About Eric Strauss's service

Eric Strauss is a dedicated and experienced therapist whose practice has a strong focus on serving the LGBTQ community. With years of experience, Eric provides support and guidance to individuals, couples, and families, helping them explore their past and present in order to address conflicts and alleviate stress. Through a deep examination of family dynamics and relationships, Eric helps clients develop a greater understanding of their present patterns and behaviors, addressing issues such as anxiety, low self-esteem, sexuality, and work problems. As a parent who has adopted, Eric also specializes in working with families and individuals navigating adoption and foster care issues. In his practice, Eric creates a safe and non-judgmental space for clients to explore their concerns and emotions, emphasizing acceptance and compassion inspired by eastern philosophy. Combining these principles with techniques in psychoanalytic psychotherapy, Eric offers a unique perspective as a gay man and psychotherapist, allowing him to truly understand and relate to the specific needs and challenges of the LGBTQ population. His practice extends to couples and adolescents, providing comprehensive support to individuals of all backgrounds.
