I support individuals looking to reclaim their Narrative and strengthen their Community.
As a queer man who has navigated mental health services, I prioritize the relationship with clients and ensure goals are collaborated upon during the entire journey.
I specialize in Gender Affirming Therapy and Exposure Response Prevention (ERP or EXRP) for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). I have helped hundreds of individuals on their journey throughout my career as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the Philadelphia area. I am licensed in New Jersey and Pennsylvania allowing access to services across the Delaware River.
As a white person it is my responsibility to challenge and end white supremacy. I am actively engaged in anti-racist learning and strive to create spaces that feel as safe as possible for BIPOC folx.
I affirm diverse sexual orientations, gender identities, relationship configurations, and sexual practices, including but not limited to:
Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Pansexual, Queer
Transgender, Genderqueer, Non-Binary
Polyamory & Ethical Non-Monogamy (ENM)
This is the space where you will find opportunities to confront obstacles that have been in the way for some time.
Education & Experience
I received my MSW from Rutgers University School of Social Work. During my time at Rutgers I worked within the Center for Social Justice and LGBTQ Communities. Here I obtained my start with providing Gender and Identity Affirming Care. Soon after I moved to California to collect my clinical hours for licensure through the Sacramento County Medi-Cal counseling center and foster placement services. I supported the creation of the Affirming Home program for LGBTQIA+ youth. While I loved my time in California, it was time to come back to my home base of the Northeast and settle in Philadelphia. Here I allowed myself to delve deeper into clinical work and build a community of my own.
I have presented on panels supporting parents of Transgender, Nonbinary, and gender diverse youth and facilitated didactics for local PsyD and Physical Therapy programs aiming to provide inclusive care. I am a Part-Time Lecturer at Rutgers University Camden School of Social Work where I teach Confronting Anti-Black Racism.
