I am a mental health counselor, and a certified sex therapist. I completed my sexual health certificate at the University of Michigan in 2017, and became AASECT certified in 2018. I work to build a genuine relationship with my clients, emphasizing teamwork and encouraging your active participation in the counseling process. I trust you as the 'expert' with the lived experience to help identify realistic solutions to life's challenges. I will help you harness inner strengths and self-compassion, while instilling hope and confidence to overcome obstacles that may be preventing personal growth, health & wellness, and greater life fulfillment.

I am especially passionate about helping individuals overcome obstacles to sexual pleasure. I bring particular training and expertise related to sexual intimacy, sexual functioning, and sexually compulsive behavior. I work with adults & couples experiencing a wide array of other concerns including anxiety, depression, grief & loss, trauma, relationship & family conflict.

I aim to validate and remain sensitive to the power dynamics, political events, and cultural complexities impacting folks with multiple, intersecting identities. As your therapist, I will take ongoing accountability for my own experiences as a white, cisgender man, and will encourage your questions and skepticism before your trust.

Adam Clevenger's Groups

Psychotherapy Group for Gay Men

These professionally-led groups can be uniquely helpful for gay men ages 25 and older seeking to establish, enhance, or maintain relationships with other men. In a safe and supportive environment, the group experience provides an opportunity for gay men to attend to how they form relationships and learn new ways to establish intimacy and closeness. Topics may include, but are not limited to: reducing isolation; managing sadness and anxiety; dating and relationships; sex and sexuality; developing confidence; making decisions about career or school; dealing with HIV or other chronic illnesses; and addressing family concerns.
