As a counselor I help Same Sex Couples prepare for marriage

During our sessions together I will share with you ways to fortify your foundation so that you can weather more smoothly the storms that come your way, coming out stronger as a Couple.

I have experience counseling Same Sex Couples in the LA area since the mid-1990’s. It has been my pleasure to assist gay men and lesbian couples in resolving some of the inevitable issues that arise from falling in love and building a life together. Here are some of the topics we can cover together on our PreMarital Sessions.
