About My Clients

I am happy and proud to serve a diverse group of people, but a large portion of my practice is focused on masculinity- whether that's cis or trans men, or people who have troubled relationships with men. I understand that everyone's experience of masculinity is different and individual. As with all issues, my goal is to help people make peace with theirs and find comfort and love for themselves.

My Background and Approach

My background is largely in Humanistic therapy, which believes that you have all the strength and goodness you need inside you already. I love helping clients fall in love with themselves! I work with substance abuse and addiction, and I really enjoy working with codependency.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a volunteer supervisor at the Southern California Counseling Center (, which is a community mental health center that provides low-cost talk therapy for people in the community. I am very proud of the work that we do at SCCC, because we serve people who are often overlooked by the mental health profession. I understand that, as a highly privileged cisgender, straight, white man, people may be wary about whether they are safe in my office. I want to be very open and say that everyone is welcome and accepted in my office, and that I'm not secretive or evasive about stating my beliefs and policies with regards to accepting others. People need to know my stances on these things in order to assess their safety. So if you have questions about my personal beliefs, please do not hesitate to ask me.
