As a gay
and psychotherapist, I am in a unique position to understand and relate to the unique needs of the LGBTQ population.
My practice is varied, although the focus over the years has been the LGBTQ community. I see singles, couples and families. I role is to be a supportive agent, assisting the client to explore their past and present and to be more open about conflicts that are causing stress. Together, we explore the clients past, namely family, in order to develop a deeper understanding of their present patterns and relationships. Anxiety, low self-esteem, sexuality, work problems are all examined. As a parent who has adopted, I work with families and individuals who are concerned about adoption/foster care issues.
