serving serving a radically welcoming, progressive, inclusive community with a strong LGBTQ presence.
Religion, however, is never raised in therapy session unless the client wishes to discuss issues related to it.
You may be feeling confused and alone, and you may find it hard to share how you feel, especially with those who are closest to you.
It can feel too risky, and you may be concerned that others won’t understand.
What's important is recognizing what triggers the tension and learning how to manage it.
The causes of stress are many and too long to list all of them here.
I have worked with the LGBTQ community since 1990, at first in New Haven where, in addition to my private practice I worked as HIV/AIDS Counseling Coordinator for the AIDS Care Program at Yale-New Haven Hospital and as a volunteer therapist for AIDS Project New Haven.
While I have worked with a number of straight clients and very much enjoy that experience, the majority of my clients have been members of the LGBTQ community.
My clients also find that it is helpful to talk to someone outside of their family and friends who will offer an objective opinion.
If your insurance only covers therapists on your managed care panel, it will not cover my services.
I will be happy to give you a monthly invoice to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement of out-of-network benefits.
The professional fee for each session is 0 for individuals and 0 for couples.
I have intentionally kept my fee fairly competitive so that it is affordable for my clients. Together we will negotiate how frequent our sessions will be based on your needs and financial situation.
