Welcome! I am a licensed therapist with over 20 years of experience, working primarily with California residents online.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Oakland, CA

About My Clients

Welcome! As your therapist, my aim is to provide a sanctuary where we address your concerns from a holistic perspective. My practice is tailored for individuals who identify as queer, trans, non-binary, or are exploring gender and/or sexuality. Embracing a trauma-informed approach, I acknowledge the experiences you've endured and can support your journey toward healing. I do best with people who like being asked deep questions and who are motivated to make changes.

My Background and Approach

As a Gender Therapist, I have 20+ yrs of experience working with youth & adults who are questioning, identify as trans, non binary, intersex, or re-transitioning. I provide Evals/letters for medical interventions like hormones and surgeries. Partners & family who need support related to having a trans or non binary loved one are also welcome. I offer consultation for therapists in groups and individually on gender-focused clinical work. WPATH GEI SOC8 Certified Member and Certified WPATH Mentor. Beyond that specialization, I am an experienced therapist for mental health concerns. I don't just focus on gender with clients, I can help address depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and relationship struggles. I am also an EMDR therapist and provide trauma therapy when needed.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe everyone has the capacity to create a life that feels whole and satisfying. Change, however, only comes by doing things that can make you uncomfortable--because to change you need to step out of that usual comfort zone. Together, in therapy, I help you take those small steps that can lead to making those bigger changes.
