As a Gender Specialist working with the transgender community since 1999, I can help you to improve your self-confidence and create the gendered life you want. We'll discuss your specific gender goals including the coming out process. You may also want to work on life issues not related to gender, with a trans affirmative therapist. I am a cisgender (born female) with over twenty years of personal experience within the queer/LGBT communities.
I have nearly twenty years of experience as a Gender Specialist providing psychotherapy for the diverse transgender and non binary community. Since 2002 I have been a member of World Professional Association for Transgender Health, a consultant to other therapists and am now a WPATH GEI SOC7 Certified Member and WPATH Mentor for therapists working on becoming WPATH GEI SOC7 Certified Members.
Working with Me
I enjoy working with people across the lifespan considering gender changes, as well as their families and loved ones. I also work with people who happen to be trans, intersex or non binary and simply want a therapist who understands their experience and never asks questions just because they are curious.
I support people considering re-transition, finding a new path on their gender journey or those considering going off hormones.
Check out the resource page and book shop to learn about what it means to be transgender or non binary and for resources.
My therapy practice has room for clients Tuesdays and Thursdays before 6pm. I am only providing video and phone appts during this period where we are working to prevent the spread of the Corona Virus.
I have *no* more room for children under 16. My low fee slots are full so I can only see clients who can afford my full fee.
I have additional availability for WPATH mentorship or consultation with therapists.
There is one gender therapy intensive slot available Tuesday afternoons.
You may book a free, first time 10 min phone/video appointment so that we can figure out if I am a good fit for you. A credit/debit card must be entered to register for the brief appt but you will never be charged. If times offered do not work for you, contact me.
I have a great deal of experience writing letters to help people begin medical interventions (a.k.a. Assessments/ Gender Health Evaluations) for blockers, hormones or surgeries. Our meetings never involve you having to "prove you are trans or non binary" but do include discussion of your history and goals. We explore the health, fertility and social/occupational impact of your changes. If you want to access other therapists who offer letter writing free of charge visit The GALAP

Consultation for Therapists
Since 2002 I have provided consultation for therapists doing clinical work with transgender, non binary, intersex and questioning clients. Consults take place individually or in monthly consult groups. Learn more about opportunities to expand your expertise as a gender therapist. I am a WPATH GEI SOC7 Certified Member and a WPATH Mentor so your hours of consultation can count toward your certification.
