My Approach to Helping
Are you struggling with life decisions, with anxiety, disability, or another difference? Are you an LGBTQ person challenged by overwhelming feelings and crave validation and acceptance? Perhaps you’re a creative person who wants help with sorting your thoughts and organizing your life. Do you and your partner have anxiety about the relationship or worries about how it will survive? I can help you gain self-awareness and compassion to reach a place of calm and less tension. If you’re straight, gay, or another member of the LGBTQ community, I have tools to help you feel less overwhelmed.
More Info About My Practice
You don't have to feel anxious, sad, or uncertain forever. I work with individuals and couples of all orientations, and specialize in working with LGBTQ people. As a gay man with a partial hearing loss, I've dealt with embracing my identity and confronting adversity. I focus on empowerment, generating hope, and proudly embracing personal identity. Finding a good therapist can feel challenging and so I offer a free 15 minute phone consultation so we can discuss your hopes and assess fit. I look forward to hearing from you!
On the Fence About Going to Therapy?
"I'm afraid of being vulnerable and not feeling safe in the room. Why should I come to you?"
People are taught not to be vulnerable, thus any vulnerability that exists feels negative and uncomfortable. On the path to empowerment, vulnerability is a powerful tool to allow people freedom from shame.
"Therapy can get so expensive. I don't know if I can afford it."
The insight you will gain from a trained professional who targets your specific issues is worth the investment. You need someone you trust and someone who understands what they are talking about.
"Maybe Now Isn't the Right Time?"
If you're struggling with the thought of thinking now may not be the right time, I can tell you from experience that there is NEVER a right time. The best time is now as the longer you go without receiving guidance, the more confusing the path can be, and I want to be able to help you on your journey! You deserve for things to lighten now, not later.
