About

Doing psychotherapy is a lot like playing jazz: The challenge for me as therapist is to stay in tune with the patient's own creative, self-healing process and to provide a safe container ("rhythm section"). The patient's life narratives are the "melodies" to be composed, developed, & improvised. My ideal patient is motivated to show up and do the work involved in creating/healing and to allow the therapeutic relationship to support the work. My private practice (The Androgyny Center) serves adult patients of all genders. I also do consultations with families and professionals regarding developmental issues re gender and sexual orientation.
Experience with a full range of adult patients, with specialization in services for LGBT, individuals and couples. Provide diagnostic assessments, as well as psychotherapy, and encourage teamwork with the patient's other providers, especially med management.
