For LGBTQ+ couples, relationships can be very rewarding, and they can also be very difficult. Communication may be a problem between you and your partner. You may constantly argue. Your needs go unmet or ignored. You struggle to get your partner to understand you. Intimacy may break down. You're either tired of doing everything in the relationship, or you've done so much that you're ready to give up. You may hold your tongue to avoid arguments getting worse. Drugs and alcohol may come into play. On top of this, you face the additional stress that comes with being in an LGBTQ+ relationship - disapproving families, unsupportive people, odd looks from strangers, news and politics.
My name is Alfred. I am a licensed marriage and family therapist who specializes in LGBTQ+ couples and relationships. As part of the LGBTQ+ community, it is likely that you've been through a lot. You deserve a therapist who will take the time to listen and provide you a non-judgemental space of safety, comfort, healing, and confidentiality.
Although I specialize in LGBTQ+, I see clients from all walks of life. Couples, individuals, families, and teens are welcome. I've worked in mental health for about 10 years in a variety of settings including outpatient, residential rehab, program management, private practice, community mental health, and research. Call, email, or visit my website for more info.
