About My Clients

Sometimes we feel overwhelmed by depression and anxiety. We may feel chased by persistent feelings of dissatisfaction with our jobs, friendships, romantic relationships, or family life. I serve LGBTQIA2+ communities, addressing with compassion issues of sexual and gender identity, including those in poly relationships and the kink communities.

My Background and Approach

My approach is evidence-based, collaborative, open, and direct. I work with clients primarily from a relational psychodynamic perspective. Depending on what a client may need, I also use cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and other therapeutic lenses. I help clients discover their capacity to navigate the fluctuations of life by helping them identify and draw upon their innate strength and wholeness. I have a masters in counseling psychology from Bastyr University, including an internship at Seattle Counseling Service, working with LGBTQIA2+ communities. Before becoming a counselor, I practiced law for about 15 years, which gave me a particularly empathetic understanding of the pressures of being a busy professional.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that people are fundamentally whole and good, even if those qualities feel obscured at the moment. While I offer therapy to individuals, I believe that we become our whole selves in relationships with others. This means that psychological pain from earlier relationships can hide from us our inherent goodness. Often, a compassionate examination of how we feel in current and past relationships, can help heal past wounds and can offer lasting, meaningful change. As a gay man, I have personal experience in what it means to be marginalized for who I am, and how the mainstream gay community can be both welcoming and, for those who are aware of their intersectional identities, also be alienating. I'm interested in providing a warm, welcoming space to explore those identities. If you would like to know more about how we can work together, shoot me a message.
