Congratulations on making the decision to investigate therapy.

For many, this decision is made during stressful times; unfulfilling relationships, difficult situations, family tensions or just depression, anxiety or anger can often be the catalysts that bring people to seek a counselor. Welcome, please explore our website to learn more about the services we can offer you, and the benefits of psychotherapy.

  • Men’s Issues

    • Are you having a hard time deciding what it means to be a man in the 21st century?
    • Can't resolve the traditional masculine model, with the postmodern attempts to redefine the male persona?
    • Having problems expressing emotions?
    As a man who has struggled with questions of my 'place' and what behaviors were 'appropriate' I am intimately familiar with struggle to reconcile the varied projections of manhood that have created a generation mired in fear, shame, avoidance, anger, and self sabotage. I can help you find your core values and authentic self.
  • Helping Every Relationship.

    • Getting serious, just popped the question, or are you in an established relationship that isn't satisfying your needs?
    • Are you Polyamorous, Ethically Non-Monogamous, Sex positive or Kinky and you want a counselor who understands you?
    As a married gay man in a 14 year stable relationship, and as a professional having direct experience educating and supporting the sex-positive and kink communities I combine the most successful therapeutic approaches to couples and relationship counseling with a panorama of insights into the complexity of all relationship systems.
  • LGBTQ, Allies and Families.

    • Do you want a counselor who is familiar with gender and sexual minorities?
    • Are you facing 'coming out', or having problems with self acceptance?
    • Did a friend, family member or your child just come out, or did you discover the secret you haven't been told?
    As a member of the Gay community I have experienced the pain and the pride of living my authentic self. As a community organizer I have worked with sexual minority youth, parents and families coming to grips with their concerns, and serving as a bridge of understanding.
