I work primarily with the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual community but not exclusively.. The ideal GLB client is seeking gay affirmative clinical approaches to the therapy. Clients desire to explore what is keeping them from maximizing their potential as a personClient recognizes a need to examine oppressive societal structures that have impacted their lives and relating. The ideal client is not looking for a ‘quick fix’. Client acknowledges therapy takes time for growth. Bisexual clients will be looking for support not judgement from their therapist. Heterosexual clients will want a therapist who is empathic t and is motivated to attenuate conflict in their lives.I founded the first state licensed mental health clinic in the world for GLB persons in Boston. My clinical experience shows I do well with fair to moderately troubled persons with Personality Disorders. Necessity required HIV specialization.Group Therapy offered with persons having impaired relationships. I am conveniently located to the Venice/Sarasota/Bradenton/St. Petesburg areas.Anyone housebound, or in areas where gay therapy is unavailable, Online psychotherapy/ counseling via Skype is available. i was Instructor in Psychiatry (Pastoral Counseling) Boston University School of Medicine, Division of Psychiatry.
