I love being a therapist. And I love being a therapist in the LGBTQIA+ community in which I live. Initially I was quite happily focused on the LGB community. Then a few transgender clients found me. Then a few more, and a few more after that. It did not take long for me to see this specialization as a professional calling of sorts. Since then, I have worked with diverse issues affecting our community that include navigating the coming out process, sexual orientation identity, understanding what it means to be transgender or gender diverse, healthy and safe gender expression, navigating the gender transition process, relationship struggles, family issues, sexual concerns, mood issues, anxiety problems, and stress management. Understanding that transgender and gender diverse clients frequently struggle to incorporate their identities into the mainstream culture, identity exploration and formation has become a large part of my work in supportive atmosphere designed to help you live your best life.
As a person, I have lots of interests outside of my professional identity. I am a bit of an artist. I am an avid reader of all genres of literature. I enjoy great meals with friends, running, movies, hiking, my cats, family outings, dancing with friends until we look utterly silly, watching live sports, playing ball in the local LGBTQ softball league, politics, social justice, philanthropy….and the list goes on and on!
