About My Clients

I provide specialized care to the LGBT+ community with an eye toward inclusion, non-judgment and sex-positivity. I work consciously with all variations of orientation, relationship, and gender in my practice, along with maintaining professional connections within the community to advance my work in sexual minority and gender-variant care (NCSF, WPATH).

My Background and Approach

Interpretation is about living your own story. You may find that others have a hard time seeing or understanding your perspective. By the same token, you may find it difficult to understand what others need from you. You may struggle with feeling like you don’t have the answers you need. I find many clients come to me with these concerns. My approach is geared towards bridging the communication gap and restoring understanding. Once you start to understand the effect interpretation has on your daily life and interactions, you can then start to focus on translation. We don’t all process information the same way. In recent years, it has become clearer than ever how radically different peoples’ perspectives can be about the same event or situation. If you feel like your partner isn’t hearing what you are saying, or they are hearing something completely different from what you are saying, if “you don’t understand,” is a common refrain in your relationships, I can definitely help.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I have a strong personal belief in the importance of LGBT-centered healthcare, including increasing equity and access. I have volunteered as an HIV test counselor for the UCSF Alliance Health Project, spent multiple years as a roadie for AIDS Lifecycle, and have served as a therapist for teens impacted by HIV through the UCLA Pediatric AIDS Coalition. I continue to participate in the Gender-Affirming Letter Access Project, providing some no-cost assessment and letter-writing services to the transgender community.
