More Info About My Practice

My psychology practice is:

MULTICULTURALLY - ORIENTED

Your ethnicity, religion, age, nationality, socioeconomic status, gender identity, and sexual orientation matter.
Because they are aspects about you
that provide context
and perspective
about you and how you make your way in the world.

Together, we will talk about how you and your identities make you who you are.

LGBTQIQA - AFFIRMING
I strongly believe that
identifying as lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans*, queer, intersex, questioning, and/or asexual
or men having sex with men (MSM) or women having sex with women (WSW)
is fine, if not fabulous.

KINK AND POLY - AFFIRMATIVE
polyamory, non-monogamy, and kink - affirmative
not everyone is monogamously - oriented and that is okay
adults who are kinky or practice BDSM are welcome in my practice

TRANSGENDER IDENTITY - AFFIRMATIVE
experience in working with people of transgender identity, history, or experience
extensive training
membership in WPATH
offer group for people who identify as intersex
can write letters for clients who want access to medical interventions

WOMAN-FRIENDLY
feminist
believe that there are many ways to be a woman
will not use the terms "lady" or "girl" to talk about adult females

** Please call me for a free 15 minute phone consultation to find out if we are a good fit.**

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I am especially skilled at working with people who identify as transgender explore their gender identity and how they want to proceed in their lives. Together, we can look at their religious beliefs or community, their culture, their understanding of themselves and work towards finding a more fulfilling and authentic sense of self.

The Duration and Frequency of Therapy

I see the best results in individual therapy when I meet with a client once a week at least to start treatment. After we have build a strong therapy relationship, we can see if working together more or less often would be of most benefit to you and the issues you are working on.
