About Greg

 

My journey into psychotherapy and sex therapy began as a camp counselor and director, and later as a camp counselor trainer. I believe in the type of authenticity that occurs in the course of real human connection. My work as a therapist and sex therapist flows from my own journey of self-discovery as a gay man seeking authentic living, combined with exceptional training from my own mentors.

Therapy and particularly sex therapy require a robust level of trust between patient and therapist. Within that trust real growth happens. Whether you are exploring your gender or sexuality, navigating questions of faith or working through sexual challenges; I look forward to building a partnership with you that loosens bonds and emboldens your authentic self.
