I have worked with LGBT people for over a decade. I provide a safe, respectful, nonjudgmental setting to explore and discover solutions to diverse challenges. A critical element of therapy is the development of a trusting relationship between the client and therapist and can impact the healing process. Healing is a unique and individual process, as such, I believe it is important to learn of the uniqueness of each client and their goals for therapy.
I am a clinical social worker trained in DBT, CBT, ACT, trauma, and substance abuse. I served as a national trainer on transgender health care. I write letters for cross-sex hormone treatment & gender confirming surgeries, per WPATH SOC.
I have clinical experience and supervise social work students and newly licensed social workers. I continue to educate myself on new developments in the field, conduct research, and am connected to the community as well as professional organizations.
