About My Clients

My clients are looking for a LGBTQ and gender affirming therapist. They may have been hurt by spiritual therapists in the past and are now looking for a secular therapist. They are preteen, tweens, teenagers or adults and they may have concerns with anxiety, panic attacks or are in a stressful relationship with their spouse, partner or parents and extended family. They might need to come out to their family friends or at work as part of the LGBTQ or transgender community.

My Background and Approach

Helping people live authentically is something that I have loved doing all my life. When a person discovers who they are that makes them the happiest through therapy, I feel like we have done good work together. In the both the past and present, my experience includes treating clients exploring and affirming their gender identity and sexuality as well as over eight years of experience working with children and adolescents. I am passionate about and expertly trained in working with the LGBTQIA community, particularly people who are transgender and queer. My clients say they like my compassionate, yet direct style. I am a member of WPATH (World Professional Association for Transgender Health) currently in pursuit of my WPATH GEI certification and follow their soc v7. I also support the model of informed consent when working with the transgender community. I am also a public speaker and educator on topics about the LGBTQIA community and gender identity.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a secular therapist that is part of The Secular Therapist Network and I believe in freedom from religion. In my personal beliefs, I support the rights of the LGBQ and transgender community. I volunteer my time as an ambassador of the Out Georgia Business Alliance. I also believe that animals bring an immense amount of love and belonging in our lives and support animal rescue causes and am the loving owner of four rescue dogs and two cats.

  • Agnosticism
  • Atheism
  • Christianity
  • Judaism
  • Wicca/Paganism
