Do you struggle with talking about feelings…when you feel a lot?
Is it difficult to navigate online dating…but you really want to meet someone?
Do you consider yourself SMART…but you make "dumb" choices around relationships?
Are you tired of relationships…where fighting increases and sex decreases?
Would you like a therapist…
Sexual orientation is one area of identity that can often place individuals on the "outside".
While there is no one way to be gay or lesbian, there can be pressure to succeed in a certain way that can cause anxiety for those who meet the criteria as well as those who have no desire to do so. I compassionately sit with men and women, without making assumptions about their lives, who seek to create a unique, joyful, and authentic expression of themselves as gay and lesbian individuals and members of society.
When there is a mismatch between what you KNOW and what you DO, the result can be anger, depression, anxiety, and self-loathing. Here is the good news--it is not you. Are you interested in exploring the choices you have made to survive and cope, so that you can decide which choices still work well? Do you want to deal with your fears and regrets without feeling negatively about yourself?
In Los Angeles, it can be difficult to feel supported in the process of living. Let's sit down and discuss who you are and who you wish to be, and allow yourself to feel supported in your journey, whether it be conventional or unconventional. I provide a space for exploration and discovery, and a way of listening and questioning that attends to the range of moods that result when carving your own way in this complex, vibrant, and often challenging city.
I am an active therapist, that can lead to you understanding what keeps you from getting where you want to be. Therapy can put you in a position to decide what is of value to you and what you would like to let go of.
I welcome smart individuals and couples who are ready to get to work. I offer psychotherapy that identifies and explores options and choices around relationship/dating/sexual issues with spouses, intimate partners, friends, family, jobs, yourself, your moods, and the world. The work I do is a specific discipline unlike any other, and I am committed to the results you want.
