I identify as a cisgender gay man. My private practice I own specializes in working with LGBTQ+ folks across KY providing affirming care, many who struggle with identity, anxiety, depression, trauma and queer relationship issues. For trauma-related work, I am trained in Brainspotting (Phase One) and completed a course to become a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP) in 2021. I co-led a research project in Grad School related to the increased suicide rates of LGB individuals in 2014. I also have experience working with trans adolescents on a variety of issues, including gender identity and improving overall self-esteem.
