Diversity Friendly

I am a fairly opened-minded therapist, friendly to most alternative life styles and orientations.  I say this because this is important to clients coming from such life styles or orientations.

Although I am a straight male, I work well with bi, gay and lesbian populations.  I work well with this population because I had the opportunity to confront my own homophobia – this mostly freed me of my own internal fears around homosexuality.

I do not have much experience though with cross-dressing, transgenders or transsexuals.  I don’t think I have a bias here – just not much experience.

I am fairly sensitive to cross-cultural issues and work well with minority populations.  I am not as knowledgeable about some populations as others – in those cases you may be better served by another therapist.  If you would like to work with me, I would enjoy learning more about your particular culture.
