Prefer help from a therapist who is also a part of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender community? Or worried that most therapists will not truly understand you or that you will have to censor yourself in therapy? I had these same concerns and they motivated me to become a psychotherapist and life coach who could help others like me. Whether you are looking for short-term solutions or more in-depth therapy, we will work together in a safe and relaxing environment to discover and actualize the solutions you need in order to live a more fulfilling life.

I have been working with the LGBT community on a professional basis for over ten years. I began my mental health work at the NYC Gay and Lesbian Anti-Violence Project, and enhanced my experience with clinical positions at the NYC LGBT Community Center and Gay Men's Health Crisis (GMHC).

While I do have an office in Montclair, NJ, some may prefer the convenience of online video sessions. Contact me to arrange an introduction over Skype where we will ensure your comfort in using video conferencing for therapy before beginning any actual sessions.

Gay Men in Midlife Therapy Group

Allow yourself to feel connected to other gay men in your community by becoming a member of the Gay Men in Midlife Therapy Group. Some of the issues to be explored include: feelings of isolation, trouble meeting men, fears of never having true intimacy or having to settle, effects of HIV/AIDS on your life course, where you stand in your personal life and/or career, relationship struggles, internalized homophobia leading to lower self-esteem and negative life choices, and sexual concerns. Please contact me with any questions or for your no-fee intake.
