About My Clients

Are you exploring your gender identity and wondering if the gender you were assigned at birth just isn't right? Or do you know who your authentic self is and you just want a therapist who will help you through the day to day slog without questioning your gender or using the wrong pronouns? I am a cisgender straight therapist who is dedicated to helping transgender and gender expansive youth and young adults on their gender journey by providing a safe space to work with a welcoming ally.

My Background and Approach

While I have a background in using CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy), I find myself using a variety of approaches with my clients, including mindfulness and Brainspotting. I don't think that any one modality fits all people and so I use multiple techniques to provide the best care for my clients. My goal is to help you feel confident in your ability to face the world, and I will provide you with the tools you need to do that. I have experience working from a trauma perspective and can help you identify how your past is shaping your present and what you need to do to change your future. I am trained in writing letters for gender affirming surgeries and can help connect you to resources to navigate that process.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Our lives do not exist in a vacuum. What is happening in the world impacts you everyday and it is often hard to separate the personal from the events of the world. I value being aware of the social justice movements that are happening, I value being on top of political events as they happen, and I value your ability to talk safely in our sessions about how those events are playing out in your life. I will always say that Black Lives Matter and that Trans Lives Matter. If you struggle with those statements, but are willing to explore your struggles, I am here to listen and support.
