I have assisted more than 500 transgender individuals of all ages in their transitions,from social transition at school/on the job, to Gender Confirming Surgery and post-transition issues. I also counsel SOFFAs (significant others, family, friends, allies) to help support their loved one in transition,. I provide couples therapy as well as counseling to non-traditional partnerships, e.g., consensual non-monogamy, polyamorous relationships, and legal three-parent families. I support “sexual minorities,” including BDSM/Kink communities and am able to provide counseling to partners in a D/S relationship.
I was not born in the United States and immigrated alone at the age of 20. The therapy and counseling I provide take racial, ethnic and cultural diversities into consideration. I speak Spanish.
