I am a queer, neurodivergent Jewish dude who wants to do nothing more than leave the world a better place than when I came into it. I am passionate about mental health within the LGBTQIA+, polyamorous/Ethically Non-Monogamous, and kink communities. As a bisexual guy, I also understand the difficulties and stigma that male-identifying individuals can face.
I graduated from Loyola University of Maryland in Baltimore with a Master’s in Clinical Professional Counseling.
Outside of being a counselor, I am often rock climbing, swing dancing, nerding out about video games, playing board games, watching anime, or cooking.
My Approach: I approach clients using an eclectic approach with a focus on the humanistic side, which means that much of what we focus on is what you find to be personally affecting you, and what has meaning to you. Together we will develop treatment goals that you identify with. I often use a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or Interpersonal Therapy framework in order to help set these goals, but ultimately the approach used will be based on what you vibe the most with. I have plentiful experience with Dialectical Behavioral Therapy as well, and we can absolutely incorporate coping skills from that approach. Regardless of the approach we take, everything is conducted with a trauma-informed lens, as I recognize that in our community, this is sadly quite prevalent.
I use EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy) with couples, relationships, and polycules.
Better emotional awareness and communication: EFT provides a language for healthy interdependence between partners and looks at qualities that define an adult love relationship. The primary goal of the model is to expand the emotional responses of the couple.
Stronger, more secure bonds: EFT is based on attachment theory, which suggests that attachments between people typically provide a safe haven—a retreat from the world and a way to obtain comfort, security, and a buffer against stress.
Improved interpersonal compassion: EFT helps people become more aware of their partner’s needs. Because of this awareness, they are also able to listen and discuss problems from a place of empathy instead of a place of defensiveness or anger.
When working with me you can expect a laid back safe environment, where you feel that you can be yourself. I genuinely look forward to getting to know you and finding out how I can best help you with your journey.
