Gay and Lesbian Counseling and Psychotherapy

San Francisco and San Mateo:

Want help from a therapist who really “gets” you and your relationships?

As a Gay or Lesbian person you face an awful lot. It’s different than it is for straight people, and even the best straight therapist can make your feel like you’re somehow different.
a
Gay people build fantastic relationships, when they know how…
Every day, we build great relationships, recover from depression, anxiety, low self esteem, relationship problems and overcome obstacles straight people know little or nothing about.
a
Stop acting, believing and feeling ways that don’t help!
I show gay and lesbian people how to handle the thoughts and feelings that get in the way of building the lives they dream about.

Gay and Lesbian people face unique stresses in our culture.

For many, the coming out process is one that lasts a lifetime. Negative gay stereotypes, subtle discrimination, unhealthy family dynamics, political, social and religious bias can all take their toll.

In the face of forces like these, counseling or therapy can help you thrive by:
  • Improving your self esteem
  • Stopping complusive behaviors
  • Building intimate relationships that feel great
  • Learning the keys to effectively dealing with straight friends and family
  • Showing you how to get rid of the distance or the friction in your relationships
  • Teaching you tools for managing and reducting negative emotions
  • Helping you to manage difficult emotions
