About three-quarters of my practice is devoted to individual therapy with gay men and counseling for gay couples. The remainder of my therapy hours are devoted to women, the parents of gay men, and others. I specialize in gay and bisexual issues, depression, anxiety, self-esteem, aging, trauma, personal isolation, relationships, intimacy, sex, HIV, and survivor issues. I have written extensively about the psychological and social issues of gay men and gay communities. My most recent book, released in June 2019 by Farrar, Straus and Giroux (and Penguin in the U.K.), is "Out of the Shadows: Reimagining Gay Men's Lives."

Live your truth. Follow your bliss. Do you. Sounds simple, right? Except that, all too often, we convince ourselves that who we are is not enough, that what we want is undeserved. So we stifle our talents, ignore our truth and deny our deepest desires. Before we know it, we’re living someone else’s life, satisfying everyone’s expectations but our own. All to earn the love and acceptance we don’t feel worthy of otherwise. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

I particularly enjoy working with transgender and gender queer youth and adults, as well as lesbian, gay and bisexual clients.
Living a life that feels true to ourselves may take additional support and understanding. Sometimes life becomes overwhelming, either because we are faced with trauma, loss, illness and other transitions, or because we are experiencing unexplained feelings that are keeping us in a stuck place. I would like to work together with you to help you better understand yourself and create the changes that you want to see in your life. My style is relational and authentic. I want you to feel supported and better able to become who you want to be. I use mindfulness and CBT when helpful.

I specialize working with queer, gay, bisexual , & transgender adults & adolescents in the San Francisco Bay Area. I am most passionate about providing advocacy for cultural and economic diversity in our community and serving LGBTQ+ people experiencing depression, anxiety, and PTSD. Engaging in therapy is more important than ever especially in response to our current political climate and recent backlash of conservative values showing incredible disrespect toward the LGBTQ community and throwing extra stress at immigrant populations and communities of Color.

U.S. society at large makes it easy to feel like we're not enough; late stage capitalism thrives off of our anxiety and disconnection. I am here to remind you of what you already know but might have forgotten: you are enough. Indeed, there's enough of everything for all of us. Many clients find their way to me because they want to work through challenges related to their identity, acculturation, sexuality, gender expression, relationship formation, and early traumas. My identities as a queer, non-monogamous, sex- and kink-positive, immigrant woman tend to attract potential clients who share some of these positionalities.

My clients are creative, questioning, and active in diverse communities. They often want a therapist who is both engaging and collaborative with the healing process. Someone who combines the skills of being transparent, supportive, and respectfully challenges them towards change. I have 18 years experience with adults, teens couples, and poly groups. I've led grief groups for those who've lost someone to suicide, managed programs for individuals struggling with severe mental illness, and have become an expert in clinically working with trauma with TAY (Transitional Aged Youth) who are young adult individuals between 18-25.

Do you feel lost? Disconnected from yourself? Like you're just not "you" anymore or you're not sure who you are now? Maybe you are in an abusive relationship, just left one, or have undergone a traumatic event or major life transition. You need help rediscovering and reconnecting with yourself. You might feel disappointed with what your life looks like and where you are at. Depression and anxiety have taken the forefront in your life and you want a way back to feeling like yourself, a way back to feeling healthy and interested in life again.

Your relationship with yourself is key to how happy you are at home, at work, and beyond. I collaborate one-on-one with clients to cultivate self-compassion and heal from old wounds so they can move from surviving to thriving. I act as a guide and sounding board, with a commitment to respecting each individual as the expert on their own experience. As a queer, genderfluid therapist and activist, I support partners in monogamous and consensual nonmonogamous relationships, and I’m committed to honoring and uplifting the lived experiences of people from underrepresented racial backgrounds, abilities, genders, and sexualities.

Choosing a therapist can be intimidating, especially for people of color. We might wonder if our therapist will understand the significant role of various cultural factors in our experience. I believe each individual brings with them a set of unique experiences, values, and goals, regardless of background. Perhaps you are an individual looking for a safe space to explore your identity, including ethnicity and gender. Maybe you are already in couples therapy and want the dedicated support of your own individual sessions. Or maybe you are having difficulty communicating with family members due to generational differences.

You may be struggling to find a therapist who understands how race and culture impact your experience of and in the world; who makes space for your exploration of gender identity and expression; who is accepting of your sexual preferences & practices. It may be the first time that you or someone in your family has reached out to a therapist; or, you may have left former experiences in therapy wishing that your therapist was more warm, authentic, approachable, or critical of the status quo. It's important for you to feel a sense of being seen in order to feel safe enough to explore your struggles.

Therapy provides such a rich opportunity for growth and learning, helping persons to recover from the aftermaths of trauma, abuse and loss, meet the hardships of their lives and thrive. In times like this, with so much anxiety about our collective welfare, it can be an invaluable lifeline. In response to the Coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, we are now offering teletherapy (therapy by phone and online by video) for all our clients, whether new or established. Also called telehealth or telebehavioral health, teletherapy can provide vital care and support to individuals, couples and families.

Folks come to therapy for a variety of reasons that all boil down to change, whether they're struggling to handle it or make it. Many of my clients' lives don't align with societal norms, either intentionally coloring outside the lines or struggling to fit in. Folks may find themselves overwhelmed, dealing with big emotions, the effects of complex or single-event trauma, complex medical issues, or chronic pain. I am passionate about working with the LGBTQ+ - including trans kids and their families, disabled, and neurodiverse populations. I like to work with individuals, couples, polycules, and families of all shapes and sizes.

Whatever brings my clients to me, I want to support them in feeling whole. This can mean learning how to safely unmask your Autism or ADHD, how to heal traumas old and new, how to learn new ways to approach challenges without shame, or how to bring compassion to chronically ill bodyminds. I specialize in working with neurodivergant children, teens, adults and couples of all kinds (romantic and otherwise). My young clients enjoy my playful interventions that help them feel confident and proud of being uniquely themselves. My adult clients are redelivered to tackle challenges without shame and ableism.
