About My Clients

Welcome! I specialize in working with Gay Men and LGBTQ+ Adults. I also specialize in anxiety, worry and panic. If you have been looking for an LGBTQ+ affirming therapist who understands the issues unique to our community, please feel free to reach out. Over the years I have had great rapport with my LGBTQ+ clients.

My Background and Approach

I am a Therapist (LCSW) in Private Practice. I live in Phoenix, and work with clients online by video session in all of Arizona and New York. I am in-network with Aetna, Oscar, Oxford and most forms of United (but not AHCCCS, Medicaid or Medicare). My approach to treating anxiety, worry and panic uses a combination of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).

My Values as a Therapist

In Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) we focus on the present and look at ways of managing stress, worry and anxiety better. We will look at some behaviors and thinking patterns non-judgmentally, and work together to build a life that commits to your values and where you want to be. I look forward to connecting with you!
