Growing up gay or bisexual raises special challenges for men wanting to be whole and integrated. You had to shut down or disconnect from parts of yourselves to survive in a homophobic culture. And survive you did. You may have even built a community of good friends and a “good life” for yourself. But eventually you may find yourself feeling anxiety, depression, frustration, unhappiness or a sense of aimlessness that won’t go away. This is often a sign that what you needed to do to survive isn’t working for you anymore.
Helping gay and bisexual men find their way to wholeness is one of my specialties.
Issues I work with include:
- Coming out
- Gay relationships
- Shame and Self-esteem
- Masculinity issues
- Sex addiction and other shadow aspects of sexuality
- Unhealthy use of drugs and alcohol
- Overcoming self-judgment
- Bisexuality and marriage conflicts
- Gay parenting
- Mid-life crisis
- Aging gracefully
