My name is Kevin and I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Psychotherapist. As a highly skilled and trained therapist, I work with individuals, couples, and groups, taking a collaborative approach to the treatment of anxiety, depression, substance use/misuse, and overall relationship issues. In addition, I have a special interest in working with the LGBT community. My approach draws upon Motivational, Psychodynamic and Interpersonal traditions. Subsequently, I believe what makes therapy most effective is the relational fit between the therapist and the client. I would describe myself as having an integrative approach, which varies and adapts to your unique needs, strengths, and goals for your therapy. I obtained my Masters in Clinical Social Work from Columbia University in 2006. My undergraduate degree is from the University of California, Berkeley, where I studied Psychology. I have completed several post-graduate training programs including a psychodynamic/analytic program at The Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy and a group psychotherapy training program from The Eastern Group Psychotherapy Society (EGPS). I have also had additional training in Motivational Enhancement Therapy and Integrative Harm Reduction Psychotherapy. I am a member of both the National Association of Social Workers and the American Group Psychotherapy Association.

LGBT Issues

Psychotherapy is an invaluable tool for LGBTQ-identified people. Affirmative therapy can help you improve your relationship with others and with yourself. My approach is extremely sensitive to the social stigma, and homo/bi/trans-phobia, that permeate our society and often complicate the life of those who so identify.

My practice has helped people with the coming-out process, medical and sexual health and behavior, and overall increasing of self-worth from the shame, judgment, and stigma that can sometimes plague the community.

Alcohol and Drug Abuse

I work closely with both the person currently using/abusing drugs and alcohol, and the people whom are impacted by their loved one’s use. One size doesn’t fit all. Are you looking to abstain from all drugs and alcohol? Great. I can assist you with that. Are you looking to cut back your current use of alcohol, to eliminate the problems it’s creating in your life? Excellent. I can also help you figure that out.

I offer a self-empowering, comprehensive, and individualized approach, utilizing Integrative Harm Reduction and Motivational Enhancement Therapies.

Depression & Anxiety

Most people feel anxious or depressed at times. Going through a loss, changing jobs, divorce, or other difficult situations can lead a person to feel sad, lonely, scared, or nervous. These are normal reactions to life’s many stressors. However, you may feel you experience these feelings more often, even daily, and for no apparent reason. You may find that these feelings are making it more difficult to function in your daily life. If so, it may be time to seek a professional to explore your options for potential treatment. Both of these disorders are highly treatable, either alone or together.

My approach to treatment is specifically tailored to each of my clients, however, my treatment ‘lens’ is through a focused, integrated approach of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Mindfulness Based Psychotherapies.

Today you are one step closer to a new you, where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being. As a solution-focused therapist, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can’t change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life. If you’re looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you’re just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.

Individual Therapy
Couples and Family Therapy
Short and Long-Term Treatment

The majority of my work has been with adults, young adults, and teenagers who are experiencing anxiety, depression, relationship problems, drug and alcohol use, or post-traumatic stress reactions. These clients have often begun working with me after having engaged in long-term struggles that have left them confused and frustrated. This might be you.

I welcome the opportunity to talk with you about how we can work together, whether you are an adult, young adult, or adolescent who is not living the way you would like. Therapy is learning how to trust, both yourself and others. I would like to facilitate that trust.
