We all deserve to feel seen, included, and understood, no matter who we are. As an LGBTQ+ affirmative therapist, my aim is to help you better see yourself in all aspects of who you are, feel more included in relation to those around you, and experience a greater understanding of how you fit into a wider world. Maybe you’re exploring your non-binary gender for the first time. Maybe you’re supporting a transgender family member or partner. Maybe you’re working through relationship challenges as an LGBTQ+ person. Together, we can explore what “seen,” “included,” and “understood” mean for you and how you can achieve them.

At the core of my practice, Gender Wellness of Los Angeles (GWLA), I provide counseling for the transgender and non-binary community — and their families — at any point of the journey.
I’ve spent most of my 30+ years in private practice working with clients on issues related to gender identity. Until recently, transitioning was strictly thought of in binary terms: Male-to-Female (MtF), Female-to-Male (FtM). Today, thankfully, we have evolved to include gender non-binary models. Maybe, you identify as “trans,” “non-binary,” or some other term denoting gender variance. Or, perhaps, you’re the parent of a child that identifies this way. Putting labels aside, for the moment, the journey can be challenging and self-acceptance is key. We all long to be loved, but the love must come from within, too.

For my transgender clients, there are additional challenges.
Many people do not get the nurturing they should when they are growing up, so they have inaccurate pictures of themselves. This leads to anxiety, depression and low self-esteem. Therapy helps you process your experiences so that you can have a more realistic picture of who you are, feel better, and make life choices that work for you.

Most of us were taught that gender, like sexual orientation, was binary. We now know this is false. Gender non-conforming, genderqueer, non-binary, agender; gender IS fluid and exists ON a SPECTRUM. Many trans people have been afraid to embrace their true gender due to societal and familial ramifications. We are entering a new age when the need for trans people to remain in the shadows to "fit in" or "please others" is being transcended. I believe every trans person deserves a safe, well-informed and empathetic environment to consider the impacts of transphobia and the destruction it leaves in it's wake. Trans is beautiful!

Maybe you need a brain organizer, or a reality checker, or a reaction approver, or a crisis stabilizer, or an existential dread container. Maybe you need a partner and witness as you confront difficult experiences or mourn losses. Maybe you feel stuck and don't know why. Or you are struggling with the disruption and distress of anxiety or depression. Or feel ready to dive into personal exploration and growth. Whatever the reason you might be seeking therapy, you deserve to be heard and supported.

So here you are, searching for a therapist. Maybe you have been thinking about starting this process for a while or maybe today is the day you decide to finally take the leap. Many people come to therapy for the first time or even after several other times because old traumas are resurfacing, daily life isn’t as enjoyable as before, or relationships are not as fulfilling and meaningful as they used to be. Wherever you are in your journey, I want you to know that I recognize that taking that first step is NOT easy. It’s funny how often we can love and support others, but how difficult it can be to actually do the same for ourselves.

Often times a family or couple may need to be treated together. We can discuss this when you call. There is hope, joy and meaning for you.
