Current Practice

Eric is a Masters of Social Work Intern at the University of Denver.

As a therapist, Eric focuses on sexuality, intimate relationships, gender, and identity. He believes that paths to happiness and fulfillment are unique to every individual and, therefore, must be approached from an individualized, judgment-free perspective. And as a bisexual who spent his twenties navigating queer, kink, and poly spaces in New York City, he’s well-versed in a broad spectrum of lifestyles. While he’s happy to work with anyone who would like to better relate to their sexuality, partner(s), or self, he’s particularly fluent in LGBT+ issues, alternative sexual interests, and non-monogamy. He approaches these from a blend of behavioral, person-centered, and interpersonal models but is always capable of modifying his method depending on client needs.
