Interpersonal Psychotherapy Group For Gay Men

Welcome To Our Gay Men's Group

This image depicts two men sitting together smiling beneath a tree.Gay Men’s Group: As gay men, we can encounter loneliness and isolation, difficulty meeting other gay men for romantic partners or friends, substance abuse, familial challenges, difficulty navigating relationships, and impediments to finding joy, meaning, and purpose in our lives.

Additionally, within our own community, we tend to reject those who do not fit neatly into gay societal norms. All too often, we feel left out, judged, and miss out on a sense of belongingness. Our group meetings frequently explore these issues within the gay community.

Goals for the group include:

  • Increase self-awareness and feelings of meaningful connection within your interpersonal relationships.
  • Improve feelings of belongingness and relatedness to other gay men.
  • Exploration of relationship experiences, coming out, discrimination, and your role in society as a gay man.

When: Wednesdays from 8:15am-9:30am

Where: In Dupont Circle at 2000 P St NW, Suite 408, Washington, DC 20036.

Group Leader: David A. Heilman, Psy.D.
