About My Clients

My ideal client is trying to finally be who they want to be and they are struggling to figure out how to help themselves balance their gender identity, sexual orientation, values, religious identities, family situation, friendships/chosen family, along with the rest of their life. They want a clinician who will help them recognize what brightens them and a clinician who will support them in feeling their best self, whatever that means to them.

My Background and Approach

I'm very trans and lgbqiqap - affirming. I'm polyamory and kink-friendly and own a group practice with one other awesome clinicial employee (a psychologist named Dr. Camilla Williams who is fluent in ASL and is fabulous). I have a background in Sociology and Human Sexuality studies and pride myself on my warm, supportive, open, and empowering stance. I will work to help you better understand your feelings, your identities, and assist you in clarifying what you want in your life.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I'm a queer Jew and a mom from the East Coast who is making home in the San Diego area. I volunteer for the Board of Directors for the San Diego Psych Association both as a member of the board and as the Chair of the LGBT Committee. I work hard on my own privilege, especially around race. I am an advocate and, at times an activist, although I don't want to chain myself to buildings anymore. I do very much enjoy presenting and training therapists to be more trans and LGBQIQA-affirming in their work and am a super fan of providing consultation for other counselors. I love helping people negotiate their faith, religion, and sexuality and/or gender(s) and helping social justice activists figure out how much they can give without burning out. I'm also a boss of one fabulous employee, Dr. Camilla Williams, a psychologist who specializes in working with people around their identities and is fluent in ASL. I love supporting her in doing great work with her clients.
