About My Clients

I welcome connection with any clients who are looking to heal and grow. I specifically am interested in working with people under the queer umbrella; kinky or polyamorous folks; those in the disability community; anyone living with the weight of systemic and interpersonal marginalization and oppression; and men who want to unpack toxic masculinity, deepen their emotional lives, and find new ways to connect with others. I love working with other therapists.

My Background and Approach

NOTE: I am private pay; I do not accept insurance. My clients come to therapy with pain, uncertainty, and big questions. Am I being authentic? How do I set boundaries and make my relationships better? What’s the point of life? Is something wrong with me? When will I figure out how to heal from trauma? Where do I belong? I would love to explore these questions with you and, I hope, even find some answers. I work with you to create a safe-enough (because often, safety is only relative) relationship. One where you can be vulnerable, look at the dark corners of your mind, and celebrate all parts of yourself. One where I offer witnessing, connection, curiosity, compassion, and the occasional insight. I know you can find your way to a fulfilling life, where you live with radical authenticity and joy. I’d like to help you get there. My approach to this work is existential, liberationist, and internal family systems informed. I currently have Tues/Thurs afternoon appointments.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a white, invisibly disabled, queer, trans man. I'm committed to liberation for LGBTQ+, BIPOC, disabled, and all other marginalized people. I am aligned with the fat acceptance movement. I believe in environmental justice and taking down capitalism. My therapeutic work is grounded in social justice and a trauma-informed perspective. I believe that our bodily experience is as important as our psychological one and so bring somatic elements into my sessions. I am also aligned with kink and polyamory and firmly believe that everyone has a right to do what they choose with their own bodies. My framework for understanding experience the field diagnoses as mental or developmental disorders is one of neurodiversity: I honor the way you in particular function and what your needs are rather than seeking to help you change your behavior to fit social parameters. I operate from a cultural humility when working with people of different racial, ethnic, or cultural backgrounds.
