Gay, Bi and Queer Men


Men who are attracted to men have specific and important needs.

Men who are attracted to men have specific and important needs.

Many places around the world are becoming accepting of the LGBTQAI community, but that doesn’t mean that individuals in the Gay, Bi or Queer (GBQ) community feel safe or connected.  GBQ men are often filled with shame, loneliness and depression.   Coming out is a rite of passage that GBQ men often go alone, into a homophobic and heteronormative society, and without mentors to guide them. Consequently, many turn to alcohol, drugs, casual sex and other compulsive behaviors in order to cope with the pain and isolation they feel.

I’m here to let you know that there is hope.  

As an out and proud therapist, I understand the complexity of growing up with fear, marginalization and not fitting societies idea of a “man”.  I was blessed to have the unconditional love of family and friends, and I strive to pay it forward through understanding, resourcing and support for you.

I specialize in addressing the issues and needs of men who are attracted to men and have extensive training in helping GBQ men move through the problems specific to our community.

Some of these issues may be:

  • Depression or Anxiety                                 
  • Disconnection from ” The Community”
  • Body issues                                                  
  • Loneliness & Dating struggles
  • Alcohol & Drug use                                      
  • Coming out
  • Gender non-conformity                               
  • Online or sex addictions
  • Sexual issues   

I’d like to help you or someone you care about find the support needed. Call me at (415) 890.3773

 

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Who am I not to be?"
