Buck Dodson

for Gay Men, Women and Couples


Hi, I’m Buck (yes, it’s my real name). I’m here to help you feel better, think more clearly, act with intention, and love with all your heart. I’m a licensed therapist, and I’ve been counseling gay men, women, couples, and leaders since 2005.

I can help you...

  • Rediscover yourself through a life transition

  • Enjoy healthier, more fulfilling relationships

  • Heal from grief and loss

  • Recover from self-defeating habits and behaviors

  • Cultivate self-worth, confidence, and love


Individual counseling helps you:

  • Increase self-worth,

  • get clarity, and

  • make meaning by paying closer attention to your feelings, thoughts, beliefs, and choices.

Together we’ll cultivate self-compassion so you feel better about yourself, help you work effectively with your feelings and thoughts, learn to use your body as a resource to stay more grounded, and understand how your past relates to the present, what’s holding you back and how to move forward in your life.

Whether I’m helping you individually or in your relationship, my style is warm, caring and attentive. I strive to cultivate an inviting, relaxed atmosphere environment where you’ll feel safe and fully supported.


Since few of us enter our relationships with a playbook, couples counseling is a valuable tool to help you and your partner learn to create a secure, fulfilling and intimate relationship.

I’ll help you:

  • feel closer to each other,

  • resolve gridlock issues,

  • communicate directly and with empathy,

  • deepen sexual connection, and

  • foster love and affection for yourselves and each other.

Since we might work closely together, I figure you may want to know a little about me and why I do this work...



Even if you don’t feel ready, I encourage you to go ahead and reach out. I offer a free 20-minute phone consultation so we’ll start with that and go from there. You’re on your way to feeling better, and I look forward to hearing from you!

Hi, Buck. I’d like to speak with you about:

Let me tell you a little about myself, what I’m looking for, and the best times to reach me.

I will never sell or share your email address with others. Please read my Privacy Policy for more details.
