About My Clients

I see clients ages 4 and up for individual and/or family therapy, depending on your need. I work with clients who already know their gender identity and are struggling with transitioning, self acceptance, anxiety, depression, as well as clients who are just starting on their gender journey. All are welcomed!

My Background and Approach

I believe your gender is YOURS. That you can't be fit in to a "label" or "box" that you get to check each time you fill out a form. In our work, I focus on compassion, curiosity, and challenging. I bring compassion, care and concern to my clients where they are in the moment, curiosity about how to get you where you'd like to be, and challenging you to step out of your comfort zone as is appropriate and when it's time, something you get to decide. I carry a more casual atmosphere during session, an ebb and flow of conversation that's more natural and relaxing than what many think therapy to be like.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am an interfaith person, in which I believe we have many finite words for the infinite. I was raised protestant and evangelical Christian, went to seminary, and now consider myself a person who believes that God (he, she, they) can not be confined to our finite language. This results in many varying experiences of spirituality, which can look like the practices of Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, etc. I don't practice spirituality of exclusivity, even though texts of different religions may be explicit in exclusivity. I believe spirituality has a place in our work together only if you find it to be beneficial to you.
