About Me

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with offices located in the Piedmont district of Oakland, CA and in downtown Mill Valley, CA. I also offer therapy online. Please read below and check out my videos to get more of a sense of me. 


My own healing journey and life experience as an artist, photographer, nature lover, traveler, student, therapy client, gay man, Buddhist practitioner and worker for social justice enable me to bring a breadth of understanding and wisdom to the lives of the people with whom I work. Below is a summary of my education and professional experience.

"Perhaps everything that frightens us is, at its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love...when a sorrow rises up before you, greater than you have ever seen before; when a restlessness light light and cloud shadows passes over your hands and over all your doing. You must think that something is happening upon you, that life has not forgoten you, that it holds you in its hand; it will not let you fall."  -Rainer Maria Rilke
