I operate from a belief that deep in our core we are whole, healthy and healed. I think that our world, society and past experience bruise us, but we are never fully broken. We all have the capacity to heal and to live a life of wholeness, joy, and freedom.
Getting in touch with the things that block us from that core of wholeness is necessary to heal and experience joy and freedom.
I work with clients to identify, and remove those things that block us from living an authentic life. My goal is to help clients reclaim their true self, their divine core, which I believe is already within you awaiting our discovery.
I specialize in helping gay men heal the wounds of childhood trauma in order to navigate the world as a healthy and whole person. My other specialties include couples therapy, reconciling faith and sexuality, issues associated with the LGBTQ community around addiction and recovery related issues.
I use a variety of techniques but ground my practice in incorporating cognitive behavioral therapy and spiritual guidance as a path toward healing. As a certified EDMR therapist I use this approach to integrate both body and mind in the healing process.
My goal is that my clients are able to live a life that is happy, joyous and free.
