My Approach to Psychotherapy & Sex Therapy:

I consider myself an emotionally-focused, attachment-informed psychotherapist & sex therapist. I incorporate somatic, experiential, and relational modalities that are informed by attachment theory, relational neuroscience, somatic mindfulness, and transformative studies.

Somatic: Mind-Body Experience

Experiential: Here-and-Now, Moment-to-Moment

Relational: Connection between Client-Therapist, Client-Self, Client-Others (past and present)

Through this emotionally-focused, attachment-informed perspective we will reinforce innate resiliency and self-compassion, as we embrace suppressed emotions and heal old attachment wounds that are impacting how you navigate your world today. This ultimately leads to a rewiring of the nervous system, allowing a secure and authentic sense of self to emerge.

What Led Me to Become a Therapist: 

As a closeted gay child growing up in suburban PA in the late 90s-early 2000s, I knew I was different from other male students my age. I was scrawny, unathletic, sensitive, and craving acceptance from others. Societal expectations of masculinity and sexuality weighed me down for years. I tried so hard to be cool enough, bro enough, straight enough to be accepted. Deep down inside I felt alone. I felt like I had no one who I could relate to. Most of all, I was fearful to admit any of this to anyone.

Flash Forward...

My aspiration for founding a psychotherapy and sex therapy practice stemmed from wanting  men and male-presenting individuals to have a space where they could feel comfortable enough to lower their walls and have real conversations about struggles that many of us face, and most of us feel too shy, embarrassed, or anxious to discuss with someone else. In my office we can explore the many interconnecting variables that are impacting your current concerns, helping you identify alternative ways of relating to your internal, social, sexual, and relational self in a manner that promotes confidence, authenticity, and self-compassion.
