We all can live rewarding, empowered lives.
Straight, gay, lesbian, bisexual, queer, pansexual, asexual, trans, transgender, transsexual, genderqueer, gender nonconforming, detransitioner, kinky, BDSM, sexworker, vanilla, monogamous, single, polyamorous, even unicorn… we all struggle. We have suffered trauma. We all seek happiness.
Therapy can be a challenging process of both exploring the past and creating the future. As someone trans and genderqueer-identified, I understand the terrible effects of stigma, discrimination, trauma, and depression on an individual's life. I seek to establish a comfortable environment in which we can work together, safely asking questions and making empowered decisions about to move forward, while simultaneously investigating questions of meaning.
Experienced with individuals, families, and couples, LGBTQ+ and alternate lifestyles, artistic professionals, sexuality, HIV/AIDS, grief and bereavement, addiction, and more, as well as in issues of marginalization and otherness, I am happy to work with people from adolescents to the elderly, of all orientations and expressions.
Let's collaborate to create the richest, happiest life for you possible.
* Heretic: Deriving from the Greek "Hairetikos" meaning "One who is able to choose."
