I am a California Licensed Psychologist and Licensed Clinical Social Worker in California and Oregon and have been providing gender-affirming mental health services since 2005.
I work with clients who are going through a transition, want to change an aspect of their life, and who are looking for perspective through a difficult situation.
I specialize in gender-affirmative therapy for transgender, gender non-binary, gender non-conforming, gender expansive folks and people questioning their gender identity. The big picture goal in gender-affirmative therapy is to turn down the “noise” in your head and get you on track to living your best life. I also provide support letters for transition-related surgeries and procedures.learn more about GAT
I provide therapy services in a non-judgmental and affirming, strengths-based framework. What that means in simpler language is that I do not judge your situation or circumstances, I carefully monitor for areas that you excel in, and build on those to strengthen your path towards your goals.
My style has been described as warm, welcoming with a sense of authenticity. Whatever is weighing on your mind, I would be happy to talk to you about it. You might be curious what types of emotional distress I have treated in my therapeutic work. You can find more information on my about page.
