I want to help my clients identify and meet the goals that are right for them, rather than those that fit society's expectations. These often include developing a strong identity, forming and maintaining satisfying relationships, and living authentically. Another part of my work is consulting with other providers and institutions about affirmative practices with transgender/LGBTQ people. I am available for speaking engagements, trainings, and ongoing consultation groups for mental health/medical practices, schools and universities, and in corporate settings. I also conduct surgical and hormone evaluations.
I am experienced in understanding diverse identities, including gender and sexual identities, relationship problems, and other common psychological and life concerns. In addition to individual and couple therapy, I also provide short-term gender assessment/transition planning for children and adults, as well as hormone/surgical evals.
It is my passion to help people feel safe being themselves, discovering their passions, and feeling more comfortable in their bodies, relationships, and in their own minds. Please click on my website to learn more about my practice and services. I look forward to meeting you and understanding how I can help.
