My Path

I knew I’d find myself in some sort of helping profession from an early age. My mom was a nurse and I spent a lot of time around her in nursing homes growing up. I was the kid that said “doctor!” (because that and nurse were the only two helping-professions I really knew about…) when asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. 

Beginning in high-school, I became more interested in the mind and our connections with others. Even though I initially wanted to become a therapist during that time, I entered college heading down a different helping path. One that I later found unfulfilling. I found it was missing one important piece, connection. I realized that early on and was able to shift back to my first interest, therapy.

I completed my training at Temple University and graduated with a Master’s in Counseling Psychology. I’ve worked in a variety of settings such as in a children’s inpatient hospital, a middle school, a high school, a community mental agency, and now currently in private practice.

My Approach

I’ve been described as a calm presence, someone who is relatable and humorous. I believe the most important aspect of therapy is the connection you have with your therapist. I strive to create a space where we can connect on a human level as two individuals trying to sort through life’s challenges. I help sort through your concerns and explore how they relate to your core self. I use techniques to support you in identifying your goals, aspirations, and values. 

My therapy is very exploratory. A lot of the time we will be discussing how some of your plans have affected you. How did they feel? What felt off? Where do you feel you need to go to move forward? These can be challenging questions to answer, but week to week, you will get more information that will help guide you toward your overall goals.

My Specialties

I’ve worked with a wide range of individuals through the years but found I work best with people in their late teens to late 30s. I believe a lot happens in these years that relate to who we are and where we want to go, which can cause a lot of questions to arise within us. 

Alongside this age-range, I work well with individuals who are a part of the LGBTQ+ community. As a gay male, I believe finding a practitioner with personal experience within the community is important to support connection and understanding.
