I am San Francisco based psychotherapist, educator, researcher, and author. I have been in private practice for 17 years working with a wide range of people and issues. I am experienced in working individuals, couples, groups, and families with issues involved in traditional, alternative, bi, and poly lifestyles and relationships. I am openly bisexual and known in the community for my work with bisexual, gay, lesbian, queer, and questioning people.
My particular interests as a therapist include helping with: overcoming depression and anxiety; enhancing self-expression and creativity; using self-reflection and meditation for personal growth and self-discovery; acknowledging and maintaining a self-affirming bisexual, gay, or lesbian identity; understanding and healing from childhood physical, sexual and emotional abuse; facing and working with ACA/ co-dependency/substance and other recovery and family of origin related issues; understanding sexuality and intimacy in relationships; working with issues of monogamy, non-monogamy, and polyamory in relationships; and enhancing communication skills for everyday situations and for negotiating the structure and details of consensual adult relationships.
I conducted the first large-scale study on bisexual identity and have contributed several chapters on bisexuality to LGBT psychology books. I have presented workshops on sexual diversity & bisexual issues at professional conferences, graduate schools, and community agencies, as well as at U.S. and international conferences on bisexuality. I am a member of the editorial board of the Journal of Bisexuality and the guest editor of special issues of the Journal on current research on bisexuality and on affirmative psychotherapy with bisexual women and bisexual men. I was a member of the Task Force that wrote the recently adopted American Psychological Associations Guidelines for Psychotherapy with LGB Clients. I am Co-Chair of the Committee on Bisexual Issues in Psychology of the APAs Division 44 (Society for the Psychological Study of LGB Issues).
