I specialize in working with gender identity development ( transgender , non-binary individuals), gender dysphoria , and sexual orientation. I primarily work with children, adolescents, and young adults. Treatment focus includes anxiety management, gender dysphoria , improving self-esteem, connection to community, relationship skills, and readiness to transition (if desired). Whether you're exploring new feelings of gender variance or have been identifying as trans* for years, there are times when falling outside the traditional gender binary can bring up feelings of anxiety, stress, or confusion. Working with a therapist trained in LGBTQIA issues and gender non-conformity can help.

I'm a trans woman and licensed independent clinical social worker in the states of Washington and Minnesota, with over five years of experiences spanning transgender care, sexual assault advocacy, community mental health, and behavioral health care.
You are not too much. Nor is what you have been through too much. If you struggle with gender or sexual identity, sexual or domestic violence, or other forms of lasting trauma, I can help. Just know that I believe you to be, at this moment, exactly who you need to be in order to survive. I also believe that things can get better.

I am a Queer Transgender guy.
Sometimes personal tragedy strikes and you need to talk. Often systemic oppression and microaggressions can cause depression, anxiety and PTSD. I believe that hope is an endurant quality that gets us through the hardest parts of our life. Counseling is about restoring hope and advocacy within the context of an apathetic society. I teach self advocacy skills and boundary setting. My overall approach is compassion focused. I believe that clients know what is in their best interest and I hope to assist you in reaching your goals.

I am affirming of transgender and non-binary people and enjoy supporting and exploring personal identity and experience.
As a therapist, my goal is to walk alongside clients as we explore their unique experiences and struggles. I believe that people have innate creative abilities when it comes to healing and self-understanding. Sometimes stress and trauma can block or limit our ability to connect to that innate skill. I utilize relational and strengths-based approaches and support people’s understanding of their own self and path. My therapy background revolves around trauma, attachment, and growth in parenting/caregiving. I enjoy working with parents/caregivers of children with complex social, behavioral, relational, and developmental needs.

I have specialized knowledge and experience working with transgender clients, poly clients, and those who are managing chronic illness.
I offer individual, couple, and family therapy. I am a systemic therapist. I believe your community, your family of origin, and the greater world in which you live all impact your situation. My focus is on promoting your strengths to help you achieve your goals. I use a variety of therapeutic interventions, but the common thread that links them is Mindfulness. In my work with couples, I apply Gottman theories to your preferred family structure. I enjoy exploring gender identity and also enjoy working with people to strengthen their relationships with themselves and others who are important in their lives.

My specialty is working with transgender and gender non-conforming clients.
Ideally, I would like to use my extensive training and 40+ years of counseling experience to support, assist and advocate for clients whose personal identity lies on the LGBTQIA2S+ spectrum, while they explore, investigate, or plan the rest of their life journey in their true identity. Naturally, I do NOT exclude others from becoming clients, since I also have a wealth of experience serving clients from the vast straight and cisgender community.

Are you feeling not right in your body or as if you don’t belong to the gender you were assigned at birth? Are you afraid to come out to someone you love? Did your partner or spouse tell you he/she/they are transgender and you are left with confusion and fear? Are you a parent of a child who came out to you and identifies as LBGTQIA and you don’t know how to process your feelings or take a deeper look within? Do you use substances and feel stigmatized by being called an “addict” with no hope for support? Do you use substances and are not ready to stop, but want someone to talk to that will accept you where you are at?

Call today for a free consult! Also, yes! If you are transgender , neurodivergent, BIPOC, clairvoyant, polyam, and/or have other identities oppressed by society you are welcome here!.
I help stressed out over thinkers find healthy self love and balance. Call for a free consult! For over thinkers nervousness runs on autopilot in the background. You don't know what career is right. You put up with being treated in unhealthy ways. The worry about how you are perceived by others is constant. You rehash conversations in your head over and over. You're irritable and insecure, gripped by self doubt. Part of you knows that these negative thoughts are ridiculous but they take over anyway. You just want to wake up calm. To have a healthy relationship. To work a fulfilling career without feeling lost or fearful.

I provide affirmative psychotherapy that values diversity and respects the individual, including gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender individuals and couples.
I am a licensed psychologist with 20 years experience providing psychotherapy and consultation. My approach is gentle, respectful and compassionate, including challenge and encouragement as appropriate. I offer short-term and long-term psychotherapy, emphasizing the development of a warm, empathic therapeutic relationship. My treatment approach is integrative and most influenced by psychoanalytic, humanistic and developmental theories. Psychotherapy involves verbalizing your thoughts and feelings, exploring relational and behavioral patterns, and understanding how past experiences may impact you now. The needs and goals of the individual guide my therapeutic approach. My personal style is down-to-earth and interactive, with an occasional dash of humor.

I primarily (but not exclusively) work with cisgender women, transgender women, femme-identified people, non-binary folx, and queer people of all stripes.
I believe that all people are inherently deserving of intimacy, compassion, and love. Often, the biggest challenge is giving these things to ourselves. Only through coming to understand and love ourselves can we understand and love the world around us. Many of us have internalized the messaging that we don’t deserve to have our needs met, whether that messaging came from our family, our romantic partners, or culture at large. I believe in the inherent potential of all people to grow, change, and find their best selves. This applies equally to individuals and relationships: we can best love our partners when we best love ourselves.
