Frequently asked questions
Do you accept insurance?
I do not accept insurance.
Is online counseling as effective as in-person counseling?
Yes! Recent studies are confirming this to be true. I personally have experienced an equal amount of success with clients online as I did when I had an in-person practice.
I don't identify as gay/male, or don't know yet how I identify, can I still see you?
Yes, usually. My expertise is working with gay men, however I have experience working with all members of the LGTBQ community and individuals whose identity is changing. Sign up for a free session with me and we can discuss your unique story and decide if we are a good fit together.
Do you see polyamorous or non-traditional relationships for counseling?
Yes. I have extensive experience working with these types of relationships/family groups and can help you in your specific relational expression.
Do you see children?
I do not see children. In certain circumstances I may see adolescents (age 13-17), please inquire for more details. I do not offer family therapy (therapy with adults and children).
Are you kink friendly?
Yes. My therapy practice comes from a sex-positive approach. This means that if you're coming to therapy to work on sexuality, whether yours is the most vanilla or kinkiest sex anyone has ever heard of -- and anything in between -- I will help you acheive the healthiest expression of your particular sexuality.
Do you offer sliding-scale?
No, not at this time.
How do I know if what I experienced was sexual abuse?
Everyone's experience of sexuality and sexual interactions is different. Childhood sexual abuse is particularly complicated for gay men who already experience a cultural shame around their developmental sexuality. My purpose at GMCA is to help you understand the particularity of your story, heal from any lingering symptoms that hold you back, and thrive in who you are. There is space to make sense of what happened to you and empower you in your story moving forward, no matter how we define what happened to you.
