Is your sexual or gender identity something you have struggled to feel comfortable with, maybe since you were young? Are you navigating your identity-formation or coming-out process and needing positive support? I help adults and teenagers embrace their LGBTQ+ identities, plan transition steps to eliminate Gender Dysphoria, and cope with minority stress. I also help with mental health concerns like depression, anxiety, stress management, unresolved trauma, self-esteem, & more. My practice is open and affirming, and I am committed to helping and respecting LGBTQ+ clients from all faiths and walks of life. No judgment or criticism here, ever!
My focus is LGBTQ+ Affirmative Therapy because everyone deserves to be supported, understood, and celebrated during their therapy experience. My therapy environment is especially for the LGBTQ+ population, who has historically had few resources available to them in our area. I provide Hormone & Surgery letters for transgender clients, after evaluation.
Let's connect for a free, brief conversation about your situation so that we can both decide if therapy with me is the best "fit" for you. If you are a Florida resident, but not near my office, we can even chat about meeting via video conference! See you soon!
