With over 20+ years as a therapist, I help people break out of depression, find stability and feel more relaxed. With a warm, non-judgmental approach I'll help you explore those patterns causing you problems. Clear away your past to create a more fulfilling relationship to yourself and others. I'll ask you to think about yourself deeply and help you move toward your goals. Affirming toward transgender, LGBTIQQA & folks beyond the gender binary. Adults, teens and kids. Welcome to clients of color & se habla español. VIDEO SESSIONS for CA. Accessible building.

As seasoned Gender Therapist and Certified WPATH provider I have expertise in helping those considering gender transition. I do assessments and write letters for puberty blockers, hormones & surgeries. I teach & consult with therapists through video groups and individual consultation on clinical work with transgender, non binary & questioning clients.

Trauma can transform your life including whether you feel safe in the world. PTSD can result from a "single incident" like an accident, injury, assault, robbery, or death. Usually I can help you feel better in 3-8 EMDR sessions. Long trauma history? EMDR can be one great tool during longer-term therapy. Veteran? FREE trauma therapy w/me @getheadstrong.org

Con casi 20 años licenciada como terapeuta, ayudo gente quienes quieren sanar de trauma, ansiedad y depresión. Tengo experiencia escribiendo cartas para gente aplicando por asilo or luchando una deportación. Ademas, ayudo gente quienes son transgénero, no binario o los que quieren clarificar su sexualidad o género. He trabajado con la comunidad gay y transgénero desde 1999. Puedo ayudarle con las letras para los doctores y preparandole (y su familia) emocionalmente para cirugía y otros cambios de género. Oficina está ubicada en el vecindario de Lake Merritt en Oakland, California o por video para residentes de California.
