LGBTQ + Affirmative Therapy

As a sex-positive, LGBTQ+ Affirmative therapist, and older member of the LGBTQ+ community, I see you.

I spent 34 years in the closet; I know how it feels to lose loved ones to HIV and experience toxic shame and low self-worth as the result of my inability to live openly, authentically as a gay man. I also personally know the effects of alcohol and substance use on shame and I can meet you there.

I’ll enter our work together from an affirmative, strength-based approach that honors your experiences, lack of mirroring and unmet attachment needs. We’ll identify your strengths in confronting adversity as a member of our community and support your goals for the future to live, love and thrive authentically.

I want to help you as an individual and in your relationships (monogamous, open, poly) live your truth. We’ll look at your relationship issues, toxic shame, internalized homophobia, and sex. I’ll help you reclaim self-love and self-worth and focus on what’s important to you.

It is my privilege to work with you and I will honor who you are and where you are.
