About My Clients

I welcome connection with any clients who are looking to heal and grow. I specifically am interested in working with people with alternative sexualities, including LGBTQ+, kinky, and polyamorous; those in the disability community; anyone living with the weight of systemic and interpersonal marginalization or oppression; and men who want to deepen their emotional lives and find new ways to connect with others.

My Background and Approach

Are you looking for change? Struggling in your relationships? Trying to heal? Learning how to live with mental illness? I offer existential therapy to address these and other challenges. This can be a transformative and effective modality for clients looking to learn how to live with mental illness, process grief, build self-knowledge and self-worth, heal wounds, work with change, find embodiment and integration, resist oppression, and cope with the inevitable suffering that life holds. My clients appreciate the humanistic approach I bring to our work, which centers your lived experience. I operate on the belief that you are the expert on yourself and work to understand you as an individual to know how to most effectively address your challenges. I can be a guide, partner, and witness in the therapeutic process of building trust and collaborating to strengthen your sense of self and ability to find meaning and joy in your life.

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.

I have experience with the following
  • Agnosticism
  • Atheism
  • Multifaith
