When seeking care, nothing is scarier to transgender and non binary individuals than a provider who’s poorly informed about the issues facing their community. From discrimination and harassment to mental health issues & the process of transitioning, having providers who are informed and affirmative can make a huge difference, whether your current mental health concerns are related to your gender or not. Whether you are looking for support related to coming out, transitioning, or just wishing to explore your gender, we've got your back. Both Noah and Dana have both lived and professional experience in working with trans and NB folx.

Are you struggling to navigate relationships, friendships, and balancing school or work at the same time? When we think we have it all figured out, life throws us a curve ball, the death of a loved one or loss of a job. Imagine adding a layer of anxiety or depression. What about introversion? Just for fun, let's also add a layer for people that identify as LGBTQ+. Coming out as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender , non binary, or gender fluid can be confusing for your straight, cis family and friends. Whether you identify with this because you experience this regularly or someone you love feels this way.

***I am not currently accepting new clients*** Struggling with life transitions, creative ruts, and relationships are difficult in any situation but especially so if you do not follow the heteronormative path. It can be difficult to open up to someone when you are not certain that they understand Queer and Alternative relationship structures. I use an individualized approach with each client to build a therapeutic relationship based on specific goals. I focus my work around issues regarding LGBTQ+, sexuality, non-binary and transgender , complex relationships, power dynamics, sexual health, BDSM/Kink, and other dynamics.

The decision to begin therapy does not make you weak minded or a weak person; it does not mean you have failed, it means you're ready to get better! Everyone has different reasons for attending therapy: anxiety, trauma, family, relationship issues, intimacy issues, gender dysphoria .... No matter what made you take this step know that you are in a safe space where your rights and beliefs are fully validated. As a client focused therapist I will not give you advise but rather help you find your own solutions to the barriers lying in your way that's keeping you from living your best life.
