I believe in offering affordable therapy, which is why I offer a sliding scale for clients who cannot afford my full fee. I believe today's boys and young men are facing a crisis of identity, and need positive male role models who can dispel the myth that for men, emotion equals weakness. I also believe that adolescence is a period of life to be celebrated, not dreaded, and I enjoy helping families come together to embrace the changes of this transitional life stage. I consider myself to be open-minded, accepting, and aware of how systemic issues of race, class, power, and privilege impact people in my community. I am open to working with all clients regardless of race, gender, or sexual orientation. I also love baseball, and am an assistant coach at a local college. I play the ukulele, listen to the blues, and had a previous career as a sports-writer.
