I am a queer, white, cis, neurodivergent, fat, and chronically ill social worker committed to expanding access to high-quality, affirming health care for LGBTQIA+ people. I have received extensive training from the National LGBTQIA+ Health Education Center and the Center of Excellence for Transgender Health.
I am no longer accepting new clients for ongoing therapy, but I am always available to write letters in support of gender-affirming care. I believe in your ability to know yourself, your identity, and what you need. I’d like to partner with you to talk through the requirements of these letters, how your experience fits with those requirements, and how I can write a letter that meets your needs and is authentic to who you are. I follow WPATH Standards of Care, Version 8. I am also able to assist with name and gender marker changes on identity documents, as well as connection with any support or community resources that may be helpful.
