masculinity, deepen their emotional lives, and find new ways to connect with others. I love working with other therapists.

My Background and Approach

NOTE: I am private pay; I do not accept insurance. My clients come to therapy with pain, uncertainty, and big questions. Am I being authentic? How do I set boundaries and make my relationships better? What’s the point of life? Is something wrong with me? When will I figure out how to heal from trauma? Where do I belong? I would love to explore these questions with you and, I hope, even find some answers. I work with you to create a safe-enough (because often, safety is only relative) relationship. One where you can be vulnerable, look at the dark corners of your mind, and celebrate all parts of yourself. One where I offer witnessing, connection, curiosity, compassion, and the occasional insight. I know you can find your way to a fulfilling life, where you live with radical authenticity and joy. I’d like to help you get there. My approach to this work is existential, liberationist, and internal family systems informed.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a white, invisibly disabled, queer, trans man. I'm committed to liberation for LGBTQ+, BIPOC, disabled, and all other marginalized people. I am aligned with the fat acceptance movement. I believe in environmental justice and taking down capitalism. My therapeutic work is grounded in social justice and a trauma-informed perspective. I believe that our bodily experience is as important as our psychological one and so bring somatic elements into my sessions. I am also aligned with kink and polyamory and firmly believe that everyone has a right to do what they choose with their own bodies. My framework for understanding experience the field diagnoses as mental or developmental disorders is one of neurodiversity: I honor the way you in particular function and what your needs are rather than seeking to help you change your behavior to fit social parameters. I operate from a cultural humility when working with people of different racial, ethnic, or cultural backgrounds.
