Welcome to my psychotherapy practice.​ I work with adults 18yrs. and up in individual and couples therapy. I have worked with a wide range of client symptoms and issues over many years of work in mental health. I have extensive experience in short-term focused therapy and am good at keeping the therapy focused on the task at hand once goals have been collaboratively set. I really enjoy getting to know the individual strengths and needs of each client and adapting the approach to be as effective as possible.

​I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and a Board Certified Dance/Movement Therapist (BC-DMT). I am able to draw on a wide range of techniques and strategies including:

  • Cognitive/Behavioral Therapy
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy
  • Mindfulness 
  • Dance/Movement Therapy
  • Somatic/movement/breath/body-oriented perspectives
  • Gottman approach for couples
  • Kink/Poly/Alternative relationships
  • Substance use issues/12-step/harm reduction
  • Sex Therapy, Problematic Sexual Behaviors or Addiction
  • Gender Affirming Care/Support before, during and after transition
  • Social justice, Strengths, and Systems perspectives
  • Psychodynamic approach with thoughtful attention to the client/therapist relationship

Although I seek to work with a diverse range of clients, I am especially committed to work with the LGBTQ community. I enjoy working with lesbian, gay, bi, and transgender clients to help them on their path to feeling good about who they are, their bodies, and their sexuality. 

I have spent extensive time in Latin America and work with the Latinx/Spanish speaking community has been a big passion and part of my work. I am humble about my work with clients from different cultures and backgrounds and strive to understand and honor each clients experience. Working in mental health for 30yrs in San Francisco as an out white, cis, gay/queer man has shaped my worldview and the work that I do with clients.
