I work with leather/power-exchange sex as one of the varied manifestations of the male soul, focusing on its unique meaning for the man/men involved.

It's my privilege to work as an ally to other men and to the male soul. I take a male-affirmative approach to counseling and therapy, looking to uncover and honor a man's often unrecognized gifts and accomplishments. 

Gay or straight (or unlabeled), older or younger, partnered or single, men face a lot of challenges in our lives, and our society complicates them by sending us very mixed messages.

We are supposed to be more caring and sensitive and we are also supposed to "man up." The woes of the world are somehow our fault because we're just too...male. And men who don't fit the standard model feel like outsiders.

All this adds to the confusion when we develop stressful problems with our sexual lives, our jobs, our relationships or our own habits, thoughts and emotions (and yes, men do have emotions!).

Having a respectful, thoughtful and confidential ally can help.

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist #MFC37350.

My basic therapeutic orientation is rooted in the work of CG Jung.
