As a licensed independent clinical social worker (LICSW) with more than twenty years of experience, one thing I have learned is that we are all doing the best we can and sometimes we just need a little help. Wherever you are in your journey, I offer compassionate and affirming counseling and support.
Adults often consult with me for help making sense of their relationships with friends, partner, and family. Managing stress, anxiety, self-doubt, and sadness are also issues we can work on together. I also consult with parents and families who may need help connecting with their child/teen or young adult. Specialized services are also offered for parents & families and their gender-expansive/trans children, teens and young adults.
As an individual, couple and family systems therapist I specialize in transitions across the life cycle. Please reach out by text, phone or email so we can talk about how I can help you.

Dr. Bullock is passionate about therapy and connecting with people who take the step to show up to do this work because he’s witnessed time and again over the last 12 years how impactful and life-changing the work is. The experience of witnessing others realize how much they have changed from the process of therapy reminds him of how much we all need someone to help us to fully see ourselves and to have a space to make changes in our lives to get where we want to go. Or sometimes to help us know where we want to go. Dr. Bullock is looking forward to meeting you, and working collaboratively on making the changes you want for a more fulfilled and meaningful life.

LGBTQ couples counseling, sex therapy, and individual relationship therapy. I specialize in helping gay, lesbian, transgender, queer, and other couples create healthier relationships, improve communication, strengthen sexual intimacy, increase trust, and resolve other issues.
Working together, I can help you and your partner resolve problems that may seem overwhelming and guide you in creating the relationship you want, based on your needs rather than on the norms or expectations of others.
You’ll find an affirming, supportive environment and strategies to enable you to live your life together more fully and joyfully. Clients have told me that my warm, non-judgmental, and collaborative approach helps them feel comfortable working through difficult issues. Poly and kink-friendly.
