Dominic Welcomes You

Professional Specializations

The experience has been great and I am completely comfortable with my therapist. Dominic has helped me make better decisions in my life, that has improve my relationship with my partner, and myself. Also, I am understanding life with a little bit more clarity and not second judging my own thoughts. I look forward to my weekly sessions and will continue my relationship with Dominic until further notice!

Safe and Confidential

A bit about me:

10+ years of experience providing LGBTQ Affirmative individual and couples therapy to adults struggling with relationship issues, intimacy, poor self-esteem, sex/porn addiction, substance abuse, trauma, infidelity, anxiety and depression. I received my Certification in Sex Addiction Therapy after completing 20+ hours of modules and trainings and 30+ hours of supervision.

 

I offer a unique experience in therapy focusing on providing you a warm, compassionate therapeutic relationship to help you understand your patterns and providing you with real-life skills to build healthy relationships, manage stress, and reconnect to your authentic self.

 

I aim to to bring back the long-lost art of (actually) listening to you in therapy - each client is unique and deserving of truly being listened to and understood BEFORE offering guidance. In an age of "always on," we forget to slow down, tell your story and circumstances, and to be heard and understood - not just listened to. My passion is working with relationships and self-identified LGBTQ individuals as well as their allies.
