Transgender & Gender-Expansive Children
When your child shares with you that they have questions about their gender, it can be an overwhelming time for families. Sometimes a child's gender journey is clear, sometimes it winds down a twisting road.

I WORK WITH YOU, YOUR CHILD, AND ANY ADDITIONAL FAMILY MEMBERS (SIBLINGS, GRANDPARENTS, ETC.) TO BEST SUPPORT YOUR FAMILY AND YOUR CHILD THROUGH THE JOURNEY TO AN AUTHENTIC, RESILIENT SELF. I WORK WITH CHILDREN AGES 3 AND UP.
My involvement, connection, and commitment to transgender, gender non-conforming, and gender-diverse communities proudly dates back several decades.

There are many wonderful sources of information and support available for families entering the transgender/non-binary/gender-diverse communities.

Choosing to begin psychotherapy can feel overwhelming for many people. With time, dedication, additional tools, and a supportive relationship, new options emerge for greater personal well-being and improved interpersonal relationships.

I bring extensive training, compassion, and a sense of humor to the work of personal transformation.

OUR BEHAVIORS AND CHOICES HAVE MEANING: IN ORDER TO CHANGE WHAT IS NOT WORKING, IT HELPS TO UNDERSTAND THE OFTEN OUTDATED EMOTIONAL LOGIC GUIDING US. TOGETHER, WE WILL WORK TO UNDERSTAND UNDERLYING DISTRESSING SYMPTOMS AND ESTABLISH NEW PERSONAL AND RELATIONAL PATTERNS.
