Gender Identity

I have worked with trans, non-binary, gender fluid, and gender non-conforming people since1994. I feel passionate about providing appropriate and gender-affirming therapy for those of us who are currently under attack and are often mistreated even when seeking mental health care.


If you are sorting out your gender identity or gender expression, we can explore your internal experience, how to deal with others, and changes you want to make. I do not have a preconceived idea of what a person’s gender expression should be. Instead, I assist you to understand and pursue the choices that are right for you.


Some people who come to see me transitioned years ago, and they want a therapist who is comfortable and well-versed in the issues that trans and gender non-conforming people often deal with.

Children & Parents

When parents find that their child is expressing their gender in ways that don’t conform to our society’s usual expectations, they are often concerned, confused, or upset. They want to do what is best for their child, but are conflicted about what approach to take.


I help families to gain comfort and figure out beneficial ways of handling the many situations they face. I do not bring a set idea of what a child’s path will look like. Instead, I assist children and their parents to gain clarity about what feels right and makes the most sense for them at their current stage.
