About My Clients

I work with individuals who struggle with behaviors that they feel have gotten out of control which can include sex, eating, substance use, as well as gambling and other money-related difficulties. I believe that behaviors that feel out of control are related to feelings that are unidentified and then turned into actions, often outside of our awareness.

My Background and Approach

​My interest in helping people began with the movie Ordinary People. Watching scenes of the main character working through his painful issues in therapy had a great impact on me. I use a unique treatment model that helps you understand how your history has resulted in a particular style of attachment, and how to change and improve the way you attach, connect and experience intimacy. In 2010, I founded the Sexuality, Attachment, & Trauma Project. We look at our patients as people, not as problems, and work with each person differently. No two patients are alike, and while we have a lot of experience with certain types of problems, there is no one way we work. That said, there are some common features to our approach: we prioritize your safety and confidentiality. We do not judge. We provide empathy and work hard to understand not just what you do, but who you are, what matters to you, and what it is that you find most challenging.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My own early-age trauma experiences led to a degrees in psychology and social work and a desire to help other men learn to express their feelings. Growing up in a family with addiction increased my interest in trauma-based issues. This began as extensive work in child abuse intervention and prevention. I taught professionals how to identify when children were being harmed and neglected. It became clear in my clinical work that trauma and addiction are deeply interconnected. I believe in identity affirming care. In my work with The New York State Society of Clinical Social Work, I am the chair of the Committee on Gender and Sexuality and a member of the Anti-Racism Committee.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
