About My Clients

Busy? Stressed? Emotional? Grieving? Lonely? Modern men need a return on their therapy investment. You need to get out of your head, speak freely, and safely unburden yourself emotionally without fear of any relational backlash. You need a therapist who will listen, join you through the truth, support you, and tell you like it is when you need some honest feedback.

My Background and Approach

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 various associations and organizations including 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 the American Psychological Association's Division 51 - Society for the Psychological Study of Men and Masculinities.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

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:
