About My Clients

Modern men and modern marriages need a return on their therapy investment. You need to get out of your head, speak freely, and unburden yourself. You need a therapist who will actually listen, join you through the truth, and tell you like it is when you need some honest feedback.

My Background

Over the past decade, I've worked in criminal justice and juvenile justice rehabilitation programs, an outpatient community mental health agency, an inpatient adolescent crisis stabilization unit, a group private practice, and I launched my solo private practice, Verve Psychotherapy, in 2021. I earned a Bachelor of Social Work degree from Eastern Michigan University and a Master of Social Work degree from New York University Silver School of Social Work. I'm a member of the National Association of Social Workers, the New York State Society for Clinical Social Work, Postpartum Support International, the Baltimore Perinatal Mental Health Professionals Study Group, the Open Path Psychotherapy Collective, and Division 51 of the American Psychological Association - the Society for the Psychological Study of Men and Masculinities. The collection of these experiences and many others have shaped and influenced my approach to psychotherapy.

My Values as a Therapist

I signed the Anti-Racist Small Business Pledge as one actionable way that I can live up to my personal and professional values, which are intentionally adopted from the same core values of NASW. So, NASW Values = My Values: Service, Social Justice, Dignity and Worth of the Person, Importance of Human Relationships, Integrity, and Competence. I'm proud to celebrate the strengths and center the needs of people with marginalized identities.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
