Psychotherapy, Trauma Therapy, Transgender Group Therapy, EMDR, Hypnotherapy
I “came out” at the age of 19, and when I was starting out in my career as a psychotherapist I got to work at GLASS (Gay and Lesbian Adolescent Social Services) for over 15 years. I learned to advocate for LGBTQI and HIV+ teens while I was also learning more about the impact of trauma and abuse on the human psyche. Most of these teens had severe abuse and often had developed mental illnesses either as a result of their abuse or as a result of their biological disposition to mental illness, or some combination of the two.
This organization gave me many opportunities to grow as a professional. I learned much about advocacy and treatment of my community as well as how to treat a variety of different mental health problems. I kept learning and educating myself about dissociative disorders and trauma throughout my career.
As a mental health professional, a feminist and an activist, I love what I do. On top of that, I get to work with a team of incredible therapists in my practice. We serve a large number of clients from the LGBTQI community. We also offer transgender group therapy sessions.
Our mottos are: “Because Sometimes… You Need More than a Friend….” and
“Sanity for the Insanity of Life”.
