Transgender/Gender Non-Conforming Community

I have special interest and expertise in working with those who express their gender in non-traditional ways.

Adolescents and Families

I provide a safe space both for an adolescent to express themselves honestly but also for parents and loved ones to share their fears, concerns, complaints and anxieties.  I am deeply committed to helping families that include members with questions about gender identity find ways to hear each other, understand each member’s needs and make a plan for moving forward.  Together we’ll ensure that while the gender non-conforming member is validated and supported, we also recognize the journeys other family members are experiencing at the same time.

In addition to offering psychotherapy, I am also happy to help connect your family to necessary community resources and accommodations.

Adults

Wherever you are on your personal journey of gender (identity, expression, etc.), I’ll meet you there.  I am deeply attuned to the ways in which the gender binary organizes our world, and can provide a safe and supportive space for you to determine what aspects of gender are most authentic to you. However, I am sensitive to the fact that while gender identity and expression may be one issue you wish to talk about, it is not the only issue that defines you and may not be the only issue you wish to talk about. I will see and work with you as a whole person.
