C.R.E.A.T.E. Outcomes® for LGBTQ People
At C.R.E.A.T.E. Outcomes, I specialize in helping youth and adults who identify as LGBTQ achieve their goals through affirming and competent practices. Gay men and lesbian women face many challenges that are specific to them. It is important to find a therapist that understands your unique experience as a queer person in a culture that promotes heterosexuality as the norm. Whether it’s past traumas or internalizing the stigma that we have been exposed to, we all have life events that impact the way we see the world today. For queer people, our worldview may be impacted by our time in the closet, messages we receive from media, and the different communities we belong to.
As a gay man and therapist, I am passionate about helping other LGBTQ individuals bring their stories into therapy in a holistic way. For queer people, having a holistic approach in therapy means working with someone who can understand and relate your past experiences to the stressors that you face today, whether they be traumas or day-to-day life issues.
It is important to me that all my clients feel in control of their therapy process. I offer a safe, secure and inclusive environment. I specialize in working with trauma through traditional talk therapy, EMDR, and expressive interventions. Please reach out to me to learn more about what therapy could be like for you.
