Announcement icon Given the current coronavirus situation all therapy sessions are provided using video conferencing technology.
I specialize in trauma focused EMDR, substance use issues, and the care and treatment of the LGBTQIA community including transgender folk. I have developed a practice serving this very vulnerable and under-served population including trans women of color. As a male to female transgender person and a mental health professional I provide culturally specific services to the LGBTQIA community. I am an expert in the care and treatment of people living with or at high risk for HIV. In addition, I work with youth and their families maintaining a family systems perspective meaning I involve the whole family when treating youth.
I offer Individual, group and family psychotherapy. My greatest strength is developing a trusting, safe and caring counseling relationship with those I serve. Depending on my clients goals I provide trauma focused EMDR, insight oriented therapy, solution focused brief therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy.
I remember the day I came clean with a therapist over 30 years ago starting my journey to supporting others. I learned that shared joy is double joy and shared sorrow is half sorrow. We can do both together.

TransVoice

TransVoice is a voice work and empowerment circle for trans folk. I have teamed up with Ariella Forstein a voice coach to provide this resource to the transgender community.
