LBGT Couples

Emotionally Centered Therapy

“Love is a wild fire that cannot be contained by any mere element known to man.”

Cristina Marrero


Gay or straight, we are all hardwired for intimacy

I provide individual therapy and couples counseling to sexual minorities, and have particular areas of expertise in the following areas:

  • Coming to terms with your sexuality
  • Coming out:  how, when, and to whom
  • Finding a good relationship
  • Working through relationship conflicts & difficulties
  • Setting the “rules” and dealing with cheating
  • Coming out later in life, possibly already married to an opposite-sex spouse & possibly with kids
  • Are you really right for each other?  Should you get legally married?
  • Depression and anxiety issues
  • Self-acceptance and self-confidence
  • Feelings of shame, guilt, or low self-esteem
  • Feelings of rejection or isolation
  • Drugs, alcohol, and codependency
  • Finding a partner who wants a long-term relationship
  • Mending broken hearts and learning to trust again
  • Anger and arguments
  • Gay parenting challenges
  • Having a healthy, mature, balanced sexuality & sexual expression
  • Sorting out issues of faith and spirituality
  • Rejection by your church
  • Managing difficult relationships with extended family

Coming out or maintaining an LBGT relationship can complicated. I can be a strong and supportive ally for you and your partner.

“I used to believe that marriage would diminish me, reduce my options. That you had to be someone less, to live with someone else when, of course, you have to be someone more.”
