Alfie, how can you help me?
I approach therapy in a way that embraces a positive view of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, asexual, and all other sexual and gender minorities. I acknowledge that coming out is important, but it isn’t everything . I understand that every person is unique and deserves to be treated as such. I treat my clients with respect and dignity, and affirm who they are in a we all deserve. Regarding work in therapy, I start with the things that are most important to my clients and go from there. I work with individuals, couples, families, and teens.
Why choose a gay therapist?
I am a proud gay male therapist. I’m married to my partner of whom makes life absolutely worth living; however, my happiness with my partner comes at a price. It comes with decades of enduring homophobia in varying degrees and in various circumstances. I’ve had to navigate those challenges myself and have gained more balance both as a multicultural gay man and as a therapist… but what does this mean for you?
It is important to consider the potential advantages of choosing a gay-identified therapist. Studies show that gay-identified therapists are rated as being significantly more helpful to gays and lesbians than male heterosexual therapists. Gay-identified therapists may have a greater understanding of issues related to sexuality, gender, gender expression, heterosexism, homophobia, and dealing with hate.
