I am a licensed psychotherapist in San Francisco
and my special focus is counseling with men.
Gay or straight (or unlabeled), older or younger, partnered or single, men face a lot of challenges in our lives, and our society complicates them by sending us very mixed messages.
We are supposed to be more caring and sensitive and we are also supposed to "man up." The woes of the world are somehow our fault because we're just too...male. And men who don't fit the standard model feel like outsiders.
All this adds to the confusion when we develop stressful problems with our jobs, our relationships or our own habits, thoughts and emotions (and yes, men do have emotions!).
When things build up and we run into a wall or fall into a rut, we could use some help in working things out with someone who will take us as we are. And go from there.
It's been my privilege for over fifteen years to be
an ally to other men at these times.
