Announcement icon I sometimes hold online, video or phone sessions with clients e.g. Zoom, Skype, Facetime, Doxy.me or an online teletherapy service
While we might long for changes in life, making change can be painful and scary. Therapy is a collaborative process, and I will parther with you on this journey. My practice focuses on treating intimacy/relationship problems, sexual addiction/compulsivity, alcohol/substance abuse, codependency/co-addiction, personality issues, childhood traumas, anxiety/depression and career/workplace concerns. I also specialize in working with the LGBT community. My career began with an MBA working on Wall Street. Since 1995 I've been practicing psychotherapy as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and received my MSW from Columbia University.
I'm a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner and I'm trained in EMDR. Both approaches focus on trauma resolution. In addition, I hold certifications in Group Psychotherapist (CGP), Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) and, I'm a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT). The treatment modalities I utilize include individual, couples & group psychotherapy.
I lead both a weekly Gay Men's Psychotherapy Group where members practice having new experiences relating to one another in the here & now, and a weekly recovery group for Gay Men struggling with Sex Addiction or alcohol/drug linked sexual behavior. This group offers an opportunity to have new experiences relating to others while working on sexual health.

Gilbert McCurdy's Groups

Gay Men's Therapy Group

While the group inherently is supportive, the group focuses on helping members practice having new experiences communicating and relating to one another on a weekly basis by expressing thoughts and feelings in a group setting in the here and now.

More about this group

Gay Men Recovery: Sex Addiction/sex fused w/drugs

Group therapy is a very effective modality for treating people recovering from sex addiction (aka Out-of-Control Sexual Behavior-OCSB) or OCSB fused with drug and/or alcohol abuse. Attending a weekly group oriented towards sexual health with other gay men can break the shame/isolation & provide structure while trying to make changes. Other benefits include giving & receiving feedback & having opportunities for appropriate confrontation. This can facilitate a sense of responsibility for one's behavior & work towards recovering from substance abuse & achieving a healthy sex life.
