Therapy for Gay Men
Therapy for Gay Men in San Francisco
Whether you identify as gay or bi, sometimes it can be can helpful to work with a gay therapist. It can be hard enough dealing with depression, anxiety or relationship stress without the added fear of being misunderstood.
Are you tired of doing everything on your own? Perhaps there are things in your past you’d like to deal with and put behind you, but you’re not sure how.
From my office in Hayes Valley, San Francisco, I offer one-on-one, relationship and group therapy for gay, bi and trans men.
Imagine what would happen if you worked through your pain
As gay men we often become experts at hiding our vulnerability. There's always something we hold back and keep for ourselves. Imagine what it would be like to be fully yourself. What would that even feel like?
Build stronger relationships.
Through the process of therapy we can work together to better understand how growing up as a gay, bi or trans man has helped shape the person you are today.
Find better ways to deal with stress, anxiety or sadness.
In our society, men are not always encouraged to explore their feelings or come to understand more about their internal world. By coming to know more about yourself it will be easier for you to connect with others.
