LGBT Therapist Online for Texas - Dallas, Fort Worth, San Antonio, Austin, Houston, El Paso & More!
Finding the right LGBT therapist online can prove a daunting task, to be certain. Many of my psychotherapy clients come to me after having felt frustrated by previous therapists. I regularly hear horror stories about clients having been in therapy with the same counselor for many months or even years and never really feeling as though the therapist actually helped them. One refrain I commonly hear from clients is that past therapists "just let me vent" and "didn't really show me how to fix anything." I don't think all talk therapies (or counselors) are equal. In fact, some types of psychotherapies have been proven to be incredibly effective and to work in a relatively short period of time. Whether you are located in Dallas, Fort Worth, San Antonio, Austin, Houston, El Paso, Lubbock, Galveston, Waco (or any other part of Texas)--I'm confident that I can help you become the person you've always wanted to be.
As an openly gay man myself, I understand the unique challenges, which confront the LGBT community. Although I would describe my approach to online therapy as eclectic, incorporating aspects of several different counseling approaches, I especially use cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and the Gottman Method in my work with individuals and couples in counseling. Both approaches are considered "evidence-based", meaning that there is a substantial amount of research, attesting to the effectiveness of these approaches. In fact, CBT has been shown to be even more effective than antidepressant medications in some circumstances. I have had formal training beyond my academic training in cognitive-behavioral therapy for depression and anxiety, as well as Level 2 training in the Gottman Method for couples therapy.
Although I have worked with a variety of mental health conditions, my specialties include depression, anxiety, codependency, substance use, alcohol use, domestic violence, suicidality and self-harming, couples therapy, and LGBT issues. Let's get together and talk about how I can help you become the person you've always endeavored to be--individually or as part of a couple.
