I am a Queer-identified Marriage and Family Therapist who provides LGBTQIA-affirming therapy to adolescents and adults, couples, and families. I am trained in and can provide letters for gender-affirming surgery and other medical procedures. I am informed by my own lived experience as a white transgender man and I operate based on a social justice and systemic framework. While I do not see LGBTQIA+ identity as a “problem” to be addressed in therapy, I do think that Queer people who are dealing with mental health challenges face additional barriers due to discrimination and minority stress. I strive to be intersectional in my approach and incorporate awareness of other identities and forms of oppression. I practice relational and trauma-informed therapy.
