As a therapist and ally, my passion for inclusion has No limits.
Although lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) individuals share universal issues, individual concerns are unique and differ from one person to the next. It has been my experience that many LGBT individuals feel more comfortable with a therapist who is familiar with the issues they face as well as someone who is accepting, supportive, and encouraging during treatment.
I provide affirmative therapy in a safe environment for all LGBTQ couples, individuals, and teens and am prepared to address the complexities facing those in this community. I have extensive experience working with the community and a few of the challenges that I tend to focus on include:
1. Relationships and Dating
2. Living with HIV/AIDS
3. Coming Out
4. Sexual Compulsion
6. Sexual/Gender Identity and transitions
8. Intimacy Issues
9. Dealing with Shame
10. Internalized homophobia
For some individuals, sexual orientation and identity issues may be the cause for depression, anxiety and other emotional stressors. I address these in our work together. For others, these issues may not be at the forefront and so, I will work with you to focus on your specific individual needs and life problems.
