I'm a psychotherapist, clinical supervisor, forensic evaluator, and an assistant professor at the Chicago School of Professional Psychology. More than 15 years of experience in social science research and education motivated me to help heal trauma and empower men to create fulfilling relationships. I received my PhD. in Anthropology and focused my doctoral research on psycho-social health and
masculinity across cultures.

Get Trained


In my clinical consultations you learn to assess the complex interrelationships between social systems, cultural norms, and people's affective health problems. I am committed to help you develop your skill to ask critical questions and challenge power relations that often underlie toxic interaction cycles and mental health problems. Currently, I'm an assistant professor at the Chicago School of Professional Psychology.
