Professional statement

I am a gay CBT therapist who is multiculturally competent and specializes in relationship issues and substance abuse. I am passionate about helping my clients achieve their mental health goals and live their best lives. I believe that everyone has the potential to change and grow, and I am committed to providing a supportive and affirming environment for my clients.

In my work, I draw on a variety of therapeutic approaches, including cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and relational therapy. I believe that CBT is a powerful tool for helping clients identify and change negative thinking patterns and behaviors. ACT can help clients learn to accept their thoughts and feelings without judgment, and to live a life that is consistent with their values. Relational therapy focuses on the importance of relationships in our lives, and can help clients to improve their communication and conflict resolution skills.

I am particularly interested in working with gay men and other LGBTQ+ individuals. I understand the unique challenges that LGBTQ+ people face, and I am committed to providing culturally competent care. I am also experienced in working with people from a variety of cultural backgrounds, and I am sensitive to the unique needs of each individual.

In my work with couples, I help them to improve their communication and conflict resolution skills, and to build a stronger relationship. I also work with individuals who are struggling with substance abuse. I help them to understand their addiction, develop coping mechanisms, and build a support system.

Message to clients

I believe that therapy is a collaborative process, and that the best results are achieved when the therapist and client work together. I am committed to providing my clients with the support and guidance they need to reach their goals. I am also committed to creating a safe and inclusive space where all clients feel welcome and respected.

I know that it can be difficult to take the first step in seeking therapy. You may be feeling overwhelmed, ashamed, or hopeless. But I want to assure you that therapy can help. I have seen firsthand the transformative power of therapy, and I am confident that it can help you to overcome your challenges and live a happier and more fulfilling life.

I understand that you may be struggling to believe that things can get better. But I want you to know that you are not alone. Millions of people struggle with relationship issues, substance abuse, and other mental health concerns. And millions of people have also found relief and healing through therapy.

If you are struggling with relationship issues, substance abuse, or any other mental health concerns, I encourage you to reach out for help. I would be honored to be a part of your journey to wellness.
