As a gay man 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.

I am an experienced and qualified psychologist who can assist with a wide range of concerns. The person I am working with is someone who wants to take control of their mental health. This is more important than the diagnosis itself because it's about how we support that individual in learning new skills for life, not just treating whatever symptoms they have at any given time (or denying them). I specialized in issues related to masculinity ( men and boys), anxiety-related disorders, and borderline personality disorder.

I believe that psychotherapy lays the emotional groundwork that leads to a more satisfying and engaged life. Many people mistakenly think of psychotherapy as one-sided: the person in therapy talks and the therapist listens. But effective psychotherapy - therapy that heals - works because of the unique relationship that develops between the therapist and the person in therapy. I provide an environment - safe and non-judgemental - that facilitates opening up in new and often unexpected ways and helps you experience and express deepest thoughts and feelings. I have particular experience working with gay men , HIV issues, substance abuse and sexual addiction.

Online Counseling for Men : Are you a man who feels stuck between anger and numbness? Stressed out and anxious? Maybe you've doubted going to therapy because it seems too strange. Do you wish something would change in your relationship, but you don't know what to do--or worried it might end? Or maybe you're the guy who's constantly the friend of every woman you'd actually like to date. Plus, COVID-19 has raised all these stresses to the nth power. For white guys, maybe you're also realizing how race and racism have played a role in your life. You're ready to take steps to undo harm--but it seems like there's no way out.
