To the person in the process of transgender transition, I can offer counseling, education, and empathic acceptance.
Life can sometimes seem a painful and distressing journey. We may struggle with feelings and thoughts and may come to believe people around us do not understand us or appreciate the situation in which we find ourselves. When this happens, it can feel like our goals and and dreams are quickly receding out of reach. We search not only for the reasons for our distress but importantly relief and resolution to bring us back to the calm and safe harbor of our previous state of mind and daily routines. You have tried several approaches and strategies and yet here you are. Nevertheless, each step brings hope and resolution.

Much of my work is with clients struggling with anxiety, dysphoria, or depression, or in their relationships with their romantic partners/spouses or their families-of-origin. I find strengths they've forgotten they have that can be used to defeat their problems. I use Narrative and Cognitive-Behavioral therapies and when working with couples I use Emotion Focused Therapy. Research has shown that 70-75% of couples who undergo EFT become closer and more intimate and 90% of them show significant improvements.
