Are you feeling lost and overwhelmed by the distance in your relationship, like you are just “roommates” struggling to connect emotionally or physically? Have you been having the same fight over and over again and wonder if the relationship will last?

I work with individuals and couples from all walks of life to restore safety, improve communication, rebuild connection, and increase intimacy with their partners. After identifying and breaking unhealthy patterns of interaction, we work to re-build a new relationship cycle centered around honesty, authenticity, creativity, and collaboration.

As a gay therapist with a special focus on LGBTQ+ relationships and challenges, I provide a safe, affirming, and inclusive space to help my clients get “unstuck” from their most distressing emotional and relational wounds. I also journey with clients to make meaning out of profound loss, including death-related and non-death losses, major life transitions, and traumatic loss. You don’t have to travel this lonely and confusing path alone.

With advanced training in Brainspotting and Emotionally Focused Therapy for individuals and couples, I draw on the most powerful – and empirically validated – models of therapy to meet the specific needs of my clients and to help them meet their goals.

Finding the right fit with a therapist who “gets it” can be challenging, and no one understands LGBTQ people better than LGBTQ people. And distance is no obstacle – whether from your phone or home office, I offer online therapy for clients all over Virginia. Contact me to schedule a free 15-minute consultation or an initial appointment. I look forward to connecting with you soon!
