Providing a Safe Non-judgmental Place for Healing
If you have found my website, you must be looking for help and healing. I know this process can be overwhelming and make one feel vulnerable. I provide a safe, respectful, nonjudgmental setting to explore and discover solutions to diverse challenges. A critical element of therapy is the development of a trusting relationship between the client and therapist and can impact the healing process. Healing is a unique and individual process, as such, I believe it is important to learn of the uniqueness of each client and their goals for therapy.
I serve clients with a wide range of symptoms including depression, anxiety, panic attacks, gender dysphoria, as well as diverse diagnosis [bipolar, PTSD, schizophrenia, among others]. I work with individuals who experience domestic violence, loss & grief, social fears, substance abuse, and those who want a greater quality of life.
I have a doctorate degree in clinical social work (DSW), a licensed independent clinical social work (LICSW), and a licensed alcohol and drug counselor (LADC). While I am trained in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), certified in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy (EMDR), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI) and Emotion Focus Therapy (EFT, I tend to use a holistic approach - and listen to my client's wishes and desires.
I have been an advocate/trainer/educator on the health and well-being of LGBTQ people for over 20 years. I provide mental health services to LGBTQ adolescents and adults. In so doing, also offer services for couples and family members.
Letters of Support for Transgender Surgeries & Cross-Sex Hormone Treatment
For transgender and gender variant people seeking cross gender hormone treatments and other diverse body modifications, I write letters of support following the WPATH Standards of Care, Version 7 guidelines.
Support Group for Partners of Transgender People
This support group is focused on connecting people and their experiences as they grapple with changes and adaptations. Together, it can be an easier process.
I have clinical experience and supervise social work students and newly licensed social workers. I continue to educate myself on new developments in the field, conduct research, and am connected to the community as well as professional organizations.
