My Expert Service

I have 22 years of experience as a licensed psychotherapist as well 9 years as a life coach trained by MentorCoach. In addition I have had an academic career as university-based sociologist who pioneered a course in the sociology of human sexuality and taught it for 25 years. I use cognitive and behavioral approaches to help people change their lives by focusing on the thoughts and actions that hinder achieving their goals. I have read widely and traveled to close to fifty different countries and am aware that gays, bisexuals and transgendered persons have to deal with special concerns in specific countries and cultures.
