I believe successful healing begins with good rapport–the emotional trust connection–between the counselor and the client. A positive, growth-oriented healing relationship can only be formed between people who like each other. Although gender and sexuality are my specialties, this is not my only focus. I have the same education and training and experience acquired by most other counselors. So let’s find out, first and foremost, if we like one another. Your sexuality is a serious subject. Your intimate identity, your desires and your fears must be respected with the highest regard. You need someone you can trust when difficulties arise in your inner life. Although no amount of training can replace honesty and positive regard, my experience with a variety of issues allows me an excellent perspective from which to help you.
