  • Hello and welcome. My name is Preston and I am a queer therapist of color. My first priority as a therapist is always to establish a safe and vibrant relationship with clients, believing deeply that authentic human connection is one of the greatest catalysts for healing and change. I also take a systems approach in the work I do with clients, seeking to understand each individual’s role within larger social and systemic constructs. I bring a social justice lens to working with clients, helping people to understand and heal from the effects of internalized oppression and the ways it impacts one's sense of self and relationships.
    I support a wide range of clients who find themselves working through depression, anxiety, relationship stress, grief, and difficult transitions. I specialize in working with LGBTQ+ and BIPOC folk; Religious trauma; Survivors of conversion therapy; Men's issues; and Psychedelic integration / preparation.
    I also provide relationship therapy for couples and polycules from a sex positive, poly-affirming perspective. I am based in the Bay Area and currently provide telehealth services to clients throughout California. If you think we might be a good fit to work together, I’d be happy to schedule a free consultation to explore this possibility.
