Clinical Psychologist in Sacramento, CA
I specialize in gender identity, exploration, and issues. I have advanced training in this area and I am a WPATH GEI SOC 7 Certified Member. I have been working with gender for many years, starting with my Bachelor's Degree in Women's Studies (now more appropriately named in universities as Gender Studies), continuing with my Masters in Social Work on Women's Reproductive Rights Policy and then focusing my work in my Doctoral Project on suicidal behavior among gender minorities.
I have specialized in this area for many years, including my work with gender minorities and gender identity. See below.
Anxiety can present in our lives for a variety of reasons. When that reason is gender-related concerns or gender dysphoria, anxiety can be debilitating. I have training specifically in this area to treat gender-related anxiety.
Feminist therapy does not mean necessarily what people think it does...it breaks down on the power differential that sometimes people take on as a person with some education and experience in an area. What feminist therapy does is centers the client, de-pathologizes dis-ease and challenges power structures.
