Are you yearning to live a more healthy authentic life? Is something stopping you right now? I am passionate about working with the LGBTQIA community and I am affirming of all of my clients. Together, we will help you lead a healthier more authentic life and be your true self. I use solution focused therapy, CBT and mindful self compassion so you can be happier and healthier and your true you. We will work together to overcome what makes you anxious or explore and begin your gender transition. I enjoy working with preteens, teens and adults.

I work with the LGBTQIA community as an affirming therapist who understands the community. I specialize in working with transgender and non-binary clients as well as clients that are feeling overwhelmed and anxious about work, school, home or friends. I also write gender affirming hormone and surgery letters for my clients.

As part of my practice, I offer expert and convenient care for my clients in person and video throughout Georgia and throughout South Carolina via video. You can schedule appointments online anytime at my website. Please call or email for a free consultation.
