Are you struggling with sexual identity questions?  Do you feel burdened by excessive fear? Do you desire to live life more joyfully, free from obsessive compulsive scrupulosity? If so, I am here to help! 

As a clinician trained in Reintegrative Therapy, which is an evidence-based approach shown to treat trauma memories and trigger spontaneous shifts in client’s sexual feelings as a result, I believe people deserve access to therapeutic support which will help them resolve sexual difficulties in a manner in line with their sincerely held religious beliefs. I specialize in helping men with distressing sexual feelings and behaviors, especially those with same-sex sexualized attachments and obsessive compulsive disorder, to pursue psychological and spiritual healing, in order live more joyfully and to be as free as possible to pursue their God-given calling in life.   

As a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor and Marriage and Family Therapist, I utilize a combination of evidence-based modern psychotherapy methods and sound philosophical psychology rooted in Catholic anthropology to support client goals.

Whether you are struggling with low self-worth, obsessive compulsive disorder/scrupulosity, or sexual identity confusion, I want to help you learn to embrace the gift of your loveable self and reintegrate your emotional life in way that leads you to greater freedom and peace! Healing is possible and therapy is a helpful part of this journey for many people. Contact me today!

Michael Gasparro is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in California. He is passionate about the intersection of faith and psychology. His clinical experience and practice emphasizes helping men who seek assistance in addressing their issues of same-sex attractions and obsessive compulsive disorder/scrupulosity in accordance with Catholic teaching. Michael trained for four years under the supervision of Dr. Joseph Nicolosi Jr. in the Reintegrative Therapy® method, which is an evidence-based approach shown to treat trauma memories and trigger spontaneous shifts in client’s sexual feelings as a result. He utilizes this expertise, among his other clinical training and influences, such as the work of Dr. Conrad Baars, in crafting counseling methods to best help clients who present with distress about same-sex attractions, obsessive compulsive disorder/scrupulosity, or other issues related to emotional health and wellbeing.

As such, he is a regular guest on various Catholic media outlets such as "The Drew Mariani Show" and "Trending with Timmerie" on Relevant Radio and "Life on the Rock" on Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN). Michael also serves on the board of directors for The Alliance for Therapeutic Choice and Scientific Integrity, which is an organization dedicated to helping further the research and treatment of issues related to human sexuality informed by Judeo-Christian values, and he is a clinical member of the Catholic Psychotherapy Association.
