IPG PAVED THE WAY for other gay affirmative therapists - we started in 1983 specifically to provide therapy to the gay and lesbian community, back when most practitioners thought it was a mental illness. We're still trailblazers: we work with transgender people, bisexuals/pansexuals, kinky people, couples who practice consensual nonmonogamy, and others who make up the "Q" in LGBTQ . You may not want therapy BECAUSE you are gay , but you definitely want a therapist who is not only affirming but knowledgeable. We understand the special issues of LGBTQ individuals, couples, and families, and we provide sex therapy as well.

I also specialize in working with the LGBTQIA + community including gender related issues and concerns.
I am a firm believer that change and recovery are possible for everyone. Therapy and change can be both difficult and challenging experiences. My approach centers around trust and the importance of the therapeutic relationship. I am an open-minded and nonjudgmental support who can walk with a person through this journey. I hope to help individuals learn more about themselves and how to live more authentically. I love supporting people in harnessing their own individuality while helping them navigate the world and it's stress. We don't necessarily live in a world that embraces uniqueness, let me assist you in tapping into that magic.

I have extensive experience as a counselor for teens and adults with an additional focus working with LGBTQ + youth.
There are times in life where people will seek counseling because they feel disconnected in their relationships, are struggling with difficult situations and emotions, or long to live a life that feels meaningful, satisfying and authentic. Counseling can help you navigate through this transformative time in your life. I am prepared to help you navigate through this transformation. My therapeutic approach is client-centered and humanistic focusing on offering my clients unconditional positive regard, compassion, and a good sense of humor when appropriate.

At IPG, we are proud pioneers in gender affirming psychotherapy for transgender and gender nonconforming people. We view gender diversity as normal, not a mental illness. We're more experienced than any other practice in New Jersey, with 800+ trans clients and 30+ years of experience. We were recently awarded a PROUD Award recognizing our decades of work with and dedication to the transgender community. At all three of our locations (Highland Park, Jersey City, and Freehold) we have skilled gender specialists who work with trans and GNC adults, adolescents, and children as young as three. Why consult anyone less than an expert?

Porn, fantasy, masturbation, love addiction, affairs, chat-room seductions, App hook-ups, paying for sex, and sexual avoidance keep countless of you straight, gay and bisexual men and women feeling shamed, and unable to fully connect emotionally and physically.
You want emotional intimacy but disappointment and blame distance you. You withdraw or act out sexually to avoid pain? Do romantic obsessions or resentment towards your partner/spouse fuel your inability to connect and feel loved? I reach out from my decades of experience with individuals and couples who are intimacy avoidant and I help resolve your past and present blocks to intimacy by facilitating the examination and change of life-long patterns in my safe office space. My willingness to listen, to observe, to enter your world with a structured understanding is my therapeutic strength that has transferred to online sessions.

I am a humanistic/relational psychologist with over 20yrs experience in mental health. I believe every person has what they need to heal already within them and that I am just a guide for you to uncover your true potential so that you can live an authentic life. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work to better understand and resolve challenges in our current life. Life transitions can be challenging to get through, and they can also be a spring board into tremendous self growth. I listen intently and care deeply about my clients and most of all I want them to feel heard, understood and supported.
