As one of the leading love coaches for the gay community, licensed dating and relationship coach Dr. Brian Rzepczynski, DHS, MSW has over 18 years experience as a psychotherapist and life coach specializing in helping GLBT individuals and couples develop and maintain successful and fulfilling intimate relationships (but he also works with men and women of all sexual orientations!).

He holds a doctorate degree in human sexuality from the Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality and a master’s degree in clinical social work from Western Michigan University.

In additon to his dating/relationship/sex coaching business, he also runs a successful private therapy practice, Personal Victory Counseling, Inc. He launched his relationship coaching business, The Gay Love Coach: Man 4 Man Coaching Services, in 2003 and is co-author of the self-help book “A Guide to Getting It: Purpose & Passion”.

His practical and helpful articles on gay dating, relationships, and sexuality have become popular reads all over the Web, including having been interviewed for articles in The Chicago Tribune, Esquire Magazine, and, and he is a regular featured writer and advice columnist for multiple online and print gay magazines and publications. He is also a sought-after speaker and has a strong passion and advocacy for furthering gay rights and respect for diversity.

A native of Kalamazoo, Michigan, Brian now lives in the Chicagoland area in Illinois with his partner of 12 years, Scott. When he’s not furthering his education in some way (he’s currently in the midst of a doctoral degree program) or engaging in writing projects, Brian’s non-professional pursuits include swimming, shopping, theatre, family and friends, outdoor fun, and definitely basking on the beach with margarita or martini in hand.
