Most of the time it all boils down to love and work. Relationships and creating. Let's work on what matters.

I believe that depression is the body and mind telling you that something is wrong in your life and that something must change. It is a clue, not just a "disorder." Whether your depression is situational that has a clear onset from an event like death or a breakup, or if it's something chronic you've been dealing with your whole life, we can work on it together. I do not shy away from existential angst or suicidal ideation. You should have a safe space to talk about lack of meaning.
I work with men on dating, relationships, and career, focusing on the depression and anxiety that are often underneath day to day problems and holding them back. Society has done a great disservice to men by continuing to spread dangerous messages like "boys don't cry" and "man up". Men are so detached from their feelings that it leads to them living dishonest lives full of shame and guilt and buried emotions that often manifest somatically with panic attacks and GI problems.
Let’s face it, talking about your most intimate relationship in front of a perfect stranger can be really uncomfortable. Often times we are in relationships that are challenging us to repair attachments that were damaged long ago. Finances, sex, jealousy, anger, friends, family, values, children, career- it’s all taking a toll on you. Together, we can work towards getting you back to happy, whatever that may be.
