As an affirming provider for LGBTQ, transgender and gender expansive clients, my practice centers around supporting this community. If you want to explore your gender identity and/or sexuality, overcome anxiety and panic attacks, or work through relationship stress or I can help you. If you are seeking a secular, gender affirming therapist to walk with you through your gender transition, I can walk with you. If you are unsure if you want to stay in your relationship, lets process that together. I use mindful self-compassion, solution focused therapy and CBT that allows me to work with teenagers and adults alike.
I specialize in working with transgender and gender expansive clients and members of the LGBTQIA community. I am a secular therapist who has completed additional training for my WPATH GEI certification specializing in working with children and adolescents and adults. I also write WPATH soc v7 gender affirming hormone and surgery letters for my clients.
I know it's hard to find a LGBTQIA and gender affirming, secular therapist in the Southeast. I opened my practice to serve you and I have continuously received training to do so. I offer expert and convenient care for my clients in person in Decatur, GA and video throughout Georgia, Florida and South Carolina. Call or email me for a free consultation.
