About My Clients
Modern men like you are stepping out of "The Man Box" because social and cultural gender norms are changing for the better, and therapy for men is now a new kind of strength. You need to get out of your head, speak freely, and unburden yourself without any fear of backlash that could burden your relationships. You need a therapist who will listen, join you through the truth, and tell you like it is while you add the best tools for your toolbox.
My Background and Approach
Embracing vulnerability is important to me. I often combine empathy, humor, and direct feedback to add perspective that can support my clients while helping them feel seen, heard, and understood. Our work is collaborative, and you can expect us to become partners while we safely guide you through the marathon journey from your head to your heart. 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, and a group private practice. I'm a member of the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) and the New York State Society for Clinical Social Work. 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.
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.
