Areas of Diversity: 

Sexuality, Spirituality, Culture, & Ethnicity

We are each a mix of different values, influences, and beliefs. A person usually feels comfortable and whole when these diverse areas are in agreement. Unfortunately, we often struggle when there is a conflict between who we are, what we believe, or what our communities believe.

For example:

Can psychotherapy be helpful?

Counseling and psychotherapy is often beneficial in helping people find perspective on their struggles and can assist in making sensible life decisions.  Integrating and reconciling what matters most to us can be healing.  I warmly welcome those who may want to discuss their “ex-gay” experiences. While I understand the desire for some to use methods such as “reparative therapy” to change one’s sexuality, I do not endorse or utilize these approaches in my practice.
