Have the courage to be who you really are! I am passionate working with LGBTQ and transgender clients, and I affirm my clients. You might know who are but need to process how to get there. Anxiety about whether your family, friends or work will accept you could consume you. It can become hard to sleep and hard to feel good in your current body. You need to have the courage to be yourself in your own identity and overcome your anxiety. I can help. I use mindful self-compassion, solution focused therapy and CBT to practice the tools that will allow you to be who you really are and be calm and proud of yourself and happy.

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. I am a secular therapist.

As part of my practice, I offer expert and convenient care for my clients in person in Decatur, GA and video throughout Georgia and South Carolina. Call or email me for a free consultation.
