Payam Ghassemlou MFT, Ph.D.

I provide affirmative counseling for lesbian, gay, bisexual,transgender, and queer members of our community. Many LGBTQ+ people prefer to work with a gay identified therapist who can deeply understand and empathize with their life challenges. I am grateful to have the honor of providing gay affirmative counseling for over twenty years and witness the growth of many LGBTQ people.

I believe what is happening on the outside is a reflection of what is happening on the inside. How far the LGBTQ community has come in their struggle for equal rights is truly a reflection of how brave we are inside. Our bravery can continue when faced with personal challenges, and we can liberate ourselves from issues that interfere with building a more satisfying life. Everyone deserves support in dealing with life challenges, and psychotherapy can be a wonderful resource.

In addition to working with LGBTQ people, I have over two decades experience providing psychotherapy for heterosexual people who appreciate receiving an empowering and non judgmental counseling approach. As a licensed marriage and family therapist, my mission is to help people, regardless of their sexual orientation, to live a happier and more successful life.

Feel free to call me with any questions you might have regarding my counseling services or to schedule an initial consultation.
