Individual, relationship, and group therapy.  I also do online counseling at reduced rates.  Four decades of experience, with a wide variety of clients, diagnoses, and presenting problems.

Pioneer in LGBTQ community mental health (Boston 1971).


Practical down-to-earth help, with a touch of humor.  I consider you to be the expert on yourself and your situation.  My role is to help you affirm your self-worth, and to find solutions within yourself, for the problems and issues you are dealing with.  I will work with you to gain insight, practice mindfulness, learn relaxation techniques, increase body awareness, and enhance your self-image.  Special focus on negative and self-defeating thinking, which can affect your feelings in significant ways.


Alternative lifestyles and sexualities are my specialty.  Familiar with both the pansexual kink and gay leather communities.  Knowledgeable about BDSM and other kinks, with boots on the ground experience.  Informed and positive about gender identities and expression; polyamory and nontraditional families; sex workers and performers; and sex offenders who are motivated to change.


Approved provider for Medical Assistance, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Health Partners, Preferred One, and UCare.  Other insurance, if it pays out-of-network.  Flexible fee policy for direct pay clients.
