Integrative Psychology LGBTQ Affirmative
Matthew Silverstein, Ph.D.
Covid-19 update: all services are offered through telepsychology (video conferencing or phone) until further notice (available to California residents).
As a licensed clinical psychologist with over twenty years of experience both in community mental health and in private practice settings, I specialize in treating psychological trauma and related anxiety, depression, and addictive behaviors using an integrative approach anchored in current research, a mindfulness orientation, and a holistic sensibility.
My life as a gay man as well as the focus of my clinical training and practice, research, teaching work, and community service provide the foundation for my LGBTQ affirmative approach. I view sexual and gender variety as entirely natural forms of self-expression often thwarted by misguided oppressive cultural beliefs like trans/homophobia.
