Announcement icon I am still accepting new clients and am offering phone and video sessions via Zoom or Skype for clients who are distancing or quarantined.
I specialize in assisting gays/lesbians in learning to work with their inner life through an approach that assists in addressing early childhood dynamics, internalized homophobia, and the trauma of growing up homosexual in this world, issues that today lead to unstable relationships, depression, compulsions, and anxiety, etc. I bring over 20 years of experience working with individuals and couples who seek to address either short-term issues/conflicts or desire to work on a deeper level psychologically. An ideal approach for all persons, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity, who seek a more authentic lived experience.
I assist individuals/couples in discovering their inner strengths through learning to work with their inner life, a dynamic process that typically includes focus on neglected trauma experiences and other painful issues in order to transform them into powerful inner allies that assist individuals in finding their "voice" and becoming more of their true self.
I know that making a call or sending an email to a psychotherapist can sometimes feel like one of the most scary things you can do -- that's what makes it such a courageous act! I encourage you to not let your fear deter you from reaching out for what you truly deserve: a more authentic experience of your true gay self (if you're gay) and of love within.
