As a sex therapist, couples counselor and psychotherapist, I help clients foster better relationships with themselves and their partners. I specialize in helping to negotiate desire discrepancy, low-sexual marriages, and navigate the impact of extra-marital relationships, including polyamory, consensual non-monogamy & infidelity.
Using practical, easy to implement tools, we will address and rectify what needs to shift, while emphasizing and solidifying what’s already working well. Together we will do the kind of work that produces positive, lasting change.

I am a licensed clinical social worker with over ten years of experience. As a therapist, I’m not here to judge you or tell you what’s wrong. Instead, I am here to help you uncover your hidden strengths and harness those abilities to address any challenges or roadblocks you may face. You don’t have to do it alone; we can walk this path together.

I provide individual and group therapy for men in their 20s-50s who have done therapy before and are looking to go deeper.  As an individual therapist, I like to be actively involved and give feedback about what I’m noticing in the here-and-now.  This gives us a portal into understanding how you get tripped up and where you can lean into a fuller, deeper way of living. My men’s groups are long-term process groups that primarily focus on relationships between members.  Group is all about practicing direct, authentic contact and exploring your blocks to getting closer with others.

I know firsthand how hard it can be to set aside society’s expectations of traditional masculinity and admit that it might be time to ask for help. As men, we are conditioned to try and solve life’s many complexities on our own, but the truth is reaching out for help shows immense strength, not weakness.

Perhaps you found my profile because you are considering therapy, and for that I applaud you. You have taken the first step toward healing and that is an incredible start. Maybe you still feel uncomfortable with the idea of therapy or you found me by accident. In that case, I sincerely look forward to answering your questions about how this could help improve your life as well. Either way, I am glad that you are here.

Many difficulties stem from our relationships, with both ourselves and others. My work with men is direct, yet warm, empathetic, & understanding. Together we navigate how to process the blocks obstructing your view & ability to move forward. We will explore life events from the past, as behavior patterns emerge in the here-and-now. As this self-awareness develops, clients can lead more joyful & connected lives. I cater sessions to each unique individual using real-life examples & the material you provide to deepen your own understanding of YOU. Complimentary consultation visit is available to all prospective clients. AJ is employed & supervised by Marina Chatterton, LCSW #26126

Straightforward, no nonsense approach to psychotherapy without a lot of psychobabble. Helping men deal with depression and anxiety even if they are experiencing outward success. Learning to deal with the inevitable pain and suffering of living when it is not something we normally share with those around us.

I view therapy as being invited to explore ourselves in a welcoming way with someone with kindness who shares knowledge about how we function as humans, so we can gain an understanding for how we have functioned, what we need to thrive, and then thrive. This is self-worth and mastery. And with it comes our being more loving toward toward others and toward ourselves.
