About Me

I am a New York state Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW) and an Internal Family Systems (IFS) trained psychotherapist. I have a master of social work from Columbia University where I specialized in advanced clinical practice. Prior to becoming a therapist, I had a career that spanned multiple industries and I have domestic and international experience in business, government, and non-profit institutions.

Therapy with me is a collaborative journey, and my experiences and identities impact who I am as a clinician. As a queer Jewish person with personal experience in polyamorous, kink/BDSM, and sex positive communities, I strive to cultivate an environment that is affirming of your whole self.

As a white cis man, I work to embody an anti-racist and anti-oppressive practice. Therapy with me provides the space to de/reconstruct whiteness and to explore experiences of privilege, power, and oppression as critical factors in mental health and well-being.
